Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in Total Nasal Symptom Score (3TNSS) after 120 to 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: 4, 8 and 12 Weeks after vaccination ]
    The 3TNSS is the total of the 3 individual nasal symptom scores for sneezing, nasal discharge and nasal congestion. Baseline is pre-exposure.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 3 Total Nasal Symptom Score (3TNSS) after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    The 3TNSS is the total of the 3 individual nasal symptom scores for sneezing, nasal discharge and nasal congestion.

  2. 4 Total Nasal Symptom Score (4TNSS) after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    The 4TNSS is the total of the 4 individual nasal symptom scores for sneezing, nasal discharge, nasal congestion and itchy nose.

  3. Nasal Symptom Score for sneezing after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Sneezing will be evaluated as nasal symptom.

  4. Nasal Symptom Score for nasal discharge after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Nasal discharge will be evaluated as nasal symptom.

  5. Nasal Symptom Score for nasal congestion after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Nasal congestion will be evaluated as nasal symptom.

  6. Nasal Symptom Score for itchy nose after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Itchy nose will be evaluated as nasal symptom.

  7. Total Eye Symptom Score to 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Total eye symptom score is the total of the 2 individual eye symptom scores for itchy eyes and watery eyes.

  8. Eye Symptom Score for itchy eyes after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Itchy eyes will be evaluated as eye symptom.

  9. Eye Symptom Score for watery eyes after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Watery eyes will be evaluated as eye symptom.

  10. Total Nasal and Eye Symptom Score after 180 minutes in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    This score is the total of the 3TNSS and the total eye symptom score.

  11. Time to the onset of nasal or eye symptoms from the start of pollen exposure in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    The onset time of nasal or eye symptom will be evaluated as pollinosis symptom.

  12. Amount of nasal discharge measured every 30 minutes during pollen exposure in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Amount of nasal discharge will be evaluated as nasal symptom.

  13. Frequency of sneezing measured every 30 minutes during pollen exposure in an exposure chamber [ Time Frame: Up to 12 Weeks after last vaccination ]
    Frequency of sneezing will be evaluated as nasal symptom.

  14. Safety assessed by incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    Adverse events will be coded using MedDRA. An adverse event with onset at any time from the time of informed consent until 13 weeks after last vaccination.

  15. Safety assessed by standard 12-lead electrocardiogram [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    After the subject has been resting comfortably in a supine position, ECGs will be recorded with the subject in the supine position.

  16. Safety assessed by vital signs: Body temperature [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    Body temperature will be measured in an axilla.

  17. Safety assessed by vital signs: Sitting blood pressure [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    Blood pressure will be measured in a sitting position.

  18. Safety assessed by vital signs: Sitting pulse rate [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    Pulse rate will be measured in a sitting position.

  19. Safety assessed by laboratory tests: Hematology [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    For quantitative laboratory measurements descriptive statistics will be used to summarize results and change from baseline by treatment group and time point.

  20. Safety assessed by laboratory tests: Biochemistry [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    For quantitative laboratory measurements descriptive statistics will be used to summarize results and change from baseline by treatment group and time point.

  21. Safety assessed by laboratory tests: Urinalysis [ Time Frame: Up to 10 months ]
    For qualitative laboratory measurements descriptive statistics will be used to summarize results and change from baseline by treatment group and time point.

  22. Safety assessed by serious adverse events reported up to 12 months after the last vaccination (long-term safety follow-up) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months after the last vaccination ]
    Adverse events will be coded using MedDRA. An adverse event with onset at any time from 13 weeks until 12 months after last vaccination.
