Nasal nitric oxide concentration in paranasal sinus inflammatory diseases. (1/317)

In normal upper airways, nitric oxide is generated by the paranasal sinus epithelium and then diffuses into the nasal cavities. This study examined whether or not nasal NO concentration is affected by paranasal sinus inflammatory diseases. The influence of obstruction (nasal polyposis) and/or inflammation (allergy or chronic sinusitis) of the paranasal sinuses on nasal NO concentration was evaluated in nasal allergic (n=7 patients) or nonallergic (n=20) polyposis, nonallergic chronic sinusitis (n=10) and Kartagener's syndrome (n=6) and compared with control subjects (n=42). A score of alteration of the paranasal sinus (number of altered and occluded sinuses) was determined by a computed tomography scan. The nasal NO concentration in nasal nonallergic polyposis (150+/-20 parts per billion (ppb)) was significantly decreased compared with both controls (223+/-6 ppb, p=0.01) and polyposis with allergy (272+/-28 ppb, p<0.0001). In each group, the nasal NO concentration was inversely correlated with the extent of tomodensitometric alteration of the paranasal sinuses. In Kartagener's syndrome, the nasal NO concentration (14+/-2 ppb) was drastically decreased compared with all other groups, despite the presence of open paranasal sinuses. Thus, the nasal NO concentration in patients with nasal polyposis appeared to be dependent on both the allergic status and the degree of obstruction of the paranasal sinuses.  (+info)

DeltaF508 CFTR protein expression in tissues from patients with cystic fibrosis. (2/317)

Heterologous expression of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) provided evidence that the major cystic fibrosis (CF) mutation DeltaF508 leads to defective protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum, which prevents its processing and targeting to the cell surface. In this study, we investigated endogenous CFTR expression in skin biopsies and respiratory and intestinal tissue specimens from DeltaF508 homozygous and non-CF patients, using immunohistochemical and immunoblot analyses with a panel of CFTR antibodies. CFTR expression was detected at the luminal surface of reabsorptive sweat ducts and airway submucosal glands, at the apex of ciliated cells in pseudostratified respiratory epithelia and of isolated cells of the villi of duodenum and jejunum, and within intracellular compartments of intestinal goblet cells. In DeltaF508 homozygous patients, expression of the mutant protein proved to be tissue specific. Whereas DeltaF508 CFTR was undetectable in sweat glands, the expression in the respiratory and intestinal tracts could not be distinguished from the wild-type by signal intensity or localization. The tissue-specific variation of DeltaF508 CFTR expression from null to apparently normal amounts indicates that DeltaF508 CFTR maturation can be modulated and suggests that determinants other than CFTR mislocalization should play a role in DeltaF508 CF respiratory and intestinal disease.  (+info)

Role of allergy in nasal polyps of Thai patients. (3/317)

As distinct from many countries, allergy in Thailand is of the perennial type which may play a role in the formation of nasal polyps. Forty consecutive patients with nasal polyps and 30 normal subjects as control were studied at the Allergy Clinic, Department of Otolaryngology, Pramongkutklao Hospital. A positive clinical history and skin allergy testing are diagnostic criteria for allergy. In the nasal polyps group, these were 28 males and 12 females, aged between 12-65 years, with an average age of 38.5 years. In the control group, there were 18 males and 12 females, aged between 15-53 yeas, with an average age of 34 years. All had received prick skin testing with 6 common aeroallergens. The prick skin test was considered positive when the wheal was > or = 3 mm with surrounding erythema. Twenty-four of 40 patients (60%) with nasal polyps had a positive prick skin test, while 6 in the 30 control cases (20%) had a positive prick skin test. This difference was statistically significant (P = 0.0019), Odd's ratio = 6.0 which means allergic persons were 6 times more prone to have polyps form than normal persons.  (+info)

Glucocorticosteroids inhibit mRNA expression for eotaxin, eotaxin-2, and monocyte-chemotactic protein-4 in human airway inflammation with eosinophilia. (4/317)

How eosinophils are preferentially recruited to inflammatory sites remains elusive, but increasing evidence suggests that chemokines that bind to the CCR3 participate in this process. In this study, we investigated the transcript levels and chemotactic activity of CCR3-binding chemokines in nasal polyps, a disorder often showing prominent eosinophilia. We found that mRNA expression for eotaxin, eotaxin-2, and monocyte-chemotactic protein-4 was significantly increased in nasal polyps compared with turbinate mucosa from the same patients, or histologically normal nasal mucosa from control subjects. Interestingly, the novel CCR3-specific chemokine, eotaxin-2, showed the highest transcript levels. Consistent with these mRNA data, polyp tissue fluid exhibited strong chemotactic activity for eosinophils that was significantly inhibited by a blocking Ab against CCR3. When patients were treated systemically with glucocorticosteroids, the mRNA levels in the polyps were reduced to that found in turbinate mucosa for all chemokines. Together, these findings suggested an important role for CCR3-binding chemokines in eosinophil recruitment to nasal polyps. Such chemokines, therefore, most likely contribute significantly in the pathogenesis of eosinophil-related disorders; and the reduced chemokine expression observed after steroid treatment might reflect, at least in part, how steroids inhibit tissue accumulation of eosinophils.  (+info)

Prevalence of asthma, aspirin intolerance, nasal polyposis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in a population-based study. (5/317)

BACKGROUND: Remarkable overlap exists in symptoms between asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and the symptoms of the patients with mild asthma are often falsely thought to be caused by smoking. The objective of the study was to determine the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed asthma, asthmatic symptoms and doctor-diagnosed COPD in an adult population. The prevalence and relation to asthma of aspirin intolerance, nasal polyposis, allergic rhinitis and smoking habits were also examined. METHODS: Postal questionnaire survey of a population-based random sample (4300) of adult women and men aged 18-65 years served by the Paijat-Hame Central Hospital in southern Finland (a region with 208 000 inhabitants) was performed. RESULTS: The non-response-adjusted prevalence (Drane's linear method) of doctor-diagnosed asthma was 4.4% (95% CI: 3.3-5.5%) and of COPD 3.7% (95% CI: 2.7-4.8%). The prevalence of allergic rhinitis was 37.3% (95% CI: 33.3-41.2%), and of overall aspirin intolerance 5.7% (95% CI: 4.4-7.1%). The observed prevalence of aspirin intolerance causing shortness of breath or attacks of asthma was 1.2% and it was higher in patients with doctor-diagnosed asthma than without (8.8% versus 0.8%, relative risk [RR] = 11.4, P < 0.0001), and higher in those with allergic-like rhinitis than without (2.6% versus 0.3%, RR = 7.7, P < 0.0001). The prevalence of nasal polyposis was 4.3% (95% CI : 2.8-5.8%). CONCLUSIONS: The current prevalence of doctor-diagnosed asthma among adults is 4.4%, and allergic rhinitis, nasal polyposis and aspirin intolerance are associated with an increased risk of asthma. There is also association between aspirin-induced asthma and allergic-like rhinitis.  (+info)

Polyglutamylation and polyglycylation of alpha- and beta-tubulins during in vitro ciliated cell differentiation of human respiratory epithelial cells. (6/317)

Tubulins are the major proteins within centriolar and axonemal structures. In all cell types studied so far, numerous alpha- and beta-tubulin isoforms are generated both by expression of a multigenic family and various post-translational modifications. We have developed a primary culture of human nasal epithelial cells where the ciliated cell differentiation process has been observed and quantified. We have used this system to study several properties concerning polyglutamylation and polyglycylation of tubulin. GT335, a monoclonal antibody directed against glutamylated tubulins, stained the centriole/basal bodies and the axonemes of ciliated cells, and the centrioles of non-ciliated cells. By contrast, axonemal but not centriolar tubulins were polyglycylated. Several polyglutamylated and polyglycylated tubulin isotypes were detected by two-dimensional electrophoresis, using GT335 and a specific monoclonal antibody (TAP952) directed against short polyglycyl chains. Immunoelectron microscopy experiments revealed that polyglycylation only affected axonemal tubulin. Using the same technical approach, polyglutamylation was shown to be an early event in the centriole assembly process, as gold particles were detected in fibrogranular material corresponding to the first cytoplasmic structures involved in centriologenesis. In a functional assay, GT335 and TAP952 had a dose-dependent inhibitory effect on ciliary beat frequency. TAP952 had only a weak effect while GT335 treatment led to a total arrest of beating. These results strongly suggest that in human ciliated epithelial cells, tubulin polyglycylation has only a structural role in cilia axonemes, while polyglutamylation may have a function both in centriole assembly and in cilia activity.  (+info)

PKC signaling in CF/T43 cell line: regulation of NKCC1 by PKC-delta isotype. (7/317)

Cystic fibrosis (CF) airway epithelial cells have a reduced mass of ether-linked diacylglycerols which might alter protein kinase C (PKC)-regulated Cl secretion. PKC regulation of basolateral Na-K-2Cl cotransport (NKCC1) was investigated in CF nasal polyp epithelial cells and a CF/T43 cell line to ascertain whether PKC signaling was altered in CF. NKCC1 was detected as bumetanide-sensitive (86)Rb influx. Methoxamine, a alpha(1)-adrenergic agonist, increased PKC activity in cytosol and a particulate fraction for a prolonged time period, as predicted from previous studies on the generation of diglycerides induced with methoxamine. Short-term stimulation of CF/T43 cells for 40 s promoted a shift in PKC-delta and -zeta to a particulate fraction, increased activity of immune complexes of cytosolic PKC-delta and of particulate PKC-zeta and increased activity of NKCC1. Pretreatment with antisense oligonucleotide to PKC-delta blocked methoxamine-stimulated PKC-delta activity, reduced PKC-delta mass by 61.4%, and prevented methoxamine-stimulated activity of NKCC1. Sense and missense oligonucleotide to PKC-delta and antisense oligonucleotide to PKC-zeta did not alter expression of PKC-delta or the effects of methoxamine. These results demonstrate that PKC-delta-dependent activation of NKCC1 is preserved in CF cells and suggest that regulation of NKCC1 is independent of low ether-linked diglyceride mass.  (+info)

Inflammatory cells as well as epithelial cells in nasal polyps express vascular endothelial growth factor. (8/317)

In nasal polyps (NPs), locally secreted growth factors are involved in the remodelling of the epithelium and extracellular matrix but little is known concerning vessel remodelling. The in situ expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in NPs and control nasal mucosa (CM) were evaluated and in vitro secretion of VEGF from primary human cultures of nasal epithelial cells (HNECs) was quantified. VEGF expression was evaluated in NP (n=14) and CM (n=6) after immunolabelling. In supernatants from HNECs cultured at air/liquid interface, VEGF was quantified by immunoassay, under baseline conditions and after transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) stimulation. In HNEC lysates, VEGF and VEGF messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) were detected using Western blot analysis and reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction respectively. VEGF positivity was more frequent in inflammatory cells in NPs (14 of 14) than in CM (three of six) (p<0.05) and in the epithelium in NPs (six of 14) than in CM (two of six) (nonsignificant). Under baseline conditions, the VEGF concentration in HNEC culture medium increased from day 2 to 4, then decreased and became undetectable. VEGF concentrations increased significantly after TGF-beta1 stimulation. In HNEC lysates, VEGF and VEGF mRNA were detected on days 4 and 14 of culture. It was concluded that vascular endothelial growth factor is intensely expressed in situ in nasal polyps, mainly in inflammatory cells but also in epithelial cells. Human nasal epithelial cells are able to secrete in vitro vascular endothelial growth factor. Transforming growth factor-beta1 upregulates this secretion. This suggests that vascular endothelial growth factor, inducing oedema and angiogenesis, could be involved in the pathogenesis of nasal polyps.  (+info)

Under the term nasal polyps are understood non-cancerous growths in the nose that develop in the nasal passage. They are generally the result of inflammation and irritation. In case the condition aggravates, nasal polyps become larger and block the passage making it hard to breathe.. There are certain sings that can help to recognize nasal polyps. They include headaches and runny or stuffy nose as well as the sensation of pressure in the sinus cavity. Sometimes the condition is complicated by snoring and itchy eyes. In all the cases a person cannot breathe normally.. In case nasal polyps last for more than 12 weeks, the condition is considered chronic. It is characteristic that polyps start growing closer to the beginning of sinuses and then spread within the mucous membranes. In case the sinuses are inflamed, the condition gets worse faster.. Nasal polyps should be treated according to a doctors advice. It is important to diagnose the right reasons for the condition in order to determine the ...
This study was performed to determine whether there was any association between abnormal DNA methylation of a thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) locus and pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). A total of 48 CRS patients with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), 28 CRS patients without nasal polyps (CRSsNP) and 21 control subjects were enrolled into the study; and evaluated for serum total IgE level, olfactory score and nasal resistance. Samples were obtained from nasal polyps of CRSwNP patients, ethmoid mucosae of CRSsNP patients and inferior turbinate (IT) mucosa of control subjects during surgery, and used to isolate purified primary human nasal epithelial cells (HNECs). Genomic DNA was extracted from purified primary HNECs of each subject and DNA methylation ratios for a selected region of the TSLP gene were screened the using MassARRAY EpiTYPER. A total of 17 CpG units were analyzed; of which two CpG units (CpG3 and 22:23:24) had increased methylation ratios in the CRSwNP patients compared to the CRSsNP
Nasal polyp is macroscopic edematous mass and it is a most common nasal complaint of the patients. The exact etiology is still unknown and controversial, but the main causes are assumed to be the inflammatory conditions and allergy. Their clinical presentations are obstruction, rhinorrhea, postnasal drip. Nasal polyp is more common in allergic patients with asthma. Treatment of this complication is associated with both medical treatment and surgery. Corticosteroids (systemic and topical) are shown to be beneficial in reducing the size of nasal polyp. Corticosteroids are also used as a primary treatment and postoperative management for avoiding recurrence. The rate of leukotrienes is increased in polyps. It is reported that leukotriene receptor antagonists (antileukotriene) have a beneficial effect on nasal polyp treatment. Montelukast is an antileukotriene. It can be used to modify the symptoms of nasal polyp. There is no significant difference between corticosteroids and montelukast clinical efficacy.
The conditions and cell sources for colony stimulating activity (CSA) production by nasal polyp epithelial scrapings were examined. Epithelial scrapings removed from patients were grown to confluence during 7 days as monolayers of epithelial cells in media supplemented with fetal calf serum (FCS) on collagen-coated microwell plates. Growth kinetics of nasal polyp epithelial cells (NPECs) were determined, and CSA in NPEC conditioned medium (CM) was assessed with density-gradient separated, nonadherent peripheral blood mononuclear cells in standard 14-day methylcellulose assays. Nasal polyp cultures in the presence of 5% or 15% FCS (vol/vol) demonstrated significantly more epithelial cell proliferation than cultures at 0% and 1% FCS. There were comparable metachromatic cell counts in polyp epithelial scrappings from allergic and nonallergic donors. Similarly, NPEC CM from allergic and nonallergic donors had equivalent CSA for basophil/mast cell (BMC) and eosinophil (EO) lineages, respectively. CSA ...
Nasal polyps can grow anywhere on lining of the nose or the sinuses. They often grow where the sinuses open into the nasal cavity. Small polyps may not cause any problems. Large polyps can block your sinuses or nasal airway.. Nasal polyps are not cancer. They seem to grow due to long-term swelling and irritation in the nose from allergies, asthma, or infection.. No one knows exactly why some people get nasal polyps. If you have any of the following conditions, you may be more likely to get nasal polyps:. ...
BACKGROUND Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a heterogeneous chronic disease characterized by local inflammation of the sinonasal tissues. The pathogenesis of CRS remains controversial, but it has been associated with the accumulation of various immune and inflammatory cells in sinus tissue. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to investigate the expression of the chemokine CCL23, which is known to bind to CCR1 and recruit monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells, in patients with CRS. METHODS We collected nasal tissue from patients with CRS and control subjects. We assayed mRNA for CCL23 by using real-time PCR and measured CCL23 protein by means of ELISA, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence. RESULTS CCL23 mRNA levels were significantly increased in nasal polyps (NPs) from patients with CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP; P | .05) compared with inferior turbinate and uncinate tissue from patients with CRS or control subjects. CCL23 protein levels were also increased in NPs, although

Nasal polyps are noncancerous inflammatory growths found in the nasal passageway and sinuses. Polyps usually grow from the mucous lining of the paranasal sinuses. They are often gray or pearl in color, glistening and small grape-like or finger-like projections. As polyps grow larger, they cause nasal obstruction and blockage of the sinus ostia. Nasal polyps are frequently associated with recurrent sinusitis, asthma and nasal allergies. Chronic sinusitis associated with nasal polyps is often noninfectious and is often called chronic hyperplastic eosinophilic sinusitis.. ...
The mast cell is a crucial effector cell in allergic rhinitis and other inflammatory diseases. During the acute allergic reaction preformed mediators such as histamine, but also de novo produced mediators such as leukotrienes (LTC4/D4/E4) and prostaglandins (PGD2) are released. Mast cells represent targets for therapeutic intervention, and thus a human ex-vivo model to stimulate mast cells taken from mucosal sites would be instrumental for drug intervention studies. We have aimed to activate mast cells within ex-vivo human nasal tissue by IgE/anti-IgE specific (ε chain specific) stimulations and in this respect to test the usability of nasal polyps versus inferior turbinates Biopsy samples were collected from patients with nasal polyps and inferior turbinates from patients who underwent sinus or septal surgery. Tissue fragments were primed with IgE 1 μg/ml for 60 minutes and then stimulated for 30 minutes with tissue culture medium (negative control), anti-IgE 10 μg/ml, anti-IgE 30 μg/ml and
Nasal poyps can be associated with chronic infections, chronic allergies or even tumors. A full evaluation for nasal polyps will usually include a nasal endoscopy (telescope examination of the inside of the nose). A CT scan or even a biopsy of the nasal polyp may be recommended in certain cases.. Not all nasal polyps need to be removed surgically. Many patients can be treated effectively with medications alone, depending on the condition that lead to the formation of the polyps. Antibiotics and oral or topical nasal steroids may be prescribed.. ...

BACKGROUND: To better understand the mechanisms of eosinophil recruitment into the upper airways, we examined human nasal polyps for the expression of the chemotactic cytokine RANTES and the endothelial adhesion molecules E-selectin and vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1).. METHODS: Routine histologic examination and immunostaining with antibodies to RANTES, E-selectin, and VCAM-1 were performed on three types of tissues: nasal polyps, sinus mucosa, or turbinates from patients undergoing other elective procedures (S/T), and nasal biopsy specimens from nonallergic volunteers (NA). To further quantify the expression of endothelial adhesion molecules, some tissue samples were homogenized, and the resulting supernatants were assayed with sandwich ELISAs for VCAM-1 and E-selectin.. RESULTS: Polyp eosinophil counts ranged from 19/mm2 to 1818/mm2 (763 +/- 120/mm2, mean +/- SEM) and were significantly higher than those found in the control tissues (5 +/- 2 in S/T samples and 20 +/- 9 in NA ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Therapeutic Antibodies for Nasal Polyposis Treatment. T2 - Where Are We Headed?. AU - Agarwal, Aarti. AU - Spath, Derek. AU - Sherris, David A.. AU - Kita, Hirohito. AU - Ponikau, Jens U.. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - This review article aims to outline what is known in the pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP) and describe the mechanism of the biologic agents being investigated for this disease. Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis is an inflammatory disease of the nasal and paranasal mucosa, which causes symptoms of nasal obstruction, hyposmia, and rhinorrhea. Conventional therapy for CRSwNP includes intranasal corticosteroids (INCS) and polypectomy, but INCS offer only modest benefits, and recurrence after surgery is common. Therefore, effective pharmacologic therapies for CRSwNP are being actively sought. Monoclonal antibodies have been successful in other chronic diseases involving eosinophilic inflammation, such as chronic ...
Aim To determine the presence of Helicobacter pylori in nasal polyps and the transmission of H. pylori from stomach to nasal polyps. Methods In a prospective, controlled clinical research, 35 subjects with nasal polyps and 30 controls with concha bullosa (CB) were involved, and had been subjected to endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). In the biopsies of removed polyps and CB, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used for detecting the H. pylori DNA. Blood samples of the test and control group were evaluated for H. pylori immunoglobulin (Ig) G and A antibodies by ELISA. The test and control group underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy with taking biopsies from the stomach for PCR detection of H. pylori DNA. Results In blood samples, specific IgG and IgA antibodies to H. pylori were found in 30 (85.71%) of 35 polyp patients and in 16 (53.33%) of 30 controls. In 10 (28.57%) of 35 patients H. pylori DNA was identified in the nasal polyp tissue, but it was not detected in the CB specimens. H. pylori DNA was ...
Thank you. Philip. Sussex. -----------------. Nasal polyps are small growths of inflamed mucus membrane usually occurring in the top of the nose. Apart from causing blockage in the nose, they decrease the sense of taste and smell and make it harder to breathe.. As the small grape-sized polyps make the nasal cavity narrower, mucus forms behind the polyp and cannot drain properly. This may become infected and leads the sufferer to having to breathe through the mouth. This can lead to respiratory complaints such as asthma, hay fever and chronic sinus conditions occurring alongside the polyps.. The cause of nasal polyps. Respiratory allergies are commonly thought to be the cause of polyps, though some research suggests that a chronic viral or bacterial infection of the sinuses may be the cause. One study reported a connection with house dust mite and house dust allergies, particularly in patients under 40.(1) Aspirin can also cause polyps suggested another.(2) However, most evidence pointed to ...
Introductory Statement: Our laboratory has found that patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) have insufficient levels of vitamin D3. This is a proposal to conduct a placebo controlled trial on the use of vitamin D3 (5,000IU/day for 6 weeks) to determine clinical and immunologic outcomes in these patients.. General Investigational Plan: We routinely examine vitamin D levels in all patients with CRSwNP. Those that are insufficient (less than 32 ng/ml) and have agreed to undergo sinus surgery will be randomized to placebo or vitamin D3 supplementation (5,000IU/day) for 6 weeks prior to surgery. Blood will be drawn pre- and post-supplementation to examine systemic immune parameters such as dendritic cell and T cell expression and cytokine levels. Sinus tissue will be collected at the time of surgery to analyze local immune parameters (dendritic cell, T cell and cytokine levels) between supplemented and placebo groups. Clinical outcomes will be analyzed using quality of life ...

Background Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) has shown heterogeneous effects on eosinophilic inflammation in airways. However, little is known about how LPS regulates pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, a major form of eosinophilic inflammation in the upper airway. Objective We sought to investigate the effect of LPS on cytokine production by dispersed nasal polyp cells (DNPCs). Methods Either diclofenac-treated or untreated DNPCs were cultured with or without staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB) in the presence or absence of LPS, after which the levels of IL-5, IL-13, IL-17A and IFN-gamma within the supernatant were measured. The effects of PGE(2) on LPS-induced responses by diclofenac-treated DNPCs were also examined. LPS-induced PGE(2) production and mRNA expression of COX-1, COX-2 and microsomal PGE(2) synthase-1 (m-PGES-1) were measured. Results Staphylococcal enterotoxin B induced IL-5, IL-13, IL-17A and IFN-gamma production by DNPCs. Pre-treatment with LPS prior to SEB ...

N2 - Objectives: The aim of this study is to determine the clinical presentation and pathology of unilateral nasal polyposis (UNP). Study design: Retrospective chart review. Methods: A retrospective analysis was completed on 301 consecutive patients with nasal polyposis that underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery from 1995 to 2004. Of the charts reviewed, 46 patients were identified with UNP. In this group, there were 28 males and 18 females with a mean age at presentation of 34.85 years. Pathologic diagnosis was not available for 2 patients, so there were 44 UNP patient records for analysis. Presenting symptoms, surgical findings, and pathology were analyzed. Results: All 44 patients underwent surgical management for their symptoms, and specimens were sent for pathologic evaluation. There were 17 cases ...
Topical nasal steroid sprays are the mainstream treatment for patients with nasal polyps. Polyps tend to recur after surgery and topical nasal steroid sprays are used as the primary medical management to prevent continued growth. More recently high dose topical nasal steroid sprays are used. It is thought that the higher dose will penetrate the sinus cavities at an increased dose and will allow for greater control of polyp growth. Safety studies have been performed which have shown no suppression of the pituitary axis with long term high dose topical steroid or changes in intraocular pressure. However, studies in efficacy are limited despite their widespread use. The objective of this study will be to compare the effectiveness of two topical nasal steroid sprays in patients with recurrent nasal polyps ...

Basel, August 6, 2020 - Novartis today announced that the European Commission (EC) has approved Xolair (omalizumab) as an add-on therapy with intranasal corticosteroids (INC) for the treatment of adults (18 years and above) with severe chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) for whom therapy with INC does not provide adequate disease control1. Phase III studies have shown that Xolair reduces nasal polyp size (defined by Nasal Polyp Score; NPS) and improves symptoms and quality of life in patients with CRSwNP5. Xolair is the first treatment for CRSwNP specifically targeting and blocking immunoglobulin E (IgE), a key driver in the inflammatory pathway of this disease. People with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps can experience significant quality of life impairment as a result of their symptoms. The symptoms include long-term nasal congestion and blockage, sleep disruption and loss of smell and taste, said Lars Ingemann, Academic Director, EUFOREA*. The EUFOREA* patient ...
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the possible role of tight junction protein Occludin in nasal polyps. METHODS The expression of Claudin-1, Occludin and ZO-1 in nasal polyps (n = 20) and healthy uncinate mucosa (n = 15) were examined using immunohistochemical staining, real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Western blot analysis. The regulatory effects of proinflammatory cytokines (IFN-γ, IL-13, IL-17, TGF-β, TGF-α) on the expression of Occludin in cultured human nasal epithelial cells were investigated. RESULTS The immunohistochemical results showed that Claudin-1, Occludin and ZO-1 were detected both in the nasal polyp group and the control group. The expression sites were the cell membrane and cytoplasm of nasal mucosa epithelial cells. The mean optical density of Claudin-1, Occludin and ZO-1 were 0.187 ± 0.076,0.172 ± 0.109 and 0.098 ± 0.035 respectively in the nasal polyp group and were significantly lower than those in the control group (0.312 ± 0.101, 0.220 ± 0.069 and 0.233

Are you experiencing nasal blockage and difficulty breathing? You could be suffering from nasal polyps! While most are familiar with polyps that occur in the colon, polyps can appear in the stomach, uterus, and nasal cavities. Although they are concerning, nasal polyps are almost always benign. Despite this, individuals with nasal polyps should seek treatment from an otolaryngologist immediately, as they affect ones lifestyle and can bring about infection. Typical symptoms of nasal polyps include stuffy nose, postnasal drainage, nasal obstruction, and decrease or complete loss of smell. Continue reading →. ...
We describe a long-range optical coherence tomography system for size and shape measurement of large hollow organs in the human body. The system employs a frequency-domain optical delay line of a configuration that enables the combination of high-speed operation with long scan range. We compare the achievable maximum delay of several delay line configurations, and identify the configurations with the greatest delay range. We demonstrate the use of one such long-range delay line in a catheter-based optical coherence tomography system and present profiles of the human upper airway and esophagus in vivo with a radial scan range of 26 millimeters. Such quantitative upper airway profiling should prove valuable in investigating the pathophysiology of airway collapse during sleep (obstructive sleep apnea).. ©2003 Optical Society of America.

BACKGROUND: Nasal polyposis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the upper respiratory tract that affects around 2% of the population and almost 67% of patients with aspirin-intolerant asthma. Polyps are rich in mast cells and eosinophils, resulting in high levels of the proinflammatory cysteinyl leukotrienes. OBJECTIVES: To better understand the role of the proinflammatory leukotrienes in nasal polyposis, we asked the following questions: (1) How do nasal polyps produce leukotriene C(4) (LTC(4))? (2) Can LTC(4) feed back in a paracrine way to maintain mast cell activation? (3) Could a combination therapy targeting the elements of this feed-forward loop provide a novel therapy for allergic disease? METHODS: We have used immunohistochemistry, enzyme immunoassay, and cytoplasmic calcium ion (Ca(2+)) imaging to address these questions on cultured and acutely isolated human mast cells from patients with polyposis. RESULTS: Ca(2+) entry through store-operated Ca(2+) release-activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channels
|b|I am suffering with chronic sinusitis and polyps|/b|. I am not able to breathe freely due to the polyps. The sinusitis causes the bacterial or fungal discharge. I got operated for polyp removal once but I was relieved from the blockage for only 2-3 months. I use Ortrivin (Xylometazoline) 0.1% daily 4-5 times, even then I face problem in breathing. I have lost my sense of smell. When the infection is high I resort to Itraconazole 100mg and Ciprofloxacin 500mg with Tenidazole 600mg along with Xylometazoline. I tried all other conventinal methods like ayurveda, homeopathy and others but none was able to relieved me. I even have slight DNS. What can be done to atleast breath uninterruptedly?

Rarely, masses such as nasal polyps and even cancer may cause symptoms of nasal obstruction. As such, an initial important part of any examination investigating a persons nasal obstruction is nasal endoscopy. Nasal endoscopy enables the physician to look into the back half of the nose which is not able to be seen by just looking into the nose with a flashlight. Beyond the examination, an exact description of a persons complaints is helpful to determine what type of treatment whether medical or surgical would be most beneficial. The most common scenarios are described below:. If the patient is a child younger than 5 years old,. I cant breathe through my nose mainly one side.. ...
Over-use of antibiotics and cortisone sprays has led to more virulent forms of bacterial infections as well as new fungal infections of the sinus cavities.

In airways, a proliferative effect is played directly by cholinergic agonists through nicotinic and muscarinic receptors activation. How tumors respond to aberrantly activated cholinergic signalling is a key question in smoking-related cancer. This research was addressed to explore a possible link of cholinergic signalling changes with cancer biology. Fifty-seven paired pieces of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and adjacent non-cancerous tissue (ANCT) were compared for their mRNA levels for ACh-related proteins and ACh-hydrolyzing activity. The measurement in ANCT of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) activities (5.416 ± 0.501 mU/mg protein and 6.350 ± 0.599 mU/mg protein, respectively) demonstrated that upper respiratory tract is capable of controlling the availability of ACh. In HNSCC, AChE and BChE activities dropped to 3.584 ± 0.599 mU/mg protein (p = 0.002) and 3.965 ± 0.423 mU/mg protein (p | 0.001). Moreover, tumours with low AChE activity and high BChE

Background A subgroup of patients with severe asthma have persistent eosinophilic airway inflammation despite treatment with high intensity corticosteroid treatment. One possible explanation for this pattern of disease is involvement of a type 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) dependant and relatively corticosteroid resistant pathway generating type 2 cytokines such as IL-5 and Il-13. The presence of high numbers of ILC2s in the nasal polyps commonly associated with severe eosinophilic asthma supports this view. We have carried out a cross-sectional study testing the hypothesis that ILC2 counts are increased in peripheral blood of patients with severe eosinophilic asthma. ...

There are two major ways that ENT allergy treatment varies from traditional methods: first, the testing is done for quantitative as well as qualitative information about inhalant sensitivities. This allows a patients starting allergy shots to be mixed at the strongest dose possible for each antigen without compromising safety. Because of this, patients usually experience symptom relief faster, and only require one shot per week rather than two. Additionally, patients with lower level skin reactions still can attain significant relief of their symptoms (patients that usually are not offered shots in a traditional allergy setting.) These treatments can also be combined with surgical treatment of obstructing nasal polyps or other anatomic causes of upper respiratory disease.. The second major difference is the testing and treatment of non-IgE mediated food sensitivities. In contrast to anaphylactic shock type reactions, cyclic food allergy (or food intolerance) to commonly ingested foods can cause ...
