Asthmatics needed for clinical trial

This International study is investigating the treatment of asthma and is being run through Waikato Hospital.

The purpose of this study is to test the theory that asthma control can be achieved, or even improved, by taking your inhalers when you need them rather than taking them regularly, regardless of asthma symptoms.

This study will run for 12 months and involve 7 visits. Most visits will take less than an hour, although the first visit may take slightly longer.

You will need to be:

  • 18 – 75 years
  • Diagnosed with Asthma
  • Using a reliever (eg: blue Inhaler like Ventolin)

Participants will receive study related medication free of charge and be reimbursed for reasonable travel costs for each study visit.
