The MACRO Trial
The MACRO Trial has now closed to recruitment.
The MACRO Trial is a randomised controlled trial (RCT) to produce evidence about the effectiveness and role of medical treatment (long-term antibiotics) and sinus surgery in adults with Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS) both with and without polyps.
The MACRO trial aims to recruit 600 patients from at least 17 sites in the UK and began recruiting patients in Autumn 2018.
If you are a patient suffering from CRS and would like to know more about the MACRO Trial, please visit the Information for Participants page. If you are interested in participating in the MACRO Trial, please contact you GP or ENT specialist. A list of our participating hospitals can be found on the Recruiting Centres page.
Deatils of participating in the trial are provided in our Patient Information Sheet
The MACRO Trial is part of the MACRO Programme, which is made up of experts in sinus disease and breathing disorders, GPs, research experts and patient representatives. The programme is running in three sections of research over 7 years to establish the best treatment pathway for adults with CRS and ensure that this pathway is put into practice by GPs and hospital doctors. This should then make lives better for CRS patients and at the same time reduce ineffective use of healthcare resources within the NHS.
