Severe Asthma




NEW CLINICAL STUDY SEEKING SEVERE ASTHMA PARTICIPANTS





If you have Severe Asthma and your current symptoms are not well controlled, this study may be right for you. Despite standard treatment, up to 50% of asthma patients have symptoms that are not well controlled, with a negative impact on quality of life.


The purpose of this research study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drug when administered in severe asthma patients whose symptoms are otherwise uncontrolled with current standard therapy.


More about the study:
The study drug (Benralizumab) is administered by Subcutaneous injection (SC).
This trial is 48 – 56 weeks long, requiring 17 – 19 visits and 0 overnight stays


If you are interested, full study details and eligibility criteria are listed here.


Eligibility Criteria:


Participants must:
between 12 – 75 years old
have asthma diagnosed by a doctor.
have been treated with an inhaler in the past 3 months
have had at least 1 exacerbation (worsening of your asthma that requires medical intervention or a change in medications) in the past year


Participants must not:
have severe lung disease other than asthma

If you’re not familiar with clinical trials, here are some FAQs:
What are clinical trials?


Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans. All new investigational medications and devices must undergo several clinical trials, often involving thousands of people.
Why participate in a clinical trial?


You will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval. You will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical trial staff at research facilities. Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

What is a Spoonie?

WHAT IS A SPOONIE???I used to look at people so differently.

I don't look sick. 
Sure, I have gained weight due to my illness. But, there is nothing on the outside that screams I need this parking place. I have no wheelchair, no crutches, no service dog, I have all of my limbs. Now, I just look like I am too lazy to walk any further. 


I know. Some of you may know. We have a secret. 
Within our able looking bodies, hides a serious disability. One that takes our breath away, limits the amount of physical activity we can handle, one that is progressing a little …

I used to have a wonderful job that I loved doing. I worked as a nursery hand in a wholesale plant nursery. I moved between two different areas every six months. For the first six months I would be doing all areas of the work place. I would transplant baby plants into trays on a conveyor belt or moving trays of plants to their designated area to grow. Once ready we would be moving the trays from the ground to a trailer attached to a buggy and put them down ready to pick orders. Staking tomato plants, or watering the entire stock. Sweltering on hot days in greenhouses. There were many different areas and depending on staff and stock as to what our job for the day would be. The other six months I would spend at the main nursery department as a dispatch worker. Getting plants ready to load on trucks and be del…
