Aztreonam Study

Ok so its been one week since I have been on Aztreonam. I love it! It takes 2 to 3 min to inhale and can I just tell you how great  that is compared to the 45 min that TOBI takes. I feel great it's been hard to tell a difference just because the air quality is bad right now and my asthma has been acting up due to the air but I really think its making a difference. I do PFT's in the beginning of Aug so I guess that will be when we know for sure but I am hoping to blow the same or better then last time so I don't have to go into the joint.

Do I just ask Dr. Liou if I can do this study or how do I get on this study?
