San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
Diagnostics Research Group, a research clinic in San Antonio, Texas, is pleased to use their research to provide key information for allergy sufferers. The clinic says that the holidays are a great opportunity to purchase gifts that will be beneficial to those with allergies and asthma. Recommended gifts include new bedding, towels, pillows and other textiles that help alleviate the symptoms of dust mite allergies.
About 23 million people in the United States have asthma, and 70% of them have an allergy to an allergen that is known to trigger asthma. Dust mites are the most common triggers in our homes, along with mold, pollen and animal dander. Research has shown that high levels of exposure to dust mites are an important factor in the development of asthma in children and over seven million children have asthma, and many of them are undiagnosed.
Diagnostics Research Group is currently screening persons ages 12 and older who are allergic to dust mites. They are conducting a study for an investigational product to relieve the symptoms of dust mite allergies. Diagnostics Research Group is offering free testing, and, for participants who qualify for the study, free medical care by physicians, study product and compensation for time and travel.
"There are more warning signs that your child might be allergic to dust mites," said Dr. Charles Andrews of Diagnostics Research Group. " In addition to the asthma associated with dust allergy, young persons may also have chronic fatigue, recurrent ear infections and interrupted sleep."
Diagnostic Research Group is owned by local physicians who are board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine and Sleep Medicine. The research facility strives to perform research studies with integrity and competence, follow good clinical practices, offer quality studies to diverse subject populations and invest in the development and maintenance of competencies and productivity by all members of their team. Those interested in participating in the dust mite allergy study should call (210) 692-7157.
