Thank you for the response. There are very minimal treatment options as only 6 ent worldwide attempt to treat ens. Treatments are also out of pocket unfortunatley and results tend to be short lived as others have mentioned. It would be great it mayo clinic could conduct a clinical trial or engage in more research as this condition a long with atrophic rhinitis have limited exploration in in regards to treatments and someday cures. It would be groundbreaking if more stem cell or regenerative measures can be undertaken for a community that has no formal trearment protocol to begin with a long with very devastating bodily and autonomic health issues that progressively worsen.

Thank you for reading.
