... in nasal polyp explants can be regulated by P-gp [ 25 ]. This suggests that P-gp activity may influence the clinical response to steroids in CRS and overexpression may play a role in the development of steroid resistance. This finding raises the possibility that targeting P-gp activity could enhance...
