Study for Asthma Patients that are not Adequately Controlled on Current Treatment

What we are studying

This study aims to see whether patients who have certain genetic markers may respond better to a certain treatment. Genetic markers are genes [or DNA] and they are the genetic material contained in all the cells of your body, including blood cells. This genetic material affects such things as your physical features, hair, and eye color. In particular, the study will look at how response to this treatment is influenced by genetic differences in a gene called the interleukin 4 receptor.
