What has been accomplished as a result of clinical research at National Jewish Health?

Many medications have been introduced to the marketplace as a direct result of the clinical trial work performed at National Jewish Health. These medications include Advair®, Claritin®, and Xolair® - medications used to treat allergies and asthma.

The Atopic Dermatitis Research Network (ADRN), sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is a consortium of academic medical centers seeking to better understand why people with atopic dermatitis (AD) experience more skin infections.  The consortium is currently conducting clinical research studies that focus on bacterial skin infections associated with AD, particularly Staphylococcus aureus infections.

The Weinberg Clinical Research Unit at National Jewish Health conducts clinical research in the following specialties: asthma, allergies, COPD, emphysema, rheumatoid arthritis, cystic fibrosis, sarcoidosis, bronchiectasis, and sleep disorders. The Weinberg Clinical Research Unit conducted preliminary studies on the safety and efficacy of Advair® and Spiriva®, helping bring these prescription breathing medications to market.

More current research projects include working with people suffering from peanut allergies and evaluating monoclonal antibody therapies for treating allergic asthma. We are also testing new lung cancer screening diagnostics, enrolling for a cat allergy study, and seeking participants who have uncontrolled asthma.

The Carl and Hazel Felt Laboratory for Pulmonary Research conducts trials to advance research in asthma and chronic bronchitis/COPD pathogenesis, including the study of new and current therapies.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded Clinical and Translational Research Center provides support for many investigators studying atopic dermatitis, allergies, asthma, and many other conditions.

There are many other laboratories and researchers at the main campus of National Jewish Health in Denver that conduct research on a variety of pulmonary health conditions.
