ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00279916
First received: January 18, 2006
Last updated: July 20, 2011
Last verified: July 2011
  Purpose

We hypothesize that intranasal steroid application will have a beneficial therapeutic effect in adults with regard to resolution of SOM and/or NMEP as compared to placebo. We further hypothesize that the rate of spontaneous short-term resolution of OME in adults treated with placebo will be relatively low (minority of patients).
