With sinus study, Saint Louis University researchers find that harmless members of microbiome spark immune reaction
Date:12/19/2013

the prolonged inflammation are caused by the body's own immune response to harmless microbiota."

For future studies, Aurora is left with another important question to answer. If the immune system is activated in response to commensals, why are only nasal and sinus microbiota and not those in the gut or skin involved?

There is no evidence, for example, that people with CRS also have colitis, another inflammatory condition. It appears that there is some specificity to the reaction to the microbiota in the nasal passages, and future research will explore why the inflammatory reaction appears to be so localized.
