First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

COUGH is now 5 years old and has been growing under the Editorship of Dr Rubaiyat Haque and Professor Fan Chung who have established it as a medium for cough work. The first Editorial of COUGH in 2005 entitled COUGH: meeting the needs of a growing field set out its objectives and we believe that COUGH has met the needs of a growing field. For the next 5 years, we will continue the path already laid out with a team of 3 co-editors (Brendan Canning, Fan Chung and Lorcan McGarvey), who will equally share the running of this journal.
