Project: Role of Staphylococcus aureus superantigens in the pathogenesis of astma and nasal polyposis in patients with chronic nasal obstruction

project duration
01-OCT-02 – 30-SEP-04
Our preliminary results strongly suggest a pivotal role of Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxins (SAEs) in ariway diseases. The project aims to investigate the role of SAEs in inducing nasal (polyposis) and lower airway chronic disease (asthma and COPD) in children and adults, with special reference to severity of disease, steroid insensitivity and the effect of antibiotic treatment.
