Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Nasal Peak Inspiratory Flow (NPIF) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 26 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    NPIF was measured objectively in liters per minute with an In-Check Peak & Inspiratory Flow Meter (Ferraris Medical Inc, Orchard Park, NY). Subjects obtained 3 readings every morning and every evening and the greatest of the 3 measures were recorded. Total daily NPIF was calculated by adding the morning and evening values each day and the average of the change from baseline in NPIF for all days of was calculated
