Expression and regulation of osteopontin in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps.


BACKGROUND Osteopontin (OPN) has been proposed to be associated with airway inflammation including asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). This study sought to evaluate the expression and regulation of the OPN in CRSwNP patients. METHODS Nasal polyp (NP) tissues and normal tissues were collected from 30 CRSwNP patients and 16 control… (More)
