Research Work: CD3+CD4−CD8− mucosal T cells are associated with uncontrolled chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps
Published in: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology

Thanks to the findings of Tanja Soklič Košak, MD, MSc, from the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Cervicofacial Surgery of the University Medical Centre Ljubljana, and her colleagues immunologists from the University Clinic of Respiratory and Allergic Diseases Golnik, patients with severe chronic sinusitis and persistent symptoms will be given adjusted treatment in the future. Her research of subtypes of T lymphocytes in the mucosa of the patients is especially important for establishing various immunological causes of severe sinusitis.

Patients with chronic sinus inflammation are in the centre of our research, and we aim to contribute to personalized medicine especially for patients with the uncontrolled disease and impaired quality of life. The International Medis Awards will help us a lot to continue research and to achieve the patient-tailored medical and surgical treatment soon.
