About the book

Asthma is the most common chronic lower respiratory disease in children worldwide. Asthma usually starts at an early age, progresses differently, and the phenotype is fluid, which may worsen or disappear over time. At the same time, childhood asthma faces additional challenges due to the maturation process of the respiratory and immune systems, the natural history of the wheezing disease, the lack of good evidence-based medical evidence, the difficulty of establishing diagnostic and drug delivery pathways for disease, and the variable and often unpredictable response to treatment. The search is on for better ways to guide the diagnosis and treatment of asthma and even predict its occurrence. Therefore, non-coding RNAs have come into people's vision and play a great role in the occurrence and development of asthma through immune regulation and signal pathways. We have gained a lot of valuable experience in the continuous search for its relationship with asthma, and may even become a new target for the treatment of asthma in the future. So in this book, we will also mention the relationship between non-coding RNAs and asthma in the hope that more people will take notice.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nika Karamatic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
