Asthma
In the United States, about 10% of the population has asthma. The prevalence of asthma is increasing at a rate of 1-1/2% per year. Asthma is chronic disease, usually requiring maintenance medication. Flare-ups can be initiated by several different types of situations. Chronic asthmatics tend not to take their disease very seriously. However, 1 out of every 10 asthmatics will die due to their disease. Good maintenance techniques are the key to good health.

Do you require a maintenance inhaler for your asthma? Have you been treated with a steroid in the last 12 months due to your asthma getting out of control? If the answer to these two questions are yes, please contact our research coordinator for more information.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhea are all typical symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Although IBS is not dangerous, the symptoms can be very painful and bothersome. Most people who have IBS have a mild form. But, if you have diarrhea predominant IBS, the symptoms can be so strong that they significantly limit people’s daily activities and can cause chronic distress.

Had you been diagnosed with IBS? Do you have diarrhea more than 25% of the time? Do you have in abdominal discomfort relieved by a bowel movement or associated with changes in your stools. These are some of the criteria for this trial. If you are interested, please contact our research coordinator for more information.

Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of arthritis. It is a joint disease that mostly affects cartilage. In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows bones under the cartilage to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Over time, bits of bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space, which causes more pain and damage.

This trial is looking for patients with osteoarthritis who have increased risk for heart disease. This would include things such as a history of diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol. Other risk factors like age, obesity, or blood vessel diseases such as peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease or history of stroke may help you qualify for this study.

If you are interested in this study please contact our research coordinator.
