    We characterized the anti-nflammatory effects of budesonide on the expression of adhesion molecules involving Lewis[sup a] (Le[sup a]) epitope, its sialylated derivative (sLe[sup a]), and their respective binding sites in human nasal polyposis. By computer-assisted microscopy, we quantitatively...

    Interleukin (IL)-17A is a highly inflammatory cytokine and is known to be produced by Th17 cells. The importance of IL-17A expression in nasal epithelial cells is not well understood. The goal of this study is to explore the expression of IL-17A in nasal epithelial cells in vivo and in vitro....

    The authors reflect on the efficiency of combined oral and intranasal corticosteroid therapy in nasal polyposis management. They note that corticosteroids exert anti-inflammatory effect by acting on particular receptors in human cells. They mention studies demonstrating that patients with nasal...

    Because of the importance of galectins for various cellular activities, the influence of the glucocorticoid budesonide on the level of expression of galectins-1 and -3 was investigated in human nasal polyposis. Ten nasal polyps obtained from surgical resection were maintained for 24 hours in the...

  • Decreased expression of VE-cadherin and claudin-5 and increased phosphorylation of VE-cadherin in vascular endothelium in nasal polyps. Yukitatsu, Yoriko; Hata, Masaki; Yamanegi, Koji; Yamada, Naoko; Ohyama, Hideki; Nakasho, Keiji; Kojima, Yusuke; Oka, Hideki; Tsuzuki, Kenzo; Sakagami, Masafumi; Terada, Nobuyuki // Cell & Tissue Research;Jun2013, Vol. 352 Issue 3, p647 

    VE-cadherin and claudin-5 are major components of adherens and tight junctions of vascular endothelial cells and a decrease in their expression and an increase in the tyrosine-phosphorylation of VE-cadherin are associated with an increase in endothelial paracellular permeability. To clarify the...

    Gene therapy has become a focus not only in the study of cancer but also lifestyle-related diseases. In case of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps and aspirin-induced asthma, nasal polyps poorly respond to a local administration of steroid. The Bax and Bcl-2 proteins play important roles...

    Background: Nasal polyps, part of the aspirin triad symptoms, are edematous protrusions arising from the mucosa of the nasal sinuses. Although the causative factors and pathogenesis of the polyps are unknown, the significant effect of human leukocyte antigen-DR (HLA-DR) expression in nasal...

    The aim of our study was to analyze the level of expression of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS)/soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) system in nasal polyps and control nasal mucosae. The study was performed in polyps from 15 patients and nasal mucosae from 11 subjects operated on the...

    Objectives: Recruitment of macrophages is essential to the pathogenesis of nasal polyps (NP), since this disease is inflammation-related. In this study, the effects of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) on the expression of C-C chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2) in fibroblasts derived from nasal...
