Research is a central focus of UTMB’s Division of Allergy and Immunology. Since the creation of the division in the early 1970s, it has been one of the region's premier research-oriented allergy centers. Our research focuses on advancing the understanding of allergic and immunologic disorders, as well as improving measures for diagnosis and treatment. Clinical trials are carried out under strict guidelines with great attention to participant safety.
Individuals choose to participate in clinical research for many reasons. Some like the idea of being able to receive treatment with promising therapies before they are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for widespread commercial use. Others have tried conventional treatments and are in search of a new option. Still others may participate in clinical research in efforts to advance science and medicine.
We currently are conducting studies on hereditary angioedema, ACE inhibitor-induced angioedema, asthma, and immunodeficiencies. New studies are added frequently; call to check with us about our latest research and trials.
