  • Asthma affects 10% of the UK population and is an important cause of morbidity and mortality at all ages. Current treatments are either ineffective or carry unacceptable side effects for a number of patients; in consequence, development of new approaches to therapy are important. Ion channels are emerging as attractive therapeutic targets in a variety of non-excitable cells. Ion channels conducting K(+) modulate the activity of several structural and inflammatory cells which play important… CONTINUE READING
