Allergies & Immune System

Participate in Research is designed to connect potential volunteers with open research studies. We are looking for volunteers just like you to help answer important questions about allergies and the immune system. This page lists studies that may apply to you or someone you know. If you find a study that you’d like to participate in, you can contact the study team with questions or to volunteer. Join us to improve the health of others.

Active Studies

  • The University of Washington is seeking volunteers for a genital herpes (HSV-2) study. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the body’s immune response to genital herpes infections. This will be done by looking at tissue collected from genital skin biopsies and......

  • The VIVA Clinical Trial (Vaccine to Interrupt Progression of Vulvar and Anal Neoplasia) will test whether the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can improve the health of people who have been previously diagnosed with pre-cancerous lesions. We plan to enroll men and women in the Seattle......

  • Researchers at Seattle Children’s Research Institute want to find ways to understand gastrointestinal disease such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Graft-Versus-Host-Disease (GVHD). We want to compare healthy cells from the gastrointestinal tract to cells from people with gastrointestinal diseases. We......

  • We are interested in collecting blood samples from people who have allergies and/or asthma. Allergies such as hay fever and pet allergy are very common health problems. Cells in the blood that are called “inflammatory cells” are involved in the development of asthma and/or allergies,......

  • The purpose of this study is to understand why people have different susceptibility to infection, how the immune system fights infections, and differences between individual’s immune systems. We’re looking for people who have been diagnosed with tuberculosis or another Mycobacterium. Study procedures involve a blood......

  • Malaria is a deadly disease that affects 300-500 million people every year. We hope to develop vaccines and medicines to prevent and limit malaria disease and deaths. The Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center is looking for volunteers to take part in an upcoming research study......

  • The purpose of the study is to find out more about the underlying causes of asthma, particularly the reasons why some people have environmental allergies and do not have asthma, while other people with environmental allergies develop asthma. In this study you would visit ASTHMA......

  • Could cannabis help us treat HIV? Despite being undetectable, people living with HIV have ongoing inflammation, which is the body’s reaction to infection, a state where some of your immune cells remain constantly activated. As well, HIV damages the lining of your intestines soon after infection.......
