Though external risk factors are associated with development and/or persistence of CRS, the host mucosal response is also important, as nasal epithelium acts as a physical and immune barrier. Under inflammatory stress, the nasal epithelium can undergo injury, followed by a rapid remodeling response ranging from epithelial hyperplasia, to goblet-cell metaplasia, to denudation, loss of cilia, fibrosis, and basement membrane thickening. Identification of gene expression signatures and molecular pathways in CRS pathogenesis have now begun to contribute significantly to a better understanding of the genetic and molecular alterations underlying CRS development and progression. Genetic studies are especially illuminating when multiple gene variants synergize within a permissive environmental context, and are expected to guide development of more effective therapeutic targets for CRS treatment. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York.||Source Title:||Current Allergy and Asthma Reports||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/109360||ISSN:||15297322||DOI:||10.1007/s11882-012-0328-6|
