CLEAR Initiative

Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyplosis (CRSwNP) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the nasal mucosa and paranasal sinuses that is associated with significant morbidity and reduced quality of life.

The pathophysiology of CRSwNP is associated with local and systemic inflammation, with ongoing symptoms of nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, and loss of smell. These symptoms result in a significant burden on patients.

As one of the most common medical conditions in the US, CRSwNP has a predominately type 2 inflammatory endotype. It is typically treated with medical management consisting of inhaled corticosteroids, oral corticosteroid bursts, and saline irrigation. Leukotriene antagonists and antibiotics are also used, and if medical management fails, surgical intervention is typically chosen. Additionally, biologics that target type 2 inflammation are now available. These have been or will be approved for use in these patients.

Our CLEAR program is an online tool that aims to provide clinicians and patients with up-to-date information on the presentation, prognosis, pathophysiology, and treatment strategies for individuals with CRSwNP. Our goal is to provide information that empowers clinicians and patients to speak openly about treatment decisions and improve the standard of care for patients with this challenging disease.

Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to explore the Clinician Toolkit and Patient Toolkit links as well as our pages on CME events, a poster portal to create your own poster, links to animated videos, and much more!
