  Purpose

The purpose of this research is to find out how a nasal spray (fluticasone furoate), sometimes given to children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), works on certain cells within a child's adenoids. We hypothesize that intranasal steroids lead to an upregulation of T regulatory cells in the adenoid tissues of children with OSAS. This will result in a local reduction in inflammation and edema explaining the improvement in OSAS.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the number of cells positive for IL-10 and FOXP3 on immunohistochemical staining of adenoid tissues [ Time Frame: following adeniodectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • the amount of IL-10 and TGF-alpha secreted by adenoid cells after stimulation [ Time Frame: post adenoidectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • weight of the removed adenoids to be compared between the 2 groups. [ Time Frame: post adenoidectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   2 Years to 12 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age: between 2 and 12 years
  • Polysomnogram results showing AHI >5/hr irrespective of saturations
  • No other significant medical problems except well controlled asthma
  • No chronic medication intake except bronchodilators and leukotriene receptor antagonists
  • No systemic steroids within the past month
  • No intranasal steroids within the past 2 weeks

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with OSAS who are overweight (BMI>95th percentile for age) or who have neurological or craniofacial abnormalities as these tend to have OSAS related to these factors per se.
  • Females of the specified age group who have already had their first period.
