Anterior rhinoscopy and middle meatal culture in acute rhinosinusitis.
Seventeen patients had a bacterial infection as verified by a positive culture from the maxillary antrum. Middle meatal samples had a similar sensitivity but a better specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value, compared with nasopharyngeal samples, although predictive value...

Morphological assessment of the luminal surface of olfactory epithelium in mice deficient in tissue plasminogen activator following bulbecto...
We noted drastic differences in olfactory epithelium morphology between mice deficient in tissue plasminogen activator and wild-type mice (comparisons were made using findings from a previous study). The microvilli seemed to be normal and olfactory vesicles and receptor neuron dendrites were largely...
