Interested in Participating in SARP?

You will likely qualify for participation in SARP as a severe asthmatic if you:
1.    Have been diagnosed with asthma by a physician
2.    Require high  or continuous doses of asthma medications, such as Advair, Symbicort, prednisone or medrol
3.    Still have asthma symptoms on a regular basis
4.    Have had frequent or severe exacerbations of asthma (requiring prednisone,  ER visits, hospitalizations)
5.    Are not currently smoking and have smoked less than 5-10 years total
6.    Are between the ages of 6 yrs and 75 yrs of age

You may also qualify for participation in SARP as a “comparative” patient with mild asthma.     Similarly, you must be diagnosed with asthma, be between 6 and 75 yrs of age and not be currently smoking or have smoked for more than 5-10 yrs
