The study team will ask you to call if your child starts to show signs of a cold and bring them in for a “cold” visit. The purpose of these visits is to collect samples soon after his/her cold starts.
Parents or guardians interested in having their child participate will be given a consent form that thoroughly explains all of the details of the study. A member of the study staff will review the consent form with you and will be sure that all of your questions are answered.
Your child may directly benefit by receiving asthma care from an asthma specialist. You will receive information about your child’s breathing and allergen tests, as well as information about taking care of your child’s asthma.
Your child’s asthma and rhinitis may or may not improve while in this study, but he/she will be followed closely during the study.
Overall, the information we learn from this study may lead to study doctors having a better understanding of whether dupilumab helps children to have fewer asthma attacks.
