What we are studying
This is a research study that is being done to learn more about severe asthma by comparing people with severe asthma to those with milder forms of asthma over time. You are being asked to join a research study to follow your overall health and the health of your lungs for up to three and a half years. In this study, we will look at your breathing tests, your level of inflammation in your blood and breath, the
number of and how bad your asthma attacks are, your medication use and other conditions related to asthma over time. We will also look at how steroids affect your asthma and the inflammation in your airways.
