Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This reference presents investigations into the role of respiratory infections in protecting against allergy and asthma development, the activation of airway inflammation and exacerbations of asthma-exploring cellular and molecular mechanisms, as well as factors including genetics, the environment, and allergen exposure.

Book News Annotation:

Looking at the role of respiratory infection in the development of asthma and in its exacerbation once established, 29 chapters are presented by Johnston (respiratory medicine, Imperial College London, UK) and Papadopoulos (head of research in the allergy unit of a pediatric clinic run by the U. of Athens, Greece). They are organized into sections on epidemiology, immunopathology and mechanisms of disease, models of virus infection and virus-induced asthma, clinical aspects, atypical infections and asthma, and treatment.
