Special Issue "Pediatric Asthma"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2020).
Pediatric asthma is a clinically relevant issue and deserves adequate attention. It is well known that asthma is characterized by airway inflammation and bronchial hyperresponsiveness. New evidence is continuously reported in literature, but most of the research papers concern data deriving from big data. Thus, there is the need to implement studies conducted in real life. Moreover, there is the need to have simple tools to measure asthma control and to evaluate emotional aspects in children and adolescents with asthma. Therefore, we invite original research (both clinical and translational) and review articles addressing these controversies. Manuscripts addressing challenges with optimal targets for new theraputical strategies and asthma work-up innovation will be considered. We also invite epidemiological studies and interesting case reports followed by a discussion that includes clinical pearls.
