Women statistically have more incidence and more severe asthma compared to men. Thus, researchers are interested in comparing how asthmatic female and male cells (monocytes and macrophages) respond differentially to asthma-related stimuli, and how sex hormones participate in this. We are looking for allergic asthmatic females and males age 18-45.
If you are an asthmatic person and would like to donate blood for a compensation of $20, contact the researchers at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call the lab at 410-955-1747.
