Why are we doing this research?
Cincinnati Children’s is conducting a research study, sometimes known as a clinical study, to look at the progression of allergic diseases in kids with atopic dermatitis/eczema.
Who can participate?
Children 1 and 2 years old who have eczema/red, itchy rash may be eligible to participate.
What will happen in the study?
This study involves 5 yearly visits (1 visit per year).
As the parent or guardian, you will be asked to complete a personal and family medical history questionnaire at each study visit. Your child will be asked to complete the following procedures:
- Blood draw
- Saliva collection
- Skin prick allergy test
Parents interested in having their child participate will discuss the study with a member of the study staff prior to participation in the study, in order to address any questions you may have.
What are the bad things that can happen from this research?
Participants may experience mild discomfort from completing the procedures.
