Asthma Sample Collection Study - Detailed Protocol Information

Patients with asthma may be able to participate in a sample collection study at the NIH Clinical Research Center. This study involves a procedure called a bronchoscopy, in which cells and fluids are collected from the airways using a pencil-thin tube that is passed into the lungs. The purpose of this research is to identify factors that may cause airway inflammation in patients with asthma. 

Eligible patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation at the NIH Clinical Research Center in Bethesda, Maryland. There is no cost to you for the medical evaluation. You will receive monetary compensation for participating in the study.
