Volunteers Needed for Research Study Related to Asthma and Childhood Obesity

Volunteers needed for research study titled “Asthma and Childhood Obesity: Understanding Potential Mechanisms and Identifying Strategies to Improve Respiratory Symptoms”

Your child may qualify for this study if they meet the following criteria:

  • Boys and girls, 8 – 12 years old
  • Physician diagnosis of asthma
  • No history of heart disease, diabetes, or kidney disease
  • Able to exercise on a stationary bike

Following an initial telephone or email questionnaire, eligible participants will be scheduled for study visits. During these visits, we will measure lung function and exercise capacity. We will also test two different treatments for reducing exercise-induced asthma.

There is no charge to participate in the study. Study participants will receive compensation for each visit. Visits typically take place at the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center building and at the University of Nevada Las Vegas campus.
