Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Daily Subject-reported AM and PM Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) Averaged Over the Two-week Treatment Period. [ Time Frame: Week 0-2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    TNSS is the sum of individual symptoms of runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose, and nasal congestions. Subjects assess each individual symptoms on a scale of 0-3 where:

    0 = absent

    1. = mild
    2. = moderate
    3. = severe Therefore, rTNSS values range from 0-12 (with 0 representing an absence of symptoms and higher scores reflecting more severe symptoms). Reflective TNSS measures these symptoms over the previous 12-hour time interval. Difference was calculated as the two week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement.

  • Initiation of pimecrolimus cream 1% or greater or tacrolimus ointment 0.03% or greater during the study period or planned dose escalation during the study period. However, initiation of these creams/ointments 30 days or more prior to the Visit 1 and use of a stable (maintenance) dose during the study period may be considered for inclusion.
  • Study participation by clinical investigator site employees and/or their immediate relatives.

  • Have any of the following conditions that are judged by the investigator to be clinically significant and/or affect the subject's ability to participate in the clinical trial: impaired hepatic function including alcohol-related liver disease or cirrhosis;

    • history of ocular disturbances e.g. glaucoma or posterior subcapsular cataracts;
    • any systemic infection;
    • hematological, hepatic, renal, endocrine (except for controlled diabetes mellitus or postmenopausal symptoms or hypothyroidism);
    • gastrointestinal disease;
    • malignancy (excluding basal cell carcinoma);
    • current neuropsychological condition with or without drug therapy.
