This volume covers the latest advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of asthma. Our understanding of asthma has changed dramatically in recent years, and much of this new information is brought together by internationally recognised authorities. They review in depth the changing concepts of the inflammatory processes in asthma and discuss the implications for research and future therapy of this common chronic disease. Each chapter is extensively referenced and generously illustrated with clear diagrams and photographs and represents the state of the art in this growing area. Many of the advances in our understanding of asthma have originated from a pharmacological approach, and these promising new options for pharmacological intervention are highlighted. This volume will be invaluable for research scientists and clinicians involved in asthma research and will be a major reference resource for chest physicians and those involved in the development of novel pharmaceutical entities.
