Introduction: Atrophy of the olfactory epithelium (OE) associated with impaired olfaction and dry nose represents one of the common phenotypes of human aging. Although age is the most unifying risk factor for atrophic changes and functional decline of the olfactory epithelium, little is known about [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
