Allergic Asthma Immunopathogenesis: Immunopathology of the Allergic Asthma presents a new glance to the allergic asthma pathophysiology by focusing on the immunopathogenesis and allergo-inflammation mechanisms of asthma and cell signaling pathways that can be used for various research purposes, including the design of anti-asthma treatment and target therapy for scientists and researchers. As asthma is a chronic, complicated airway disease whose mortality and morbidity rates have increased worldwide, some common treatments for asthma cannot control it nor even prevent simple inflammation and relieve shortness of breath. Thus, understanding its molecular pathways and pathophysiology is required in order to better understand the disease.
