Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change From Baseline Over the Entire Treatment Period in Daily Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Scores (rTNSS) [ Time Frame: Daily; Baseline through End of Study (Week 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TNSS is the sum of symptom scores for rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, and sneezing (each scored on a scale of 0 [none] to 3 [severe]; total possible score of 0 to 12). The rTNSS (performed in the morning [AM] and evening [PM]) was a rating of the severity of symptoms over the previous 12 hours. The daily rTNSS was the average of the AM rTNSS and PM rTNSS assessments. Change from baseline is calculated as the score at the end of study minus the score at baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change From Baseline Over the Entire Treatment Period in Morning (AM), Pre-dose Instantaneous Total Nasal Symptom Score (iTNSS) [ Time Frame: Daily; Baseline through End of Study (Week 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The AM, pre-dose iTNSS is the sum of the 4 individual nasal symptom score assessments for rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, and sneezing performed at the moment immediately prior to taking the daily dose; each symptom is scored on a scale of 0 (none) to 3 (severe). Change from baseline is calculated as the score over the entire treatment period minus the score at baseline. TNSS: Total possible score ranges from 0 to 12.

  • Mean Change From Baseline Over the Entire Treatment Period in Daily Reflective Total Ocular Symptom Scores (rTOSS) [ Time Frame: Daily; Baseline through End of Study (Week 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The TOSS is equal to the sum of the three individual ocular symptom scores for eye itching/burning, eye tearing/watering, and eye redness, where each symptom is scored on a scale of 0 (none) to 3 (severe); total possible score of 0 to 9. Change from baseline is calculated as the score at the end of study minus the score at baseline.

  • Total Nasal Symptoms: Mean Change From Baseline Over the Entire Treatment Period in AM rTNSS [ Time Frame: Daily; Baseline through End of Study (Week 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TNSS = the sum of symptom scores for rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, and sneezing (each scored on a scale of 0 [none] to 3 [severe]; total possible score of 0 to 12). The rTNSS (performed in the morning [AM] and evening [PM]) is a rating of the severity of symptoms over the previous 12 hours. Change from baseline is calculated as the score at the end of study minus the score at baseline.

  • Total Nasal Symptoms: Mean Change From Baseline Over the Entire Treatment Period in PM rTNSS [ Time Frame: Daily; Baseline through End of Study (Week 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TNSS is the sum of symptom scores for rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, and sneezing (each scored on a scale of 0 [none] to 3 [severe]; total possible score of 0 to 12). The rTNSS (performed in the morning [AM] and evening [PM]) is a rating of the severity of symptoms over the previous 12 hours. Change from baseline is calculated as the score at the end of study minus the score at baseline.

  • Total Nasal Symptoms: Mean Percent Change From Baseline Over the Entire Treatment Period in Daily rTNSS and AM, Pre-dose iTNSS [ Time Frame: Daily; Baseline through End of Study (Week 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

To be eligible for entry into the study, females of childbearing potential must commit to the consistent and correct use of an acceptable method of birth control, as defined by the following:

  • Abstinence Females of childbearing potential who are not sexually active must commit to complete abstinence from intercourse for two weeks before exposure to the study drug, throughout the clinical trial, and for a period after the trial to account for elimination of the drug (minimum of six days).
  • Oral contraceptive (either combined estrogen/progestin or progestin only),
  • Injectable progestogen,
  • Implants of levonorgestrel,
  • Percutaneous contraceptive patches,
