There are newer type medications that have been used in the last couple of years called biologics. Typically they are an injection that is given once every two weeks and can be self administered. And certainly if a patient doesn't want to, or doesn't really feel comfortable giving themselves the injection, they can have a nurse in their prescriber's office or the prescriber themselves give them the injection once every two weeks. And that's been shown to significantly reduce the burden of polyp and chronic sinusitis in patients with recurrent polyps. Certainly patients with sinusitis and polyps sometimes can be associated with other conditions. And if the underlying auto-immune or chronic inflammatory conditions are well-controlled, similarly, their sinusitis and nasal polyp condition will be better controlled.
