Would You Like to Donate Blood for a Study about Allergies and/or Asthma?

Asthma and allergies are very common health problems. Cells in the blood that are called “inflammatory cells” are involved in the development of asthma and/or allergies, but we do not know exactly how these cells are involved in asthma and/or allergies.

In this research study, we are recruiting volunteers to donate blood samples via a simple blood draw in order to study how these inflammatory cells work in the laboratory.

There may be up to two visits to the University of Washington Medical Center for this study. Those who volunteer in the study may have about 4 tablespoons of blood collected from an arm vein. Compensation of up to $50 and free parking is provided for participation.

Participant Eligibility

Volunteers must be:

1. 18 – 59 years old
2. Diagnosed with asthma, nasal allergies, or hay fever by a physician
3. Have no other major medical problems
