Obesity & Asthma: Genetics and Nutrigenetic Response to Omega-3 Fatty Acids (GenOA/NOOA)
Clinical Trial at Nemours Children's Clinic, Jacksonville
What is the study about?
We want to find out if omega-3 fatty acids (from fish oil) reduce the body’s inflammation and improve lung function and asthma symptoms in overweight teens and young adults with asthma.

We are recruiting patients who:

- have asthma with symptoms at least 5 days a week
- take asthma controller medication 5 or more days a week
- have a BMI (Body Mass Index, which is used to indicate if a person is over or under weight) greater than 90%
What is the time commitment?
Participants will require 4 to 5 clinic visits and 6 phone calls to monitor asthma over a 6 month period. Clinic study visits range from 2.5 to 3 hours each.
