Summary Responding to the growth of research in the field over the past decade, this book brings together leading investigators with expertise in pulmonology, pathology, and developmental biology to clarify the mechanisms that regulate the development of bronchial vascular remodeling in asthma and COPD, as well as explore the pathophysiological processes that may impact the formulation of new therapeutic strategies for these conditions
