Detailed Description:

This study is an open label, single dose, single site, randomized, cross over study that will assess nasal deposition of radioactivity following nasal inhalation of a ciclesonide radiolabeled solution via a novel nasal MDI and of a mometasone furoate monohydrate radiolabeled suspension via an aqueous nasal spray in approximately 10 14 patients with symptomatic allergic rhinitis, aged 18 65 years. In order to ensure that patients will be symptomatic at the time of dosing, participants will be asked to withhold their usual treatments for perennial or seasonal allergic rhinitis, beginning at the Screening Visit until after Study Visit 3.

Each patient will be randomly assigned to one of two treatment sequences. The two treatments in this study are a single dose (one 37 mcg actuation per nostril) of radiolabeled solution of ciclesonide nasal aerosol 74 µg (Regimen A) and a single dose (two 50 mcg actuations per nostril) of a radiolabeled suspension of mometasone aqueous nasal spray 200 µg (Regimen B).

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient has give written informed consent and agrees to adhere to concomitant medication withholding periods, prior to participation.

  • Patient has a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18-30 kg/m2, inclusive
  • Patient must be in general good health (defined as the absence of any clinically relevant abnormalities as determined by the Investigator) based on screening physical examination, medical history, and clinical laboratory values (Hematology, Chemistries and Urinalysis).
  • A history of perennial or seasonal allergic rhinitis confirmed on GP report, or clinical diagnosis of perennial or seasonal allergic rhinitis confirmed at screening.
  • A demonstrated sensitivity at the Screening visit, or within the 90 days prior to screening, to at least one allergen known to induce PAR (house dust mite, animal dander, cockroach, and molds) or SAR (grass pollen, tree pollen and weed pollen) using a 3 mm response to a standard skin prick test. The patient's positive allergen test must be consistent with the medical history of PAR/SAR.
  • Must be willing and able to communicate and participate in the whole study.
  • Patients must refrain from taking medication for allergic rhinitis, from Screening until completion of second dosing period.

    1. An oral contraceptive, an intrauterine device (IUD), implantable contraceptive, transdermal or injectable contraceptive for at least 1 month prior to entering the study with continued use throughout the study and for thirty days following study participation.
    2. Barrier method of contraception, eg, condom and/or diaphragm with spermicide while participating in the study.
    3. True abstinence, when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the patient (if the patient is usually not sexually active but becomes active, they with their partner, must use an acceptable method of birth control).

  • Active asthma requiring treatment with inhaled or systemic corticosteroids and/or routine use of beta agonists and any controller drugs (eg, theophylline, leukotriene antagonists, etc.); intermittent use (less than or equal to 3 uses per week) of inhaled short acting beta agonists is acceptable. Use of short acting beta agonists for exercise induced bronchospasm will be allowed.
  • Patient has a history of any chronic respiratory disorder including active or quiescent pulmonary tuberculosis.
  • Patient has a history of adverse reaction or allergy to ciclesonide, mometasone, other corticosteroids, or formulation excipients.
  • Patient has a Screening forced expiratory volume (FEV1) <80% of the predicted value for their age, sex, height and race.
  • Patient has had an upper respiratory tract infection (excluding otitis media) within 14 days of first dosing period, or a lower respiratory tract infection within 3 months of the first study day.
  • Previous participation in an intranasal ciclesonide HFA nasal aerosol study; participation in any investigational drug trial within the 60 days preceding the Screening visit or planned participation in another investigational drug trial at any time during this trial.
  • History of alcohol or drug abuse within 2 years preceding the Screening visit.
  • Study participation by clinical investigator site employees and/or their relatives or by more than one patient from the same household.
  • Have any of the following conditions that are judged by the investigator to be clinically significant and/or affect the patients availability to participate in the clinical trial:

    • impaired hepatic function including alcohol related liver disease or cirrhosis
    • history of ocular disturbances, eg, glaucoma or posterior subcapsular cataracts
    • any systemic infection including a history of a positive test for HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C.
    • 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
    • Any condition that, in the judgment of the investigator, would preclude the patient from completing the protocol with capture of the assessments as written.
    • Regular alcohol consumption in males >21 units per week and females >14 units per week (1 unit = ½ pint beer, 25 mL of 40% spirit or a 125 mL glass of wine)
