Asthmatic participants (preferably male) with allergies needed for blood draw study

Women statistically have more incidence and more severe asthma compared to men. Thus, we are interested in comparing how male and female cells (monocytes and macrophages) respond differentially to asthma-related stimuli, and how sex hormones participate in this process.

If you have allergy-induced asthma, are between the ages of 18 and 45, and would like to donate blood for a compensation of $30, contact the researchers at either or You may also call the lab at 410-955-1747.
