Brief Summary:
This is a cross-sectional study of up to 100 subjects who are undergoing clinically indicated sinus procedures to treat chronic rhinosinusitis. Participants will be asked to donate leftover sino-nasal secretions, sino-nasal tissue and blood as well as undergo partial characterization. As optional extensions of the main study, participants may also undergo a biopsy of extra sino-nasal tissue for additional tissue analysis and/or a more detailed characterization visit performed in the UCSF Airway Center Research Center (ACRC).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Chronic Rhinosinusitis (Diagnosis) Chronic Rhinosinusitis With Nasal Polyps Asthma Procedure: Sinonasal Debridement Procedure Procedure: Nasal Polyp Removal Procedure: Biopsy

Detailed Description:

This is a cross-sectional study of up to 100 participants who are undergoing clinically indicated sinus procedures to treat chronic rhinosinusitis. 50 participants with CRSwNP and 50 participants with CRS without polyps and no features of atopy will be enrolled in the study. Participants will donate leftover sino-nasal secretions and tissue from their procedures. In addition, participants will be subject to medical record review and research questionnaires.

In many instances, these participants will have multiple procedures over time to treat recurrent disease and this study will allow for them to donate leftover biospecimens as many as 9 times.

Participants may also opt to undergo a turbinate mucosal tissue biopsy during regularly scheduled sinus surgery for additional tissue analysis and/or undergo a more detailed, complete characterization visit performed in the UCSF Airway Center Research Center (ACRC). During the complete characterization, participants will undergo lung function tests, sputum induction and blood collection, in addition to the procedures mentioned above.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
TIP-OB (Office-Based)
Those in TIP-OB will be undergoing regularly scheduled office-based procedures at the otolaryngology clinic at UCSF Mount Zion campus. The investigators will be collecting nasal mucus and blood samples during each of their visits to the clinic, up to 9 times.
Procedure: Sinonasal Debridement Procedure
This is a medical procedure prescribed by the participant's physician that has been deemed necessary for patient care in order to address their chronic rhinosinusitis.

TIP-OR (Operating Room)
Those in TIP-OR will be undergoing regularly scheduled surgeries in the operating room at UCSF Parnassus or Mount Zion campus. The investigators will be collected nasal polyp tissue, nasal mucus if possible, and blood samples during each of their surgeries, up to 9 times. The investigators will also collect inferior turbinate tissue if consented to.
Procedure: Nasal Polyp Removal
This is a surgical procedure prescribed by the participant's physician that has been deemed necessary for patient care in order to address their chronic rhinosinusitis.

Procedure: Biopsy
A biopsy is optional and will remove a sample of inferior turbinate tissue from the nasal passage. It will be performed during a nasal polyp removal surgery already scheduled for patient care.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of ILC2 and tuft cells [ Time Frame: Up to 8 hours ]
    This study enrolls chronic rhinosinusitis patients with and without nasal polyps. Investigators aim to compare the percentage of ILC2 and tuft cells present in nasal tissue and secretions between those who present with nasal polyps and without nasal polyps.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Nasal polyp tissue collected from the nasal passages, inferior turbinate tissue collected form the nasal passages, mucus collected from the nasal passages, induced sputum, and blood.
