Asthma remains a serious health concern for millions of people globally. Despite continuing research interest, there have been few advancements that impact clinically on patient care, potentially because asthma has been treated as a homogeneous entity, rather than the heterogeneous condition it is. This book introduces cutting-edge research, which targets specific phenotypes of asthma, highlighting the differences that are present within this disease, and the varying approaches that are utilized to understand it.
