Asthma is increasing in frequency and severity. New avenues of research are leading to a greater understanding as to why and how some individuals develop asthma, mounting a powerful inflammatory response to normally harmless antigens. In addition to describing the clinical and pathological aspects of asthma, this book explains the immunological and molecular mechanisms underlying the disease, including the nature of the inflammatory response, the role of individual cell types and mediators, and the genetic basis of this disorder.
