Introduction

Introduction S2 Thorax 1998;53(Suppl 2):S2 As usual we have selected 12 topics related to articles published during the preceding year in general and respiratory journals which we found to be of particular importance or interest. We then asked an expert in each field to review the specific article (the Introductory Article) and to put it in context within the parent topic. In some cases there were two relevant Introductory Articles for the chosen topic. We invited authors to be as specific or general as they wished, and to be controversial if appropriate. Abstracts of the respective Introductory Articles are reproduced at the beginning of each review for the reader’s convenience. 1997 proved to be an interesting year for respiratory medicine and we had considerable diYculty in making our selection. We sought a good balance of topics, ranging from epidemiology to molecular science, and an international spectrum of opinion. We tried to avoid topics from earlier years so that over a time span of four or five years the Thorax Year-in-Review may be of cumulative value in covering the range of advances in respiratory medicine. It may consequently become a useful resource for continuing medical education and registrar/fellowship training programmes.
