Asthma with Dust Mite Allergy Study

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


The purpose of this research study is to help us understand which people who have asthma and who are allergic house dust mites, are more likely to have increased asthma symptoms a few hours after inhaling dust mites. If you have this drop in lung function, you may be invited to participate in other studies non-steroidal medication for asthma attacks.
