Got a call from the allergist research department yesterday. Was told they were looking for kids from 2 - 5 to participate in a research study. They asked if we would allow DS to participate. It was not for PA it was for enviromental allergies and DS fit perfectly bc he has multiple enviromental allergies including dust mites, cats, trees, grass and molds. It was a nasal spray.

I said no. I just did not feel comfortable bc he does have multiple anaphylaxis food allergies and multiple enviromental allergies. I am a little weary of trying new things. Plus he is on other meds.

Just curious as to what you guys would have done?

Not sure.. my DH works for a pharmaceutical company and so I have too much information about clinical trials. I thought about allowing my girls to take part in the other PA trial, but DH said no. After hearing about it at the conference, I have to admit there isn't any way I'd be able to do it.
For a nasal spray.. I'd probably do it. The only way to get indications for pediatric use on these meds is to have it done by a pediatric study. They need kids. It's a tough call.
