Abstract

Nasal polyps are strongly associated with a risk of chronic rhinosinusitis development as well as other obstruction including asthma and allergy. The following study tested the association of the 140A/G polymorphism of lactoferine (LF) encoding gene and the -33C/G polymorphism of osteoblast-specific factor-2 (OSF-2) encoding gene with a risk of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps in a Polish population. One hundred ninety five patients of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps as well as 200 sex, age and ethnicity matched control subjects without chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps were enrolled in this study. Among the group of patients 63 subjects were diagnosed with allergy and 65 subjects with asthma, respectively. DNA was isolated from peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients as well as controls and gene polymorphisms were analyzed by restriction fragments length polymorphism polymerase chain reaction (RFLP-PCR). We reported that the 140A/G LF (OR 4.78; 95% CI 3.07-7.24), the -33C/G OSF-2 OR 3.48; 95% CI 2.19-5.52) and the -33G/G OSF-2 (OR 16.45; 95% CI 6.71-40.30) genotypes were associated with an increased risk of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps among analyzed group of patients. Moreover, the group of patients without allergy or asthma indicated the association of the -33C/G (OR 3.72; 95% CI 2.24-6.19 and OR 15.11; 95% CI 5.91-38.6) and -33G/G (OR 3.73; 95% CI 2.24-6.19 and OR 14.07; 95% CI 5.47-36.16) genotypes of the OSF-2 as wells as 140A/G (OR 3.89; 95% CI 2.40-6.31 and OR 3.62; 95% CI 2.45-5.34) genotype of OSF-2 with an increased risk of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. Finally, it was also found that the selected group of patients with allergy or asthma indicated a very strong association of the -33C/G (OR 2.40; 95% CI 1.23-4.69 and OR 2.40; 95% CI 1.23-4.69, respectively) and -33G/G (OR 16.01; 95% CI 5.77-44.41 and OR 17.90; 95% CI 6.53-49.05, respectively) genotypes of the OSF-2 as wells as 140A/G (OR 3.22; 95% CI 1.74-6.11 and OR 3.25; 95% CI 1.75-6.04, respectively) genotypes with an increased risk of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. Thus, our results suggest that LF and OSF-2 gene polymorphisms may have deep impact on the risk of rhinosinusitis nasal polyps' formation which may also depend on asthma or allergy. Our results showed that the 140A/G polymorphism of LF gene and the -33C/G polymorphism of the OSF-2 gene may be associated with the risk of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps in a Polish population.
