Statement of Need

The pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP) is complex, including the pathways of type 2 inflammation. As understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of CRSwNP expands, so does the potential list of targeted biologic therapies that may produce superior outcomes and safety compared to standard therapy. Determining how these agents are best utilized in CRSwNP requires additional research, and until then, many questions remain. Currently, there remains a lack of consensus on the correct timing of these medications, and clinicians require education on contemporary research regarding the use of biologics in CRSwNP.

Please join Dr. Han and Dr. Lee in part 3 of a CMEO Snack series on CRSwNP, as they discuss the pathophysiology of CRSwNP and safety and efficacy data for biologics targeting type 2 inflammation and individualizing treatment.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply efficacy and safety data to treatment decisions for patients with CRSwNP.

Financial Support

This activity is supported by an independent medical education grant from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Sanofi Genzyme.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists specializing in allergy/immunology, and otolaryngology practicing globally
