Further study details as provided by PH&T S.p.A.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • demonstrate the therapeutic clinical equivalence of two mometasone nasal sprays in the relief of the signs and symptoms of perennial allergic rhinitis, in term of changes at week 8 from baseline of Total Nasal Symptom Scores (TNSS). [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety monitoring AE, routine laboratory haematology, biochemical tests, urinalysis, assessment of adrenal function to be sure of lack of systemic effect of nasal spray formulation Overall Patient's and Physician's global assessment. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

    Patients at week 8 with a 50% reduction in TNSS mean change from baseline. Symptom-free days. The mean change from baseline to week 8 for mean Total Non Nasal Symptom Scores (TNNSS).

    Use of rescue medication (Time Frame: 8 weeks). Individual patient-rated symptoms evaluation. Clinical Global Improvement (CGI) evaluation.

    Treatment compliance:

    That includes description of the patient's adherence to the optimal prolonged treatment.

Upper respiratory tract infection or any untreated systemic infections within the previous 30 days.

Patients previously treated with mometasone within the previous 30 days Patients who have received anti-allergy immunotherapy (desensitising subjects with increase of allergen challenges) in the previous 2 years or are still receiving this kind of therapy.

Patients with a history of tuberculosis. Patients with glaucoma, cataracts, ocular herpes simplex, conjunctivitis or other eye infection.

The patient has had recent exposure (30 days) or was at risk of being exposed to chicken pox or measles.
