Carrageenan Asthma Study
Does your asthma get worse during a cold?
We need adults with asthma to take part in a study of a safe nasal spray containing carrageenan that could help reduce asthma during a cold.
The 16 week study involves:
· Spraying your nose 4 times daily for 10 days during a cold.
· Meeting with researchers 4 times.
· Filling out questionnaires during visits and during a cold.
· Taking peak flow readings during your cold.
· Taking a nasal swab for viruses (optional).
· Having an allergy test (optional).
· $50 grocery voucher for taking part.

We cannot include those with COPD, those who use a nasal spray regularly or those who have a seaweed allergy.
