The respiratory system continuously supplies oxygen to the bloodstream and charges up our body to perform various functions. Respiratory illness, however, affects the functioning of the lungs and makes breathing difficult. Notably, the incidence of respiratory diseases is increasing at an alarming rate, even in developed countries. Unfortunately, no cure for respiratory diseases is available; however, current therapies hold promise in terms of partially suppressing clinical symptoms.
With the aim of more closely understanding these respiratory diseases, we are pleased to announce a Special Issue of Sinusitis entitled “Asthma, Rhinitis, and Chronic Pulmonary Diseases”. The term chronic pulmonary diseases (CPDs) refers to respiratory complications such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), acute lung injury, infections (such as influenza and pneumonia), and many other breathing problems. In this Special Issue, we invite preclinical studies discussing inflammatory and structural changes of the airways associated with CPDs. Thus, this journal provides a platform to discuss the molecular and cellular factors responsible for developing CPDs to find new ways to prevent or, if possible, cure these diseases. We welcome both original research and review articles. We also encourage authors to consider their negative findings, if any, for publication. Accepted manuscripts will be available on our open-access platform, which will be easily accessible by our readers.
