UNLABELLED Nasal polyps in adults are characterized by a chronic inflammation of the upper airways and by the preferential activation of Th2 cells. In contrast, IL-17 producing Th17 cells dominate the inflammation in nasal polyps of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. METHOD IL-17A, IL-5, IL-6, IL-8, IL-1β, ECP, MCP-1 and myeloperoxidase expression was(More)

Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS), a chronic upper airway inflammation, is an inflammation of the nose and the paranasal cavities and is highly prevalent. Chronic rhinosinusitis is currently classified as CRS with nasal polyps or CRS without nasal polyps. This review highlights the pathophysiological differences in CRS on remodeling and on T-cell patterns. Nasal(More)
Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) is characterized by the growth of fungi, mostly Aspergillus sp., in the paranasal sinuses together with the formation of nasal polyps, peanut-butter like “allergic mucin” with fungal hyphae and typical CT-findings, as well as increased serum total IgE and Aspergillus-specific IgE concentrations. We here hypothesize that(More)
