The Second Edition of Asthma and COPD: Basic Mechanisms and Clinical Management continues to provide a unique and authoritative comparison of asthma and COPD. Written and edited by the world's leading experts, it continues to be a comprehensive review of the most recent understanding of the basic mechanisms of both conditions, specifically comparing their etiology, pathogenesis, and treatments. Each chapter considers Asthma and COPD in side-by-side contrast and comparison - not in isolation - in the context of mechanism, triggers, assessments, therapies, and clinical management. Presents the latest and most comprehensive understandings of the mechanisms of inflammation in both Asthma and COPD. Most extensive reference to primary literature on both Asthma and COPD in one source. Easy-to-read summaries of the latest advances alongside clear illustrations.
