About this Book

In this book, leading researchers in medicine and molecular pharmacology explain the cellular mechanisms that control airway smooth muscle. The means by which these are disrupted in disease, and the pharmacologic strategies by which they may be modified are discussed and future therapeutic interventions are identified.

 

Aimed at specialists in pulmonology, this volume provides the clinician with the most up to date information on one of the core physiological processes in airway disease, and offers insights into current and future approaches to management.

 

  • Authoritative update on key mechanisms of airway constriction in Asthma and COPD
  • Relates latest research to bronchodilator therapy
  • Multi-contributed text, co-coordinated by two of the leading authorities in the field.
