Sino-nasal Inhalation of NaCl 6,0% in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Chronic Rhinosinusitis

2014-08-27 03:15:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Rhinosinusitis disorders are almost regularly associated to Cystic Fibrosis (CF). The basic defect in CF is a dysfunction of chloride channels in exocrine glands which equally concerns upper airway mucosa. It leard to retention of secretions and consecutive chronic inflammation with bacterial superinfection.

In CF rhinosinusitis can restrict quality of life, give cause to repeated ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery and accelerate disease progression by bacterial akquisition into the airways.

The multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective clinical trial aims at the evaluation of a sino-nasal inhalation of NaCl 6% compared to isotonic saline with respect to ENT-related quality of life which is influenced by mucus retention and the resulting inflammation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.

A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)

A strain of mice widely studied as a model for cystic fibrosis. These mice are generated from embryonic stem cells in which the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator) gene is inactivated by gene targeting. As a result, all mice have one copy of this altered gene in all their tissues. Mice homozygous for the disrupted gene exhibit many features common to young cystic fibrosis patients, including failure to thrive, meconium ileus, and alteration of mucous and serous glands.

Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).

An inherited renal disorder characterized by defective NaCl reabsorption in the convoluted DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE leading to HYPOKALEMIA. In contrast with BARTTER SYNDROME, Gitelman syndrome includes hypomagnesemia and normocalcemic hypocalciuria, and is caused by mutations in the thiazide-sensitive SODIUM-POTASSIUM-CHLORIDE SYMPORTERS.
