The UCSD Airway Research & Clinical Trials Center and the American Lung Association is trying to find out if treating chronic (long lasting) rhinitis and sinusitis with nasal steroids helps to control asthma symptoms. Rhinitis and sinusitis are terms used to describe redness and congestion that may affect the lining of the nose and sinuses. Asthma is a disease that causes inflammation (swelling, irritation, redness) and narrowing of the bronchial tubes. We are trying to understand how rhinitis and sinusitis affect asthma. To find out we need males or females over 12 years of age. Involves 5 clinic visits, 3 phone contacts for about 6 to 7 months. Includes FDA approved medication for asthma and allergies.
Qualified participants will receive breathing tests, physical exams and asthma assessments at no cost. Subjects will receive payment for time and travel. For more information call (888)UCSD-Air (827-3247) or (619)471-0821
