About the collection

Respiratory Research is calling for submissions to our collection on Asthma: Towards a Cure. The collection seeks manuscripts that address cutting-edge science addressing the unmet need to manage and cure asthma. Such manuscripts could include novel biomarkers that predict therapeutic responses to novel or current therapy. Fundamental, translational, and clinical studies are encouraged that can promote the dissemination and implementation of novel approaches to change clinical practice and policy.

  1. Obesity is associated with airway hyperresponsiveness and lung fibrosis, which may reduce the effectiveness of standard asthma treatment in individuals suffering from both conditions. Statins and proprotein co...
