[Expression of cell adhesion molecule and nitric oxide synthase in nasal mucosa in allergic rhinitis].

OBJECTIVE To explore the role of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in the pathological mechanism of allergic rhinitis. METHOD Three kinds of CAMs, which are intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), vascular cellular adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and lymphocyte function antigen-1 (LFA-1), as well as three kinds of NOS, which… CONTINUE READING
