European Clinical Respiratory Journal

Description: 

The overall purpose of the European Clinical Respiratory Journal is to be a forum for the presentation of clinical and experimental studies, case reports, expert opinions and reviews within the area of respiratory diseases in children, adults and the elderly.

According to a recent annual report of the World Health Organization (WHO), respiratory disease including lower respiratory infections, COPD and lung cancers accounted for the death of 7 million people worldwide. Presently, several hundreds of millions are suffering of chronic respiratory diseases imposing a large burden on both the society and healthcare.

Apart from genetic factors, the increasing number of patients with respiratory disorders is a direct result of exposure to pollutants and irritants, i.e., environmental factors, which present a major challenge for our immune defense system. Research into the immunology and pathophysiology of the respiratory system will enable us to understand disease mechanisms and provide a broader understanding on how the body combats these diseases.

The following societies are affiliated with the European Clinical Respiratory Journal: Swedish Society of Respiratory Medicine, Danish Society of Respiratory Medicine, Norwegian Respiratory Society and Finnish Respiratory Society.
