DOES YOUR CHILD WHEEZE? JOIN OUR STUDY LOOKING AT A TREATMENT FOR ASTHMA AND BREATHING PROBLEMS!
Does your child experience breathing difficulties due to asthma, wheezing or allergies?
Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine and Riley Children's Hospital are investigating a treatment for asthma in young children to determine if it:
- Helps prevent asthma as children grow older;
- Lessens the severity of breathing problems;
- Stops young kids from developing new allergies or reduce existing allergies;
- Decreases wheezing during and after the treatment period.
- Children 2-3 years of age
- Family history of asthma, allergies or eczema
- Had wheezing symptoms in the past year
Participants will receive this medicine by injection every 4 weeks for 2 years and will then be followed for an additional 2 years:
- Receive an injection of either the study drug, Omalizumab, or placebo every 4 weeks.
- Attend study visits every 4 months for clinical assessment, management of respiratory symptoms, and completion of study questionnaires
- Participate in monthly phone calls to assess how your child is doing.
- No injections will take place during years 3 and 4
