Molecular Phenotyping of Asthma in Sickle Cell Disease (MoP-ASC)

Clinical Trial at Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Jacksonville

What is the study about?

We want to find out more about asthma in patients with sickle cell disease. People who have both sickle cell disease and asthma go to the hospital more often and have more pain than people with sickle cell disease who do not have asthma.

Who can participate?

We are recruiting African-American patients between the ages of 6 and 21 years who have been diagnosed with:
  • both sickle cell disease and asthma
  • only sickle cell disease
  • only asthma (with and without sickle cell disease trait)

What is involved?

Eligible candidates will be required to provide a urine, saliva, and blood sample.

What is the time commitment?

Participants will require one clinic visit that will last approximately one hour. Sample collection can be coordinated with the clinic visit.

What are the costs of being in this study?

There are no costs involved in the study.

Will I be compensated for my time?

Participants can receive a Wal-Mart gift card valued up to $25 for time and travel for completing all study visits and testing.
