Trial of Roflumilast in Asthma Management (TRIM)

Clinical Trials

Institution: Nationwide

Type: Multi-Center Trial


The American Lung Association Airways Clinical Research Center (ACRC) network is evaluating measurements of asthma symptoms and its impact on quality of life for people with who have a BMI of 30 or more. This population tends to have poor asthma control that does not respond well to usual asthma treatments.

Dates: May 1, 2017 - April 30, 2020

Disease: Asthma

The Trial of Roflumilast in Asthma Management (TRIM) is testing to see whether roflumilast is safe and tolerable to use for asthma control. TRIM is a 6-month study with seven clinic visits involving breathing tests, questionnaires, and two blood draws. Participants will also be asked to fill out daily asthma diary cards.

Men and women age 18 or older with poorly controlled asthma and an elevated BMI are eligible to enroll in TRIM at five ALA ACRC clinical centers: Duke Asthma Allergy Airway Center (North Carolina), Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute (New York), Northwestern Airways Disease Center (Illinois), Airways Disease Center the University of Arizona (Arizona), and the Vermont Lung Center (Vermont).
