Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Change From Baseline in Average Daily Subject-reported AM and PM Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Scores (rTNSS) Averaged Weekly Over the First 6 Weeks of the Double-blind Treatment. [ Time Frame: Weeks 0-6 ] [ 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 six week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Average Daily Subject-reported AM and PM Instantaneous Total Nasal Symptom Scores (iTNSS) Averaged Weekly Over the First 6 Weeks of Double-blind Treatment [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -6 ] [ 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, iTNSS values range from 0-12 (with 0 representing an absence of symptoms and higher scores reflecting more severe symptoms). Instantaneous TNSS measures these symptoms over the previous 10 minute time interval. Difference was calculated as the six week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement.

  • Change From Baseline in the Pediatric Rhinoconjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire (PRQLQ) Overall Score at the End of the First 6 Weeks of Double-blind Treatment [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PRQLQ was developed to measure the functional problems (physical, emotional, and social) that are most troublesome to children with rhinoconjunctivitis. The PRQLQ has 23 questions in 5 domains (nose symptoms, eye symptoms, practical problems, activity limitation, and other symptoms). Children recalled how they were during the previous week and responded to each question on a 7-point scale (0 = not bothered to 6 = extremely bothered or 0 = none of the time to 6 = all of the time) for a total possible score of 138. The overall PRQLQ score is the mean of all 23 responses.

  • Change From Baseline in Daily Average Subject-reported AM and PM rTNSS Averaged Weekly Over the 12-week Double-blind Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ 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 twelve week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement

  • Change From Baseline in Daily Average Subject-reported AM and PM iTNSS Averaged Weekly Over the 12-week Double-blind Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ 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, iTNSS values range from 0-12 (with 0 representing an absence of symptoms and higher scores reflecting more severe symptoms). Instantaneous TNSS measures these symptoms over the previous 10 minute time interval. Difference was calculated as the twelve week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement.

  • Change From Baseline in Daily Average Subject-reported AM iTNSS Averaged Over the First 6 Weeks of Double-blind Treatment [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -6 ] [ 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, iTNSS values range from 0-12 (with 0 representing an absence of symptoms and higher scores reflecting more severe symptoms). Instantaneous TNSS measures these symptoms over the previous 10 minute time interval. Difference was calculated as the six week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement.

  • Change From Baseline in Daily PRQLQ Overall Score at the End of the 12-week Double-blind Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PRQLQ was developed to measure the functional problems (physical, emotional, and social) that are most troublesome to children with rhinoconjunctivitis. The PRQLQ has 23 questions in 5 domains (nose symptoms, eye symptoms, practical problems, activity limitation, and other symptoms). Children recalled how they were during the previous week and responded to each question on a 7-point scale (0 = not bothered to 6 = extremely bothered or 0 = none of the time to 6 = all of the time) for a total possible score of 138. The overall PRQLQ score is the mean of all 23 responses.

  • Time to Maximal Effect [Time to >= 90% Maximum Difference From Placebo in LS Means (Days)] [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time to maximal effect is defined as the number of days until the first treatment day on which the estimated difference between active ciclesonide nasal aerosol and placebo is at least 90% of the largest estimated difference.This is based on the analyses of change from baseline in the average of AM and PM reflective TNSS scores for each day. The time to achieve at least 90% of these estimated differences was calculated.

  • Number of Subjects Experiencing AEs, SAEs, and Discontinuations Due to AEs [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of Subjects Experiencing AEs, SAEs, and Discontinuations Due to AEs [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of Subjects Experiencing Nasal AEs, Including Epistaxis, Nasal Ulceration, and Nasal Perforation [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of Subjects Experiencing Nasal AEs, Including Epistaxis, Nasal Ulceration, and Nasal Perforation [ Time Frame: Weeks 0 -12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
