Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of pediatric respiratory medicine has undergone explosive development in the last decade. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about the development of new vaccine technologies that we hope will be useful in protecting against other important pathogens of common respiratory diseases such as respiratory syncytial virus. In the area of prevention, neonatal screening for cystic fibrosis is also being implemented in a growing number of countries. The biggest breakthroughs have been made in the treatment of cystic fibrosis, with the introduction of chloride channel modulators into clinical practice. New guidelines in the treatment of asthma bring about a paradigm shift from continuous to intermittent therapy with inhaled corticosteroids.

This Special Issue of Children aims to contribute new insights into the prevention, diagnostics and treatment of infectious respiratory diseases, asthma, cystic fibrosis and other chronic respiratory diseases in children. Hence, we enthusiastically invite submissions of both original research and reviews focusing on cutting-edge scientific advancements within these domains.
