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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You may also call the lab at 410-955-1747.
