Dear Runners

I am a PhD student focussing on Exercise Induced Asthma in athletes. I am looking for volunteers with Exercise Induced Asthma or Suspected Exercise Induced Asthma to take part in a study.

The study includes an initial screening visit with a full check-up of your lung function. Depending on your response to the initial tests, you will be invited to come back for two additional visits.  These will take place at Brunel University (West London)

We are looking for recreational or professional athletes, aged18 to 50, who get wheezy or short of breath during or shortly after exercise, and who train at least 4 hours per week.

No prior medical diagnosis of asthma is required to volunteer for the study.

The tests will tell us if you present ongoing airway inflammation that deserves medical attention. You will be provided with a report of your tests results at the end of the study.

If you would like the full participant information detailsplease e-mail me at Andrew.Simpson@brunel.ac.uk

Best wishes
Andy
