Asthma is responsible for considerable global morbidity and health-care costs. Substantial progress was made against key outcomes such as hospital admissions with asthma and mortality in the s and early s, but little improvement has been observed in the past 10 years, despite escalating treatment costs.

The airway walls in asthma are thickened by the remodelling process by between 50 and % of normal and there is lumenal narrowing, which is further compromised by excessive mucus admixed with an inflammatory exudate (Fig. see colour plate section). In cases of fatal asthma, the longer the duration of asthma, the thicker becomes the.
