Researching new approaches to asthma treatment from childhood through adulthood

Asthma is a chronic (long term) lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways, causing wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and coughing. Asthma affects people of all ages, often starting during childhood. In the United States, more than 22 million people are known to have asthma.

AsthmaNet is a nationwide clinical research network created by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in 2009. The purpose of AsthmaNet is to develop and conduct multiple clinical trials that explore new approaches in treating asthma from childhood through adulthood. AsthmaNet studies are being conducted in 13 states:
