Rheologically active mucus glycoproteins (mucins) were isolated from the middle ear effusions of 282 patients (344 ears) with secretory otitis media. Middle ear mucins from those patients with no other associated pathology were compared biochemically and biophysically with mucins from patients where a specific associated pathology was present. The most striking biochemical variation was total carbohydrate content, which was lowest for mucins derived from purulent secretions in general (30.9… CONTINUE READING
