Teens and Families

In 2013, there were 13.8 million missed school days among children aged 5-17 due to asthma.

Asthma is the most common chronic childhood disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Young people with severe asthma deal with symptoms that can have a dramatic impact on daily life.  If you or someone you love has severe asthma, you already know this. 

Frequent visits to the doctor’s office and to the ER can create a lot of stress on the entire family. Severe asthma in young people may get worse over time and often does not respond well to available treatments. 

The PrecISE asthma study will enroll participants who are ages 12 and up. Teen participants can receive up to three different treatments during the study. Some teens may be a part of the study for up to two years. Information from the study can be reported to a participant’s doctor with the participant’s permission.
