Mouse Models of Asthma
Mouse models are critical for delineating the mechanisms that underlie asthma pathogenesis and developing new treatments. In this chapter we describe four different asthma models that offer unique benefits and allow investigators to answer distinct research questions. We also describe key surgical procedures that are necessary for assessing experimental asthma.
