Abstract:

The clinical and scientific description of asthma has been undergoing an evolution of continuous revision during the past 10 years. This disorder has been recognized as a complex entity with interplay between genetic, environmental, and allergenic factors resulting in a significant component of inflammation of the airway. Recent directions in therapy differ in taking either the broad-based antagonist or the specific mediator antagonist approach. This review highlights some of the scientific evidence of the operative pathophysiological events and reviews their applicability to the rationale for broad-based combination asthma therapy.
