Equine Asthma: Current Understanding and Future Directions

About this Research Topic

The effort to clarify the phenotype and terminology used to characterize horses with chronic inflammatory airway disease started in 2000 with a workshop in East Lansing, Michigan. Several workshops were subsequently held with similar goals in mind with the latest hosted in Cabourg, France in 2014. In the last couple of years, the terminology has further evolved with the term Equine Asthma now being recommended to describe horses with chronic respiratory signs ranging in severity from severe to mild that were previously referred to recurrent airway obstruction and inflammatory airway disease, respectively.

The goal of this Research Topic is to incorporate the latest information from researchers and clinicians from around the world who are actively investigating Equine Asthma. We welcome the submission of original research articles, reviews, methods papers, clinical trials, case series or general commentary related to the central topic of equine asthma with a particular focus on etiology and pathophysiology of the disease. Articles investigating airway inflammation from a “One Health” perspective are also encouraged.

We hope that this new information will help generate potential revisions of the ACVIM consensus statement on inflammatory airway disease in horses and provide future research directions.


Keywords: Airway inflammation, respiratory disease, cough, heaves, performance


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
