Chronic Rhinosinusitis clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Chronic rhinosinusitis is a condition that affects the nose and sinuses, causing congestion and pain. At UCSF, we are currently recruiting for a clinical trial called "Tissue Immune Interaction in Nasal Polyposis." Up to 100 participants will undergo sinus procedures to treat chronic rhinosinusitis and will be asked to participate in a study.
Tissue Immune Interaction in Nasal Polyposis
open to eligible people ages 18-80
This is a cross-sectional study of up to 100 subjects who are undergoing clinically indicated sinus procedures to treat chronic rhinosinusitis. Participants will be asked to donate leftover sino-nasal secretions, sino-nasal tissue and blood as well as undergo partial characterization. As optional extensions of the main study, participants may also undergo a biopsy of extra sino-nasal tissue for additional tissue analysis and/or a more detailed characterization visit performed in the UCSF Airway Center Research Center (ACRC).
