SMi Group Reports: Its 12th annual conference on Asthma & COPD will be held in London on the 11th - 12th April 2016.
Respiratory diseases represent an enormous and increasing healthcare and economic burden across Europe and USA.
Over the last few years, significant improvements in the management of asthma and COPD have been made, owing to new drugs, strategies and to the development of the nonpharmacologic treatment of COPD. Nevertheless, there are still many unmet needs in the treatment of these diseases.
The conference will explore innovative asthma and COPD drug development programmes, directives and procedures which have been put in place to reduce the enormous suffering from lung disease and its high mortality.
