Expression of cyclooxygenase-2 and 5-lipoxygenase in nasal polyps associated with interleukin-4 promoter polymorphism -590.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate expression of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) associated with interleukin (IL)-4 promoter polymorphism -590 in nasal polyp tissues. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING A prospective controlled study. A venous blood sample was taken to determine the genotype in 61 nasal polyp subjects. The C-590T variant was determined by the… (More)
