UC research examines chronic sinusitis
February 26, 2024
According to the National Institutes for Health, chronic sinusitis, also known as chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), affects approximately 14.6% of the United States population and is currently the fifth most common condition treated with antibiotics, accounting for up to 22 million physician visits and costing as much as $5 billion annually.
New research from the University of Cincinnati examines the incidence of people suffering from allergy symptoms who actually have CRS, a finding that could impact how those symptoms are treated.
The research was published in the journal Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.
