Our Research Division (Southern California Research) has been participating in FDA regulated research studies for almost 30 years. In fact, most medications currently available for either allergy conditions or asthma were at one point studied in our center.

Our research center is dedicated to the research, development and progress of new therapies for a number of different disorders that will improve the quality of life for patients. We are continually enrolling patients of all ages in research studies. At this time we are conducting trials for adult and pediatric patients with allergies, asthma, or chronic hives. We may have a study that is right for you!

For more information about research, review below to find answers to common questions about research or fill out an online interest form and we will follow up with you.

Information on Clinical Research Studies
What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a research study designed to study the effectiveness and use of a drug or medical device in a select group of patients with a specific condition. These drugs or devices that are being tested have been extensively studied in laboratories before they are ever tested on people.

Once a drug or medical device enters the clinical trial phase, it must go through three phases of testing on specific patient groups before the drug or device can be approved for more wide-spread use. Research studies are important because they help the medical community improve and develop new treatments for improved quality of life for patients.


Why would I want to participate in a clinical trial?

  • There are a number of reasons to participate:
  • The treatment being tested may improve your health
  • You are helping others with conditions just like yours by allowing your condition to be studied
  • Only through clinical trials can new therapies become available on the market
  • Study medications, procedures and doctor visits are provided by the sponsor of the study, at no cost to you


What about work and school?

We offer extended hours to meet your busy schedule. If you are interested in participating in a trial, please let us know how we can work with you.

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t do anything that I wanted to do, let alone go out and do anything athletic with my children or for myself. Then I met Dr Berger. He changed my life – he put in the time, the effort and the extra research to get me the diagnosis and the correct medications that changed my life forever!... - Linda

  • When I first got diagnosed with asthma it started off as exercised induced but throughout the years it became worse than that. Just a wind would make me feel like I needed to take my inhaler, a change in the weather and I had to take a breathing treatment. It was really hard especially for being an athlete, because you don’t want anything holding you back from what you love to do...
