    On histopathological examination, nasal polyps and nasal mucosa in allergic rhinitis show different forms of pseudostratified respiratory epithelium, whereas the dominant characteristic of lamina propria is an eosinophilic infiltration. The aim of this study was to compare interleukin (IL)-5 and...

    Background: Although patients with nasal polyposis frequently exhibit concomitant allergy, there is limited information about the impact of allergy on the severity of nasal polyposis. The goal of this study was to evaluate the role of allergy in the severity of nasal polyposis. Methods: Polyp...

    Background: It is considered that allergy, at least in some cases, is associated with nasal polyps and affects recurrence rate. Our purpose was to determine the effects of aeroallergen hypersensitization on therapeutic response of eosinophil- and noneosinophil-dominated inflammation. Methods:...

    Background: Eosinophils are possibly the most important inflammatory cells in the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis. Eosinophilic nasal mucosal infiltration is characteristic of nasal polyposis. The aim of this work was to study the possibility of correlations between...

    Objective: The aim of this study was to outline the histopathological findings of nasal polyposis and to investigate whether these findings were associated with the severity of the disease and co-existing morbidities as well as hematological parameters. Methods: Seventy-seven nasal polyposis (52...

    Objectives: Recent studies on the etiopathogenesis of nasal polyps have shown that smoking and nonallergenic inhalants such as occupational dust exposure cause chronic inflammation of the nasal mucosa. These factors may be associated with nasal polyps. The aim of this study was to use laboratory...

    It is still unknown how eosinophils degranulate in nasal mucus. Currently, cytolysis is being reevaluated as the mode of degranulation of eosinophils in allergic nasal mucosa. To examine whether eosinophils migrating to the nasal mucus degranulate by cytolysis, we sampled nasal mucus from 9...
