Rhinitis and asthma commonly coexist and are often regarded as “unified airways disease.” Evidence exists that microRNAs are important in controlling inflammatory processes, but little is known about their role in airway inflammation. The present study evaluated the inflammatory profiles of patients with allergic rhinitis (AR), with and without concomitant asthma, and of patients with nonallergic rhinitis (NAR). 

MicroRNA in Chronic Rhinosinusitis and Allergic Rhinitis

The purpose of this review is to provide an overview on the current understanding of miRNA expression and function in CRS and AR, and to underscore the potential for clinical usage of miRNAs in C RS and AR.

Nasal nitric oxide is dependent on sinus obstruction in allergic rhinitis

The aim of this study was to evaluate the associations between nasal nitric oxide and nasal symptoms, sinus opacification, and markers of allergic inflammation in allergic and in nonallergic rhinitis

Genetics and Epigenetics in Allergic Rhinitis

Genetics and epigenetics of allergic rhinitis, including information regarding functions and significance of previously known and newly-discovered genes, are summarized and directions for future genetic and epigenetic studies of allergic Rhinitis are proposed.

Eosinophil microRNAs Play a Regulatory Role in Allergic Diseases Included in the Atopic March

(1) Background: The atopic march is defined by the increased prevalence of allergic diseases after atopic dermatitis onset. In fact, atopic dermatitis is believed to play an important role in

Role of MicroRNA-155 as a Potential Biomarker for Allergic Rhinitis in Children

MiR-155 expression levels were elevated in the serum of AR children and could be used as a biomarker in AR diagnosis, and no significant correlation was identified between the expression of miR- 155 and that of IL-4.

Altered microRNA Expression Profiles of Extracellular Vesicles in Nasal Mucus From Patients With Allergic Rhinitis

It is demonstrated that vesicle miRNA may be a regulator for the development of AR and involved in B-cell receptor and salivary secretion signaling pathways.

Role of microRNAs in inflammatory upper airway diseases

The knowledge of the current literature about miRNAs in inflammatory chronic upper airways diseases and how this may be exploited in the development of new clinical and therapeutic strategies are highlighted.

Increased Expression of miR-146a in Children With Allergic Rhinitis After Allergen-Specific Immunotherapy

It is suggested that miR-146a and its related biomarkers may be comparably modulated after both SCIT and SLIT, highlighting miR -146a as a potential therapeutic target for the improved management of AR.

MicroRNAs in Allergic Disease

This review aims to bring together some of the recent findings on how miRNAs regulate allergic inflammation with special focus on asthma, atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, and eosinophilic esophagitis.

miRNA profiles change during grass pollen immunotherapy irrespective of clinical outcome.

miRNAs may play a regulatory role in SCIT, leading to tolerance induction, and this study aimed to determine the expression of 48 miRNAs in patients with AR undergoing grass pollen SCIT and investigate relations with clinical outcomes.



Mechanisms and mediators of nasal symptoms in non‐allergic rhinitis

Symptoms of nasal congestion and rhinorrhoea tend to be more prominent and persistent in non‐allergic rhinitic patients compared with allergic rhinitis, and the underlying pathophysiological basis should enable the development of more accurate testing, and better targeted therapeutic options in the future.

The emerging role of microRNAs in asthma

The current understanding of the role of miRNAs in asthma is summarized to both better understand the pathogenesis of this disease and aid in the formulation of more effective therapeutic strategies.

Evidence for an inflammatory pathophysiology in idiopathic rhinitis

This work has shown that persistent idiopathic rhinitis has a Th2 type inflammatory pathology mediated by IgE and mast cells, and the disease is classified as being non‐allergic on the basis of negative serum IgE radioallergosorbent assay (RAST) and skin prick tests.

Important research questions in allergy and related diseases: nonallergic rhinitis: a GA2LEN paper

Characterization of the phenotype, mechanisms and management of NAR represents one of the major unmet needs in allergic and nonallergic diseases and its phenotypes need to be evaluated using appropriate methods to better understand its pathophysiology, diagnosis and management.

Exhaled and nasal NO levels in allergic rhinitis: relation to sensitization, pollen season and bronchial hyperresponsiveness.

Exhaled NO was significantly elevated in allergic rhinitis in the nonpollen season, especially in perennially sensitized subjects, as compared with controls, and increased further in the pollen season, mainly due to a two-fold increase in those with seasonal sensitization.

Microarray Analysis of Differentially Expressed microRNAs in Allergic Rhinitis

It is indicated that many miRNA expressions were altered in AR and differentially expressed miRNAs appear to be involved in the development of AR.

MicroRNA Expression Profiling in Mild Asthmatic Human Airways and Effect of Corticosteroid Therapy

Changes in miRNA expression do not appear to be involved in the development of a mild asthmatic phenotype or in the anti-inflammatory action of the corticosteroid budesonide.

Differences between allergic and nonallergic rhinitis in a large sample of adolescents and adults

Differences between allergic rhinitis (AR) and nonallergic rhINitis (NAR) in a large community‐based sample of Danish adolescents and adults are described.
