Condition(s) targeted: Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

Intervention: Fluticasone propionate (Drug); Flonase® (Drug); Placebo (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Teva Pharmaceuticals USA

Summary

This double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group, multi-site study has been designed to compare the safety and efficacy of a generic Fluticasone propionate Nasal Spray, 50 mcg (Teva Pharmaceuticals USA) to the FDA Reference Listed Drug, Flonase« (fluticasone propionate) 50 mcg nasal spray (GlaxoSmithKline), in the relief of the signs and symptoms of Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis. Additionally, both the test and reference formulations will be tested for superiority against a placebo nasal spray.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group, Multi-Site Study to Compare the Therapeutic Equivalence of Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray, 50 mcg With Flonase« Nasal Spray in the Relief of the Signs and Symptoms of Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Primary outcome: Change from baseline in average AM/PM reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) over days 1 to 14.

Secondary outcome: Change from baseline in average instantaneous Total Nasal Symptom Score (iTNSS) over days 1 to 14.

Eligibility

Minimum age: 12 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.

Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria:

- Male or non-pregnant, non-lactating female 12 years or age or older.

one or more of the allergens in season at the time the study is being conducted.

- A minimum of two consecutive years of previous history of seasonal allergic rhinitis

to the pollen/allergen in season at the time the study is being conducted.

- A score of at least 6 on the reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) and a

minimum score of at least 2 for "nasal congestion" and a minimum score of at least 2 for one of the remaining 3 symptoms representing the 12 hours prior to the screening visit.

- An average composite score of at least 6 on the reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score

(rTNSS) and a minimum score of at least 2 for "nasal congestion" and a minimum score of at least 2 for one of the remaining 3 symptoms representing the last 3 days of the 7-day lead-in period before the randomization visit and the morning of the first day of the randomization visit. Exclusion Criteria:

- Under 12 years of age.

- Females who are pregnant, lactating, or likely to become pregnant during the study.

- Negative or lack of documented skin allergen test (performed within the previous 12

months) to at least one of the allergens in season at the time of the study is being conducted. The results of all positive shin allergen tests should be reported.

- Patients who suffer from chronic signs and symptoms of perennial allergic rhinitis

(PAR) should be excluded from the study unless the Investigator assesses that the patient's current signs and symptoms are a clear exacerbation of Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) rather than chronic PAR.

- Patients who suffer only from perennial allergic rhinitis or seasonal allergic

rhinitis to a different allergen that that in season at the time the study is conducted.

- Previous history of less than 2 years of seasonal allergic rhinitis to the

pollen/allergen in season at the time the study is being conducted.

- A total score of less that 6 on the reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) or a

score of less than 2 for "nasal congestion" or a score of less than 2 for all 3 of the remaining symptoms.

- History of asthma over the previous 2 years that required chronic therapy.

Occasional acute or mild exercise induced asthma will be allowable on the condition that the treatment of the attacks is restricted to beta-agonists only.

- Patients with nasal conditions, including infectious rhinitis, rhinitis

medicamentosa, or atrophic rhinitis.

- Clinically significant nasal deformity (e. g. significantly deformed septum, nasal

polyps, or ulcers) or any recent nasal surgery or trauma that has not completely healed.

- Sinus infection within the previous 30 days or history of re-occuring sinus

infections.

- Patient has started immunotherapy (including topical or desensitization therapy) or

changed their dose of immunotherapy within 30 days of the first dose, or is likely to have to start immunotherapy, or change their current dose during the study.

Candidiasis infection.

- Upper respiratory tract infection within the previous 30 days.

- Patients with a history of tuberculosis.

- Patients with the presence of glaucoma, cataracts, ocular herpes simplex,

the previous 30 days.
