Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change in Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) From Baseline [ Time Frame: 14 days minus baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Responses to patient-completed diaries for reflective Total Nasal Symptom Scores (rTNSS). TNSS is composed of 4 individual assessments, which included runny nose, itchy nose, stuffy nose, and sneezing; each of the 4 assessments were rated using a 4 point scale that ranged in whole units from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). All 4 assessments are then added together for a composite score (TNSS score), the maximum of which could be 12 . Reflective scores were assessed from the hour since the last dose of study medication.

  • Mean Change in Reflective Total Ocular Symptom Scores (rTOSS) From Baseline [ Time Frame: 14 days minus baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Responses to patient-completed diaries for reflective Total Ocular Symptom Scores (rTOSS). TOSS is composed of 3 individual assessments of ocular symptoms (itching/burning, tearing/watering, redness) each of the 3 assessments were rated using a 4 point scale that ranged in whole units from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). All 3 assessments are then added together for a composite score (TOSS score), the maximum of which could be 9 . Reflective scores were assessed from the hour since the last dose of study medication.

  • Mean Change in Instantaneous Total Nasal Symptom Scores (iTNSS) From Baseline [ Time Frame: 14 days minus baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Responses to patient-completed diaries for instantaneous Total Nasal Symptom Scores (iTNSS). TNSS is composed of 4 individual assessments, which included runny nose, itchy nose, stuffy nose, and sneezing; each of the 4 assessments were rated using a 4 point scale that ranged in whole units from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). All 4 assessments are then added together for a composite score (TNSS score), the maximum of which could be 12 . Instantaneous scores were assessed at the time of daily dosing.

  • Mean Change in Instantaneous Total Ocular Symptom Scores (iTOSS) From Baseline [ Time Frame: 14 days minus baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Responses to patient-completed diaries for instantaneous Total Ocular Symptom Scores (iTOSS). TOSS is composed of 3 individual assessments of ocular symptoms (itching/burning, tearing/watering, redness) each of the 3 assessments were rated using a 4 point scale that ranged in whole units from 0 (none) to 3 (severe). All 3 assessments are then added together for a composite score (TOSS score), the maximum of which could be 9 . Instantaneous scores were assessed at the time of daily dosing.
