Early Detection of Asthma

About this Research Topic

Asthma has been increasing for several decades and, especially in children, is a great burden for both asthmatics, caregivers and health systems. Although a considerable investment in time and resources has been allocated to better understand the condition, the results are insufficient. Fortunately, most cases can be treated and well controlled, but the natural history -at least at present- cannot be changed.

Thus, there is a need to consider primary and secondary prevention as the best way to lower asthma incidence. In this scenario, prediction and early diagnosis are crucial. This Research Topic will welcome manuscripts which deal with how and to what extent this is currently possible.


Keywords: Asthma, Wheezing, Prediction, Infant
