History

Two physicians of Northwest Asthma and Allergy Center (NAAC) founded ASTHMA Inc Clinical Research Center in 1972. Their goal was, and is today, to investigate new treatments in allergy, asthma, and immunology. The research and development divisions of major pharmaceutical companies, the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) support clinical investigations. Today, 13 allergy and immunology board certified physicians, 2 nurse practitioners and a physician assistant are involved in clinical research studies. The physicians are affiliated with the University of Washington School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle, Washington. ASTHMA Inc Clinical Research Center has conducted nearly 500 FDA approved clinical trials.

The Center works directly with the National Institutes of Health / Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
