A phase 3 clinical trial seeking to offer new possible treatment for Bronchiectasis

  • Are you aged between 18-85 years old with a diagnosis of Bronchiectasis?
  • In the last year, have you required at least two separate courses of antibiotic treatment for chest infections?

For people with bronchiectasis, the symptoms and problems associated with the disease can have a debilitating impact on their quality of life. This chronic, progressive respiratory disorder can cause persistent coughing and repeated infections.

More people are being diagnosed with the lung condition yet there are limited treatment options available. But there is hope through life-saving clinical trials that are undertaken at the Institute for Respiratory Health.

Our Clinical Trials Unit provide patients access to cutting-edge treatments and new medications unavailable elsewhere, entirely free of charge. Patients also receive specialised care from a team of clinical nurses who have a deep understanding of the patient’s condition and provide personalised advice, care and support.

Our Clinical Trials Unit is currently looking for volunteers to participate in a new treatment for bronchiectasis. If you’ve been diagnosed with bronchiectasis and suffer from a constant cough, you might be eligible to participate.

Why not get in touch? Just, think every medical drug provided by your doctor or pharmacist today underwent a clinical trial. Not only will you be contributing to research that may change your quality of life but you may also save lives for people with the same condition for generations to come.

We are also seeking volunteers for the following lung conditions – asthma, alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, COPD/emphysema, cystic fibrosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

If you have any of these health conditions or know someone who does and wish to participate in a life-changing clinical trial, please register today.
