Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Conjunctival Provocation Test (CPT) With House Dust Mite Allergen Solutions. Change of Median Individual Allergen Tolerance Compared to Baseline (Factor of Increase in Allergen Concentration to Induce a Threshold CPT Score ≥ 2) [ Time Frame: baseline versus 2 months after baseline ]

    The outcome measure is a conjunctival provocation test (CPT) with house dust mite allergen solutions. CPT score was measured as a sum of the following assessed symptoms: conjunctival hyperemia, tearing, itching, burning and swelling of eyelids. Each of the assessed symptom could be absent (0), mild (1 point), moderate (2 points) or severe (3 points). The provocation tests started with the maximal dilution of the allergen 1:1000. If the sum of the reached CPT score was <10 points, the test continued with the next dilution step 1:100. This procedure was repeated until patients reached the CPT score ≥ 10 points or the provocation solution reached the maximal concentration 1:1 (undiluted).

    The outcome is then given as the change of median individual allergen tolerance at month two compared to baseline. The change is expressed as a factor of increase in allergen concentration to induce a threshold CPT score ≥ 2.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and Tolerability of the Study Treatment by Collection of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: about 30 min. at each visit ]
