Research into Rhinosinusitis

Reading time: 1 min

There are three main lines of research into rhinosinusitis:

  • Risk factors associated with the appearance of chronic rhinosinusitis with or without polyps. Researchers are trying to learn more about the personal and environmental factors. Therefore, they are conducting long-term studies in patient populations to better characterise the disease’s evolution.
  • To identify the factors that cause the bacterial infection to persist in certain patients and the possible role of any bacteria that remain dormant.
  • To determine the genetic characteristics that make some individuals more susceptible to the disease than others, so new drugs can be developed to act directly at this level.
