Airway smooth muscle cells: multifunctional cells in asthma pathogenesis

Symposium
Chairs: H. Meurs (Groningen, Netherlands), P. Borger (Basel, Switzerland)
Aims: The aims of this symposium are to:
- review the role of airway smooth muscle cells in airway hyperresponsiveness, airway remodelling and airway inflammation
- review the different (contractile, proliferative and synthetic) functions of airway smooth muscle cells
- discuss the intrinsic differences of asthmatic airway smooth muscle
- discuss airway smooth muscle-specific targets for treatment.
