An Atlas of Asthma Summary


An Atlas of Asthma by Ratko Djukanovic

As both an immunological disease and a condition of tissue remodeling, asthma involves a number of inflammatory as well as structural cells that interact in response to stimuli present in the environment. Through numerous well-designed schematics, macro- and microscopic pictures, tables, and research data, this full-color atlas defines the immunologic interplay that leads to airway inflammation in asthma and addresses its prevention and treatment.

Written by some of the most reputable scientists and clinicians in the field, An Atlas of Asthma describes the clinical features of asthma and the complex pathophysiological processes that are believed to underlie it. The book then presents discoveries from studies of asthma genetics as well as the cellular responses that lead to clinical symptoms. Finally, it reviews the currently available treatment options and the problems of disease control, particularly in cases of severe disease.
