  • General good health and free of any disease or concomitant treatment that could interfere with the interpretation of the study results as determined by the investigator or the sponsor's medical officer
  • Subjects receiving immunotherapy injections (antigen desensitization) must be on a stable maintenance regimen for at least 30 days before the first study visit (adjustments to regimen following a brief period of missed injections do not preclude participation)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • On nasal examination, subjects with superficial nasal mucosal erosion, moderate nasal mucosal erosion, nasal mucosal ulceration, nasal septum perforation
  • Nasal disease(s) likely to affect deposition of intranasal medication, such as acute or chronic sinusitis, rhinitis medicamentosa, clinically significant polyposis or clinically significant nasal structural abnormalities
  • Nasal surgery or sinus surgery within the previous year
  • The use of any investigational drug within 30 days prior to Visit 1. No investigational products are permitted for use during the conduct of this study
  • Presence of any hypersensitivity to azelastine hydrochloride and/or fluticasone propionate or drugs similar to azelastine hydrochloride and/or fluticasone propionate
  • Respiratory tract infections within two weeks prior to Visit 1.
  • Subjects with significant pulmonary disease including asthma. Subjects with intermittent asthma who only require short-acting inhaled bronchodilators (not more often than twice per week) and who do not have nocturnal awakening as a result of asthma are eligible for enrollment
  • Chronic obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (clinical diagnosis)
  • Existence of any surgical or medical condition, which in the opinion of the investigator or sponsor's medical monitor, might significantly alter the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of study drug or that might significantly affect the subject's ability to complete this trial
  • Clinically relevant abnormal physical findings or laboratory results which, in the opinion of the investigator, would interfere with the objectives of the study or that may preclude compliance with the study procedures
  • Family members of research center or private practice personnel who are directly involved in this study are excluded
  • Members of the same family cannot enroll in the study at the same time.
  • Subjects who have used medications or therapies that could interfere with safety evaluations (see Sections 4.0 and 5.0) and have not had the proper washouts from these medications or therapies
  • Any behavioral condition which could affect subject's ability to accurately report symptoms to the caregiver such as developmental delay, attention deficit disorder, and autism
  • Positive pregnancy test in female subjects ≥ 9 years of age
  • Females who are pregnant or nursing practicing a medically acceptable method of contraception
  • Subjects who fail to complete the symptom diary during the lead-in period, defined as missing data for >50% of entries
