Chronic Rhinosinusitis clinical trials at University of California Health
2 research studies open to eligible people
Impact of Sinus Surgery on Individuals With Cystic Fibrosis
open to eligible people ages 18-99
This study will be a prospective, observational study of patients who undergo endoscopic sinus surgery for cystic fibrosis-related chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Individuals who do not undergo surgery but are treated medically for CRS will also be enrolled to serve as a control group. Outcomes analyzed will include pulmonary, quality of life, and others.
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).
Our lead scientists for Chronic Rhinosinusitis research studies include John Fahy, MD, MSc Daniel M Beswick, MD.
