Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Evaluation of Two Novel Breathe Right Nasal Strip Prototypes on Nasal Patency

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in minimum cross sectional area (second restriction) of the nasal valve using acoustic rhinometry [ Time Frame: baseline to within 2 hours post application ]
  • Change from baseline in total nasal volume of the nose using acoustic rhinometry [ Time Frame: baseline to within 2 hours post application ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Nasal airway breathing as measured by Posterior Rhinomanometry [ Time Frame: Baseline to 2 hours ]
  • Nasal airway breathing as measured by Peak Nasal Inspiratory Flow (PNIF) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 2 hours ]
  • Subjective perceptions of airway breathing [ Time Frame: Baseline to 2 hours ]

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: September 2009
Study Completion Date: October 2009
Primary Completion Date: October 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
