Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global burden of asthma continues to rise, with an estimated 300 million patients worldwide. Scientific evidence indicates that asthma is a heterogenous disorder characterized by chronic airway inflammation that varies over time in symptoms, intensity, and expiratory airflow limitation. Over the last two decades, research has focused on identifying the underlying molecular mechanisms underlying this heterogenity with the goal of personalizing treatment strategies. Despite recent advances in targeted therapies, CDC statistics show that up to 60% of adults with current asthma can be uncontrolled. This Special Issue aims to advance knowledge on clinical and translational advances in asthma, with a focus on identifying endotypes, phenotypes, and treatable traits; novel treatment approaches, including inhalational strategies; targeted therapies; and ethnic and racial differences in response to treatment and treatment challenges. We are soliciting clinical studies, review articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses for this Special Issue.
