Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety (Evaluation of Adverse Events) [ Time Frame: 1 Day ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Ear Pain Reduction using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 1 Day ]
    The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) consists of a 100 mm line anchored by 2 extremes of pain (e.g., no pain versus worse pain). Subjects mark the line where their pain is best represented between the 2 anchors. Pain intensity scores are determined by the distance from the 'no pain' anchor to the subject's mark. Ear pain will be scored by the subjects separately for the left and right ear.

  2. Ear Pain Reduction using the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS-11) [ Time Frame: 1 Day ]
    The NRS requires that subjects select a whole number that best represents the intensity of their pain. On the NRS-11, pain scores range from 0 to 11, with 0 representing no pain and 10 representing the worst pain possible. Ear pain will be scored by the subjects separately for the left and right ear.

  3. Global impression of change in symptoms will be rated by the subject using the Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) [ Time Frame: 1 Day ]
    The PGIC is a questionnaire that asks the subject to assess the global change in health status since receiving the study drug. Scores on the PGIC range from 1 to 7 with 1 = very much improved, 2 = much improved, 3 = minimally improved, 4 = no change, 5 = minimally worse, 6 = much worse, and 7 = very much worse

  4. The physician investigator will rate global impression of change post dose using Clinical Global Impressions Scale: Global Improvement (CGI I [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The CGI-I assesses the physician investigator's global impression of global change from baseline in symptoms since the administration of study drug. Scores range from 1 to 7, with 1 = very much improved, 2 = much improved, 3 = minimally improved, 4 = no change, 5 = minimally worse, 6 = much worse, and 7 = very much worse.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria includes but is not limited to:

  1. AOM diagnosis with moderate to severe bulging of the TM and recent (< 48 hours [h]) onset of ear pain.
  2. Moderate to severe ear pain in the affected ear(s), defined as a score of ≥ 5 (on a scale of 0 10) on the NRS 11 as evaluated by the subject at Screening.
  3. Generally good health (other than AOM) as determined by evaluation of medical history and physical examination at Screening.
  4. Negative urine pregnancy test at Screening for all female subjects of childbearing potential.
  5. Able to read and sign written informed consent prior to study participation.

Exclusion Criteria includes but is not limited to:

  1. Presence of a perforated TM at Screening or had a perforated TM within 6 months (mo) prior to Screening as determined by medical history
  2. Subjects with tympanostomy tubes
  3. Acute or chronic otitis externa
  4. Chronic otitis media defined as confirmed presence of middle ear effusion for 12 weeks or longer
  5. Disorders with decreased mucociliary clearance or higher viscosity of the mucous (eg, cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia, Kartagener's syndrome)
  6. Clinically relevant blockage of 1 or both nasal passages, as determined by the investigator's medical judgment
  7. Permanent hearing loss irrespective of otitis media
  8. Subjects with medical conditions that may affect interpretation of the safety or efficacy of study drug as determined by the investigator's medical judgment
  9. Subjects with craniofacial abnormalities (eg, cleft palate, Down's Syndrome)
  10. Subjects with erythema of the TM without other evidence of otitis media
  11. Seborrheic dermatitis involving the affected external ear canal or pinna
  12. Use of medications with known vasoconstrictive properties (eg, decongestants [Afrin®, Sudafed®]) currently or within 2 h prior to Screening
  13. Use of oral analgesics < 2 h prior to Screening or Baseline (oral analgesics > 2 h are permitted as long as ear pain criteria are met per Inclusion Criteria)
