Ragweed is one of the most allergenic species in Canada. One ragweed plant can release over one billion grains of pollen into the air spreading across the country in late summer and early Fall. Itchy red watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing are all too familiar symptoms experienced by ragweed allergy sufferers. If you have a ragweed allergy, contact us to find out how you can get involved in a clinical research study. Compensation for pre-screening is up to $100.
