In patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), type 2 inflammation and tissue eosinophilia suggest a poor prognosis, including increased postoperative recurrence risk. Recent studies have found that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) can suppress production of the eosinophil chemoattractant eotaxin-3. The authors assessed the role of Th2 mediators in CRSwNP, along with the effects of eotaxtin 3 inhibition using PPIs.
Aspirin desensitization has been associated with benefit in management of aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD). An intervention that would encourage aspirin desensitization to be performed more frequently has substantial potential for improving outcomes and quality of life in patients with AERD.
