Blood Tests

Patient having a blood test

Blood tests allow researchers to investigate:

  • All the cells in the blood 
  • A persons health status
  • Inflammation processes in the body
  • Allergy
  • Help determine a response to a new treatment
  • Sometimes researchers also want to look at the genetics of a respiratory disease. The researchers are only investigating the genetics of the disease and not the individuals genetics.

  • Biomarkers
