The levels of the soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (sICAM-1) and soluble granule membrane protein-140 (sGMP-140) were measured in middle ear effusions (MEEs) of otitis media (OM) with ELISA. MEEs of chronic serous and mucoid OM in children contained significantly higher levels of sICAM-1 and sGMP-140 compared with normal serum. sGMP-140 in acute and chronic OM in children was higher than in adult chronic serous OM, and in acute purulent OM higher chronic serous OM in children… CONTINUE READING
