Asthma and pneumonia received much attention in clinical research published in 1996. Asthma studies focused on the optimal use of β-adrenergic agents, inhaled steroids, and leukotriene-inhibiting drugs. Studies of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease focused on the mechanisms of benefit from lung volume reduction surgery. Systematic reviews and large population studies provided more insight into community-acquired pneumonia. Finally, carefully developed guidelines for the management of hospital-acquired pneumonia were published.
