Montelukast Has no Impact on the Systemic Production of TGFβ-1 in Patients with Nasal Polyposis Associated with Aspirin Intolerance
Objective: To evaluate the effects of the cysteinyl leukotriene (CysLT) receptor antagonist montelukast on the systemic production of TGF-β1 in patients with nasal polyposis, with or without concomitant aspirin intolerance.
Mir-142-3p Regulates Inflammatory Response by Contributing to Increased TNF-α in Chronic Rhinosinusitis With Nasal Polyposis
Objective: Previous studies suggested that microRNAs played an important role in the progression of inflammation and remodeling of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis. However, the abnormal expression of microRNAs and regulation cytokine expression in nasal polyposis are not clear.
The PI3K-Akt-HIF-1α Pathway Reducing Nasal Airway Inflammation and Remodeling in Nasal Polyposis
Objective: Previous studies suggested that hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) plays an important role in the progression of inflammation and remodeling of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis.
Roles of cysteinyl leukotrienes in airway inflammation, smooth muscle function, and remodeling
A new paradigm for asthma pathogenesis is presented in which exaggerated inflammation and remodeling in the airways are a consequence of abnormal injury and repair responses arising from a subject's susceptibility to...
Transforming Growth Factor-β1/Smad Signaling in Glomerulonephritis and Its Association with Progression to Chronic Kidney Disease
We intended to investigate the expression of TGF-β/Smad signaling in glomerulonephritis (GN) and to assess its role as risk factor for progression to chronic kidney disease (CKD).
