MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Written as a concise clinical reference guide covering the current and future airway disease treatments, this text encompasses:




  •  pathophysiology of respiratory tract diseases

  • the methods of measuring airway and clinical responses

  • the concepts upon which many treatments are used in COPD and asthma conditions

  • the way in which these treatments work, and how new treatments can be discovered and tested in various patient groups

  • state-of-the-art pharmacological and therapeutic approaches in controlling pathophysiological processes in the airways

  • normal and abnormal physiological, biochemical and molecular aspects of the respiratory tract

  • basic mechanisms of inflammatory cell activation and pathophysiology in disease

  • therapeutic ways of controlling inflammation

  • ways of reversing or preventing airflow obstruction, and symptomatic treatments of advanced disease


Emphasizing state-of-the-art pharmacological and therapeutic approaches in controlling pathophysiological processes in the airways, Pharmacology and Therapeutics of Airway Disease reviews normal and abnormal physiological, biochemical and molecular aspects of the respiratory tract.



Covering the basic mechanisms of inflammatory cell activation and pathophysiology in disease, therapeutic ways of controlling inflammation, reversing or preventing airflow obstruction, and symptomatic treatments of advanced disease.
