Lurie Children’s Division of Allergy and Immunology is at the cutting edge of asthma clinical research. We offer our patients with asthma the newest treatments as well as opportunities to be part of studies in hopes to discover more treatments and a cure.
We are currently recruiting patients in numerous asthma studies. Learn more about our current trials:
