Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Tryptase Level From Baseline to Post-antigen Challenge [ Time Frame: After one week of treatment wtih veramyst or placebo ]
    Tryptase levels (mcg/L) were measured from nasal lavages


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total Eye Symptom Scores After Antigen Challenge [ Time Frame: After one week of treatment wtih veramyst or placebo ]
    Watery and itchy eye symptoms will be scored based on the following scale: 0=no symptoms, 1= mild, 2= moderate, 3= severe
