Abstract

Background: Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is often characterized by local production of polyclonal IgE idiotypes. Although tissue IgE concentrations can be in the range of several thousand kilounits per liter, the regulatory mechanisms by which IgE-mediated inflammation is controlled in patients with nasal polyps are not well understood.
