Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to see whether ASP-1001 when given as a nasal spray is safe and can reduce the signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hayfever) following nasal challenge with antigen.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Allergic Rhinitis Drug: ASP-1001 nasal spray Drug: Placebo for ASP-1001 Phase 2 Phase 3

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 20 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Cross-Over Trial of Topical ASP-1001 (Contrast Media Formulation) in the Prevention of the Signs and Symptoms of the Acute Response to Nasal Allergen Challenge (NAC)
Study Start Date : January 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2010
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 1
Topical ASP-1001
Drug: ASP-1001 nasal spray
2 sprays (total 200 microliters) in each nostril 20 minutes before allergen challenge.

Placebo Comparator: 2
Placebo for Topical ASP-1001
Drug: Placebo for ASP-1001
2 sprays (total 200 microliters) in each nostril 20 minutes before allergen challenge.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Sneezing Symptom [ Time Frame: 10 minutes after diluent challenge and 10 minutes after each antigen challenge ]
    Sneezes. The change is calculated by adding the number of sneezes following both antigen challenges minus twice the number of sneezes after the diluent challenge.

  2. Change in Runny Nose Symptom [ Time Frame: 10 minutes after diluent challenge and 10 minutes after each antigen challenge ]
    The nasal symptoms on a scale of 0-3 (0=no symptoms, 1=mild, 2= moderate, 3= severe). The change is calculated by adding the score of runny nose following both antigen challenges minus twice the score of runny nose after the diluent challenge.

  3. Change in Stuffy Nose Symptom [ Time Frame: 10 minutes after diluent challenge and 10 minutes after each antigen challenge ]
    The nasal symptoms on a scale of 0-3 (0=no symptoms, 1=mild, 2= moderate, 3= severe). The change is calculated by adding the score of stuffy nose following both antigen challenges minus twice the score of stuffy nose after the diluent challenge.

  4. Change in Itching Symptom [ Time Frame: 10 minutes after diluent challenge and 10 minutes after each antigen challenge ]
    The nasal symptoms on a scale of 0-3 (0=no symptoms, 1=mild, 2= moderate, 3= severe). The change is calculated by adding the score of itchy nose following both antigen challenges minus twice the score of itchy nose after the diluent challenge.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Nasal Peak Inspiratory Flow Measurements [ Time Frame: 15 minutes after diluent challenge and 15 minutes after each antigen challenge ]
    The value of nasal peak inspiratory flow. The change is calculated by adding the values of nasal peak inspiratory flow following both antigen challenges minus twice the value of nasal peak inspiratory flow after the diluent challenge.

  2. Change in Nasal Peak Inspiratory Flow Measurements From Before to After Treatment [ Time Frame: 15 minutes prior to treatment and 15 minutes post antigen challenges ]
