What will be asked of you

During the study, you will be asked to complete questionnaires and we will do some tests to learn about how your lungs function normally and how they function when you breathe in dust mites. Study participation also involves several blood draws, an EKG, a physical exam, and some other tests to learn more about your lungs. Contact the study team for more details.
