Current Review of Asthma comprises up-to-date information related to the field of asthma diagnosis and treatment. The book has broad appeal, because it features in-depth, concise discussions on concomitant diseases and treatment choices. Examples of some of these chapters include epidemiology, pathology, airway remodeling, and pathophysiology. The 37 contributors are well-known scientists and clinicians from the US and UK. Each chapter establishes an overview of the topic, followed by a detailed analysis of the information at hand, which is supplemented by charts, tables, and graphs. In addition, editor Dr. Michael A. Kaliner contributes his own chapter, entitled "The Pathogenesis of Bronchial Asthma," written from 30 years of experience treating patients with asthma. This book is an invaluable resource to both the primary care physician and the asthma specialist.
