Genetics of Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
edited by Dirkje S. Postma

Genetics of Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease provides an in-depth overview of current thought on the genetics and genomics of asthma and COPD in relation to their pathogenesis and treatment.

Features:

  • Includes chapters on genetic epidemiology, techniques in statistical analysis, and the use of animal models for the study of airway disease genetics
  • Presents the results of recent linkage and association studies and epigenetic and environmental influences, and considers their impact on the future management of asthma and COPD
  • Considers the development of proteomic strategies to possibly detect relevant proteins in disease development and progression
  • Weighs the possibility that both asthma and COPD have common genetic origins and may represent different expressions of a similar disease process
