    The article discusses the efficacy of nasal decongestants in relieving symptoms. Decongestants result in an improvement in subjective symptoms of nasal congestion and objective nasal airway resistance in common colds. A review of trials compared single doses of oxymetazoline, pseudoephedrine and...

    Background: Translationally Controlled Tumor Protein (TCTP) found in nasal lavage fluids of allergic patients was named IgE-dependent histamine-releasing factor (HRF). Human recombinant HRF (HrHRF) has been recently reported to be much less effective than HRF produced from activated mononuclear...
