Blood and Lung Responses to Infection

Blood and Lung Responses to Infection

The overall goal of this project is to study the inflammatory response of lung and blood cells
to infection with Burkholderia pseudomallei.

As a part of our study, we ask eligible individuals to undergo a blood draw and a bronchoscopy (a procedure to obtain cells from the lungs) at Harborview Medical Center.


Subjects are asked to undergo a blood draw and bronchoscopy to obtain blood and lung cells. A pre-procedure COVID-19 test is also required. All cost and parking are covered by the study. Study volunteers will receive $200 for participating.
