Asthma Critical Debates by Sebastian L. Johnston

Asthma is one of the most important diseases affecting our society. It is an extremely common condition that reduces quality of life, and acute exacerbations can be life--threatening. It affects a disproportionate number of children. With the overwhelming volume of research being carried out in this field specialists need a method of keeping up--to--date with current opinion. As with the other a Challengesa books, a Challenges in Asthmaa is aimed at hospital specialists and therefore assumes a certain level of knowledge about the disease. It builds on this by discussing only areas of controversy and uncertainty in both the basic understanding of asthma and its management. An international author list will provide stimulating debate with, and ultimately draw some conclusions from, existing data which will benefit readers in their day--to--day practice.


There is always the potential for periodic short, succinct, up to date summaries of how advances in asthma basic science can be appied to clinical management. This boook is obviously designed to beof this genre. I think it may succeed in this regard if the chapters a brief, authoritative and to the point. Dr C J Corrigan, Imperial College, London An absolutely top of the bill list of authors -- some young, some established, but all highly competent... I have no doubts at all that such a distinguished list of authors will produce a text of the highest standard which the enthusiast will be delighted to read. Dr Martyn Partridge, Whipps Cross Hospital
