Contex: The historic triad of nasal polyposis, asthma and intolerance to aspirin and related chemicals, recently designated as Samter's syndrome, is an inflammatory condition of unknown pathogenesis. This study surveyed the levels of chosen serum eosinophil cationic peptide (ECP), soluble CD200 (SCD200), interleukin (IL)-1 beta, high sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and 25-hydroxyvitamin-D (25(OH)D) in the aspirin-induced asthmatic patients treated with anti-IgE therapy to investigate their roles in the pathogenesis of disease perpetuation and anti-IgE therapy's impact on them.
