Ongoing studies for which we are recruiting subjects


Here is a brief description of drug studies for which we are recruiting subjects:

1. The 12-month effect of treatment once daily with a corticosteroid nasal spray on the growth velocity of children, 3 to 9 years of age, with perennial allergic rhinitis. This is a me-too study designed to show that an older corticosteroid nasal spray has not effect on growth, just like other nasal corticosteroid sprays have shown.

2. Safety and pharmacokinetics of an antihistamine nasal spray in pediatric patients 2 to <6 years of age who have a history of allergic rhinitis. This study wants to show that this medication is as safe in children as a nasal spray as it is when it is given as a commonly prescribed eye drop.

3. A study of African Americans ages 12 years and older who have been diagnosed with bronchial asthma. Study compares the long-term safety of a combination inhaled anti-inflammatory and long-acting bronchodilator medication with a single inhaled anti-inflammatory product. This study wants to show that this inhaled steroid is safe in African Americans.

4. Suffering from asthma? We are conducting a research study on an investigational use of an FDA-approved medication for asthma. Patients must be at least 18 years old, diagnosed with astma for at least 12 months, and taking inhaled corticosteroids daily.

If you'd like further information, please either e-mail Mandy Kuykendall at or call her at (864) 627-3800 extension 221. Thank you.
