  • Details

Asthma: Modern Therapeutic Targets provides physicians with an appreciation of the future directions of treatment and provides clinical pharmacologists and researchers with an up-to-date insight into advances in this exciting field.

The care of an increasing number of adult and child patients with asthma has become a major task for clinicians, and a growing concern for public health physicians and health care administrators. At the same time, and in response to this situation, a considerable effort is being made in basic and clinical research to develop new treatments. This book looks into the future and assesses the possibilities of a number of new therapies for asthma under exploration and development. A group of distinguished international authors examine the potential of new agents working on various targets that are currently under evaluation, including autocoids and their inhibitors, enzyme-inhibitors, sensory nerves and sensory neuropeptides, and receptors in immunology.
