Additionally the secondary objective of the trial is to evaluate the safety and tolarability of the ALK house dust mite tablet.

This trial is planned to investigate if clinically relevant improvements in rhinitis symptoms and with less use of symptomatic medication can be obtained in subjects with a history of poor didease control despite of use of symptomatic medications.
