4. Would you like to participate in an allergy immunotherapy research study?

We are seeking adults with nasal allergies to undergo a new study of an unusual formula for allergy injections in which many allergens are given at low doses.

The research study involves eighteen visits that will take about 60 minutes each.

You must be between the ages of 18-65 to participate. Being pregnant or recent use of immunotherapy will exclude you from participating.

Participation in this research study is voluntary, however, there is a compensation of $320 for those who choose to participate. For more information, please contact 410-550-8017 or email hoddin1@jhmi.edu.
