Koreck noted that the investigators separated keratinocytes from the nasal lavage
, and saw no differences that might be suggestive of neoplasia.
Effect of nasal lavage
on nasal symptoms and physiology in wood industry workers.
Identification of a new potential airway irritation marker, palate lung nasal epithelial clone protein, in human nasal lavage
fluid with two-dimensional electrophoresis and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight.
was carried out using a method previously described (Noah and Becker 2000) by repetitive spraying of sterile normal saline irrigation solution (4 mL total) into the nostril, followed by voluntary expelling of fluid by the subject into a specimen collection cup.
Other outcomes included nasal lavage
eosinophil count and ECP levels.
After administration of the sensory tests, nasal inflammation and function was evaluated by measurements of nasal airway volume, mucociliary clearance, and inflammatory mediators present in nasal lavage
Nevertheless, ESSAL still involves surgery, which could be avoided if nasal lavage
could alleviate symptoms on its own.
We followed exhaled nitric oxide, nasal NO, lung functions, cytokines [tumor necrosis factor-[alpha] (TNF-[alpha]), interleukin-4 (IL-4), IL-6, and IL-12] and NO in nasal lavage
fluid (NAL) during and after the exposures.
Treatment with aspirin during aspirin desensitization has been reported to lower the level of leukotriene C4 in nasal lavage
fluid of aspirin-sensitive patients.
In the 37 patients treated after inoculation, viral titers and IL-8 concentrations in nasal lavage
fluid were lower than those following placebo, they said (JAMA 281:1797-1804, 1999).
Techniques to study potential health effects include multiple methods to study the impact of pollutants on the respiratory tract, including acoustic thinometry, nasal peak inspiratory flow, nasal scraping, nasal lavage
, olfactory testing, and trigeminal nerve sensory acuity.
