BACKGROUND Chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps (CRSsNP) and with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is characterized by persistent inflammation of sinonasal mucosa. Glucocorticoid-induced leucine zipper (GILZ) is a recently described anti-inflammatory mediator. OBJECTIVE Here we analysed the expression of GILZ in CRSsNP and CRSwNP, its association with response to surgery, and its cytokine-driven expression regulation in the upper airways. Methods The messenger RNA (mRNA) and protein expression of… CONTINUE READING
