There has been a surge in interest in bronchiectasis in recent years, and investigators around the world are now starting to join forces to make substantial progress in the understanding and treatment of this disease.
On these grounds, the 1st World Bronchiectasis Conference, held in Hannover on 7–9 July, 2016, was the first conference focusing solely in bronchiectasis and has provided an internationally leading platform for interactions between experts in this field.
The 1st World Bronchiectasis Conference covered a wide range of topics, including microbiome associated with bronchiectasis, clinical trials of new therapies for bronchiectasis, airway inflammation and anti-inflammatory approaches, the association between bronchiectasis and COPD, nontuberculous mycobacteria in bronchiectasis, and the treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection.
With the aim of putting together a collection of the works presented at the 1st World Bronchiectasis Conference, you are invited to submit articles, reviews or communications presented at this conference.
All submissions for this Special Issue will have the Article Processing Charges waived.
Dr. Eva Polverino, EMBARC Chair.
