BrightlingEosinophilic airway inflammation is observed in 30% to 50% of chronic cough sufferers. It is a common feature of asthma and upper airway cough syndrome, and it is required in the diagnosis of nonasthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis. Our understanding of the mechanisms underlying allergic and nonallergic eosinophilic inflammation have evolved tremendously in the last 2 decades, but the cause of this inflammation in any individual is of...

GibsonPeople with chronic cough can experience significant quality-of-life impairment. New concepts based around cough reflex hypersensitivity are leading to improved management strategies and showing promise in relieving the distress from persistent cough. The clinical cough assessment seeks to classify patients on the basis of symptom duration, and to identify and manage exposures and diseases that activate the afferent limb of the cough reflex. Cough hypersensitivity is also a...
