Severe Asthma (Flyer Full Text)
16 Week Treatment Periods -
The study will range from 1 to 3.5 years, depending on the date of enrollment.
Each study treatment is 16 weeks.
If enrolled early in the study, and qualified for each individual treatment, you could receive up to 5 treatments if 18 years old or older. Up to 2 treatments if 12 to 17 years old.
You first go to a clinic to complete screening visits to tell us more about you. 4-6 Hour Visit – screening visits can take about 4-6 hours and may be split over different days. If you are eligible for the study, you will take part in treatment visits (about 2 hours each). At these visits, we do medical tests and give out study treatments to use at home.
Once a Month X 2 Hour Visit:
Time slots for these visits will be flexible, and participants will receive appointment reminders. You’ll spend time at home taking measurements and tracking how treatments affect your asthma.
The PrecISE Clinical Trial: Multiple treatments will be tested in a placebo controlled randomized trial. Each participant will receive between 1 and 5 treatments, depending on age and enrollment date. Treatment periods will each last 16 weeks, requiring monthly visits. If they choose, participants can receive study provided baseline asthma therapies and asthma controller medications.
New Type of Asthma Study:
PrecISE is different because it is a study to learn what treatments are best for each person, instead of only people with the most common types of asthma. This individual-based care is called Precision Medicine. We will use Precision Medicine to understand which treatments are best for each person.
