Linking Complement C3 and B Cells in Nasal Polyposis
Complement C3 activation is higher in nasal polyps. (a) Quantified complement C3b and iC3b protein expression in lysates from nasal polyps (NP) compared to corresponding inferior turbinates (cIT) via reducing Western blotting (,) with four representative patient samples. Means with SEM are shown. . (b) LSAB-staining of C5a neo-antigen in polyp and corresponding inferior turbinate (). Representative images are shown (bar is 200 μm). Staining distribution was scored as negative (-), weak (+), moderate (++), and strong (+++).
