WILLIAMSBURG — Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group’s Clinical Research Division in Williamsburg is currently recruiting for two asthma trials for people with moderate to severe asthma. The trials aim to assist those who have difficulty controlling their asthma.
Approximately 25 million Americans have asthma, and ten Americans die of asthma every day, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. The study hopes to assist people who are having difficulty with their asthma symptoms or are interested in trying a new inhaler. The studies will run from eight months to one year in length. Both trials will require at least one clinic visit every month for the duration of the trial.
“I’ve had patients who couldn’t perform their activities or hang out with their friends and family just because of their asthma,” said Dr. Vijay Subramaniam, Williamsburg Clinical Research Director and lead investigator for the trial. “Now they are doing so well that people are having trouble keeping up with them.”
Here are the eligibility criteria for the trials:
– Be at least 18 years or older
– Been diagnosed with asthma less than six months ago
– Does not have confirmed covid-19 or be suspected of having covid-19
– Are currently being treated for asthma
– Must not be a current smoker
These trials also have eligibility requirements specific to each. TPMG Clinical Research staff will screen each potential participant based on their individual needs and asthma history.
