Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the SPHENOID SINUS. Isolated sphenoid sinusitis is uncommon. It usually occurs in conjunction with other paranasal sinusitis.
Ciliary Motility Disorders
Conditions caused by abnormal CILIA movement in the body, usually causing KARTAGENER SYNDROME, chronic respiratory disorders, chronic SINUSITIS, and chronic OTITIS. Abnormal ciliary beating is likely due to defects in any of the 200 plus ciliary proteins, such as missing motor enzyme DYNEIN arms.
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the ETHMOID SINUS. It may present itself as an acute (infectious) or chronic (allergic) condition.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in one or more of the PARANASAL SINUSES.
Chronic sinusitis is a common pediatric disease; it ranks among the top five infectious diseases of the upper respiratory tract. Its treatment is limited and may be due largely in part to...
To determine the efficacy and safety of ONO-1078 in patients with chronic sinusitis in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group, multi-center study
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Amphotericin B suspension versus placebo in the complete resolution of key chronic sinusitis symptoms during 16...
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of SPRC-AB01 versus placebo for treatment of chronic sinusitis in subjects who have had sinus surgery.
The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with the anti-IgE antibody, Xolair (omalizumab), will improve objective and subjective evidence of chronic sinusitis.
Summary This review aims to explore whether 3D imaging offers an added value in diagnosis of odontogenic sinusitis. Odontogenic maxillary sinusitis accounts for approximately 10-12% of maxillary si...
The purpose of this study is to describe the clinical and histopathological features, management and outcome of a series of patients with simultaneous occurrence of invasive and non-invasive fungal si...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: : Nocturnal worsening of respiration in patients with chronic sinusitis is most likely induced by creeping of mucus from the parasinuses down to the pharynx. The aim of this st...
Histoplasma capsulatum has not typically been associated with sinusitis in either immunocompetent or immunocompromised hosts. We report a case of sinusitis caused by H. capsulatum in a patient with ch...
The aim of this study was the determination of bacteria present in maxillary and ethmoid cavities in patients with chronic sinusitis and to correlate these findings with bacteria simultaneously presen...
