Asthma: Current Treatments provides physicians with a comprehensive resource that will help them evaluate for themselves the right approach for each of their patients. It will be of also be of interest to other health professionals involved in the care of patients being treated for this condition.

As the incidence of asthma in the adult population continues to increase, and the age of onset in children to decrease, this condition remains a primary concern not only for specialists in respiratory medicine, but also for physicians in many other fields, when dealing with the asthmatic patient. The range of therapeutic agents now available, and the diversity of targets on which they act, presents the doctor with a variety of options for managing the condition. In this volume leading international authorities explain the mechanisms of action of the drugs currently in use, and their clinical applications, singly and in combination.
