INTRODUCTION

Progress in asthma over the past 20 years has transformed how the condition is treated. We must therefore continue to advance knowledge of asthma evaluating the genetic basis, the pathogenesis and pathophysiology. We will need to continue the quest for total asthma control which may even involve genetic manipulation and development of therapy targeting old and potentially new pathways. The translation of this knowledge into good useful patient management will however fail to have an impact on the target population without transformation of the expectations, attitudes and practices of patients.
