Effects of Allergic Rhinitis on the Nasal/Sinus Microbiome

2014-08-27 04:00:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to find out if the bacteria present in the nose or sinuses of people with seasonal allergies changes during their allergy season. Another purpose of this study is to see if the bacteria present in the nose and sinuses of non-allergic people are the same as allergic people before the allergy season and if it changes during the season. Many bacteria are difficult to grow in the laboratory so the investigators are using analysis of DNA (the genetic material in cells) of the bacteria in the nose and sinus to find them. The investigators will be testing DNA of the bacteria only and not of the human subjects taking part in this study. This research is being done to help us understand how allergy affects bacteria in the nose and sinuses.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Allergic rhinitis that occurs at the same time every year. It is characterized by acute CONJUNCTIVITIS with lacrimation and ITCHING, and regarded as an allergic condition triggered by specific ALLERGENS.

Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose similar to that found in hay fever except that symptoms persist throughout the year. The causes are usually air-borne allergens, particularly dusts, feathers, molds, animal fur, etc.

A group of symptoms that are two- to three-fold more common in those who work in large, energy-efficient buildings, associated with an increased frequency of headaches, lethargy, and dry skin. Clinical manifestations include hypersensitivity pneumonitis (ALVEOLITIS, EXTRINSIC ALLERGIC); allergic rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL); ASTHMA; infections, skin eruptions, and mucous membrane irritation syndromes. Current usage tends to be less restrictive with regard to the type of building and delineation of complaints. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A form of non-allergic rhinitis that is characterized by nasal congestion and posterior pharyngeal drainage.

A long-acting, non-sedative antihistaminic used in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis, and chronic idiopathic urticaria. The drug is well tolerated and has no anticholinergic side effects.
