  Purpose

Primary hypothesis: Montelukast will decrease bronchial hyperresponsiveness in subjects with persistent allergic rhinitis when compared with those treated with placebo in a double- blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over 5-week randomized trial.

Secondary hypothesis: There will be a significant correlation between allergic rhinitis severity and bronchial hyperresponsiveness severity and baseline lung function measures.

Tertiary hypothesis: Subjects who respond well to montelukast will have particular characteristics of allergic rhinitis when compared with those who do not respond to montelukast.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • dose response slope of Xrs5 [ Time Frame: up to 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Spirometric and IOS value [ Time Frame: up to 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    1. The spirometric secondary outcome measures are changes in PD20_FEV1 or DRS_FEV1.
    2. The impulse oscillometric secondary outcome measures are change in PD80_Xrs5.

Detailed Description:

This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over, multicenter (2 institutes) study with a washout period of at least 1 wk between each study period. Subjects with persistent allergic rhinitis, defined by the recommendations of the Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma (ARIA) guideline, and assessed on historical data, will be recruited. Persistent allergic rhinitis means that the symptoms are present more than 4 days a week and for more than 4 consecutive weeks.

Inclusion criteria will be persistent rhinitis patients (preschool children, 3-6 years), children old enough to cooperate on performing pulmonary function testing, children with no respiratory symptoms 4 weeks prior to the beginning of the study and children without overt asthma or chronic respiratory symptoms. Exclusion criteria will be the following: any prior documented history of asthma or referred asthma symptoms within 1 year, respiratory symptoms including cough, wheezing, dyspnea, or shortness of breath, impaired FEV1 values (such as <80% of the predicted), <0.75 FEV1/FVC ratio, presence of acute or chronic upper respiratory infections, anatomical nasal disorders (ex, nasal polyps, septum deviation, etc.), previous or current specific immunotherapy, use of systemic corticosteroids, or admission or visit of the emergency department during the previous 4 weeks.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   3 Years to 7 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • children diagnosed with persistent rhinitis patients based on the GINA guidelines
  • children old enough to cooperate in performing pulmonary function testing
  • legal guardians who sufficiently listen to the purpose and voluntarily agree with the participation to sign a written consent approved by IRB
  • children with no respiratory symptoms 4 weeks prior to the beginning of the study
  • children without overt asthma or chronic respiratory symptoms.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • any prior documented history of asthma or referred asthma symptoms within 1 year
  • respiratory symptoms suggestive of bronchial asthma, such as chronic cough, wheezing, dyspnea, or shortness of breath
  • impaired FEV1 values (such as < 80% of the predicted), < 0.75 FEV1/FVC ratio
  • presence of acute or chronic upper respiratory infections, anatomical nasal disorders (ex, nasal polyps, septum deviation, etc.), previous or current specific immunotherapy.
  • use of systemic corticosteroids in past 4 weeks.
  • admission or visit of the emergency department in past 4 weeks.
