- Positive skin test to a prevalent fall allergen

Exclusion Criteria:

- On focused Nasal Examination, the presence of any nasal mucosal erosion, nasal

ulceration, or nasal septal perforation at either the screening visit or randomization visit will disqualify the subject from the study.

- Other nasal disease(s)likely to affect deposition of intranasal medication, such as

sinusitis, rhinitis medicamentosa, clinically significant polyposis, or nasal structural abnormalities.

- Nasal Surgery or sinus surgery within the previous year

- Chronic sinusitis-more than 3 episodes a year

- Planned travel outside of the study area during the study period

- The use of any investigational drug within 30 days prior to screening. No

investigational products are permitted for use during the conduct of the study.

- Presence of any hypersensitivity to drugs similar to azelastine and to either

sorbital or sucralose (Splenda brand sweetener)

- Women who are pregnant or nursing

- Women of childbearing potential who are not abstinent or not practicing medically

acceptable method of contraception

- Respiratory tract infections requiring antibiotic treatment 14 days prior to


- Asthma (with the exception of mild, intermittent asthma). Subjects with mild,

intermittent asthma who only require short-acting inhaled bronchodilators (not for more often tha twice a week) and who do not have nocturnal awakening as a result of asthma are eligible for enrollment

- Significant pulmonary disease including COPD

- Clinically significant arrythmia or symptomatic cardiac conditions

- A known history of alcohol or drug abuse within the last 2 years

- Existence of any surgical or medical condition or physical laboratory findings, which

in the opinion of the investigator or sponsor's medical monitor, might significantly alter the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of study drug; that might significantly affect the subject's ability to complete this trial; or their safety in this trial

- Clinically relevant abnormal physical findings which, in the opinion of the
