BACKGROUND Clara cell 10-kDa protein (CC10) is a multifunction protein with anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects; hence we compared the CC10 expression between chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients with and without nasal polyps (NPs), analyzed its association with disease severity and response to surgery, and explored its regulation via cytokines. METHODS The plasma and tissue CC10 levels were compared between controls and CRS patients with and without NPs by means of quantitative… CONTINUE READING
