Nasal polyps impact an estimated 13 million Americans. In particular, nasal polyps affect 45% of people with adult-onset asthma and approximately 30% of people with chronic rhinosinusitis, in the latter, it is known as chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). The heterogeneity of CRSwNP may explain the recurrence of nasal polyps and the limitations of a “one size fits all” medical and surgical approach for the treatment for CRSwNP. The development of biologics targeting various aspects of chronic inflammation for the treatment of CRSwNP is evolving rapidly. This program discusses the prevalence and underlying pathophysiology of CRSwNP and the clinical trial data on emerging therapeutics options based on their mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety data.
This initiative is intended for otolaryngologists (ENTs) interested in better understanding the role of biologics in reducing inflammation and related symptomatology in ENT disorders, especially nasal polyposis.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the prevalence and underlying pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP)
- Review the emerging biologic targets and treatment options for chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP)
- Evaluate the clinical trial data on emerging therapeutics options for chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) based on their mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety data
