Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Vienna Challenge Chamber in season (Phase 3)

Phase 3 will consist of two treatment periods each lasting 8 days, with a 10 day wash-out between each treatment period.

Subjects will administer 200micrograms (μg) fluticasone propionate or fluticasone propionate matched placebo nasal spray, once daily for 8 days. Dosing will be supervised on the first and last days of each treatment period (Day 1 and Day 8).

Immediately following the last dose received on Day 8 the subject's signs and symptoms will be monitored: subjective symptom score every 15 minutes for rhinomanometry and measurement of nasal secretion every 30 minutes, and FEV1, AEs and symptoms of local irritancy.

Drug: Fluticasone Propionate

Subjects will receive the following treatment regimen over one of two dosing periods within each of the three study phases:

- Intranasal FPANS (Fluticasone Propionate aqueous nasal spray) 200 mcg once daily for 8 to 14 days i.e. 4 actuations (2 per nostril) daily, where each actuation delivers a volume of 100 mcL (microlitres) i.e. 50 mcg fluticasone propionate.

Other: Matched FPANS placebo

Subjects will receive the following placebo treatment regimen over one of two dosing periods within each of the three study phases:

  • Intranasal FPANS placebo once daily for 8 to 14 days (i.e. 4 actuations (2 per nostril) daily, where each actuation delivers a volume of 100 mcL.
Placebo Comparator: Vienna Challenge Chamber out of season (Phase 1)

Phase 1 will consist of two treatment periods each lasting 8 days, with a 10 day wash-out between each treatment period.

Subjects will administer 200μg fluticasone propionate or fluticasone propionate matched placebo nasal spray, once daily for 8 days. Dosing will be supervised on the first and last days of each treatment period (Day 1 and Day 8).

Immediately following the last dose received on Day 8 the subject's signs and symptoms will be monitored: subjective symptom score every 15 minutes for rhinomanometry and measurement of nasal secretion every 30 minutes, and FEV1, AEs and symptoms of local irritancy.

An intermediate study follow-up visit will take place 7-14 days after the last dose is received in treatment period 2.

Drug: Fluticasone Propionate

Subjects will receive the following treatment regimen over one of two dosing periods within each of the three study phases:

- Intranasal FPANS (Fluticasone Propionate aqueous nasal spray) 200 mcg once daily for 8 to 14 days i.e. 4 actuations (2 per nostril) daily, where each actuation delivers a volume of 100 mcL (microlitres) i.e. 50 mcg fluticasone propionate.

Other: Matched FPANS placebo

Subjects will receive the following placebo treatment regimen over one of two dosing periods within each of the three study phases:

  • Intranasal FPANS placebo once daily for 8 to 14 days (i.e. 4 actuations (2 per nostril) daily, where each actuation delivers a volume of 100 mcL.
Placebo Comparator: Park In Season (Phase 2)

Phase 2 will consist of 2 treatment periods lasting either 8 to 14 days (D) (depending on out-door conditions). There will be a 10D wash-out between this treatment period in Phase 2 and that in Phase 3.

Subjects will administer 200μg fluticasone propionate (or fluticasone propionate matched placebo nasal spray, once daily up to 14D, with dosing supervised on the first and last days of each treatment period (D1 and either D8 or up to D14).

Immediately following the last dose received on either D8 or up to D14 baseline measures will be taken (time = 0). The subject is then taken by bus to the Park and the first measurement will be taken 15 minutes after the subjects leave the bus and enter the Park.

Immediately following the last dose received on D8 or up to D14 the subject's signs and symptoms will be monitored: subjective symptom score every 15 minutes for rhinomanometry and measurement of nasal secretion every 30 minutes, and FEV1, AEs and symptoms of local irritancy

Detailed Description:

The aim of the study is to investigate the trial models, Vienna Challenge Chamber (VCC), in and out of season, and Park Study in season and the clinical efficacy of repeat doses of fluticasone propionate in subjects with seasonal allergic rhinitis. This will be a single-centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 3 phase study in 40 male or female subjects with seasonal allergic rhinitis. The subjects will be randomised to receive either fluticasone propionate aqueous nasal spray or matched placebo. The study consists of three phases with each phase consists of 2 treatment periods. A screening visit will be followed by Phase 1 (Vienna Chamber Challenge out of season), Phase 2 (Park Study, in season) and Phase 3 (Vienna Chamber Challenge in season). There will be a follow-up visit after Phase 1 and Phase 2 & 3 will be separated by a 10 day wash-out period. A follow-up visit will be completed 7-14 days after the last received dose. Intranasal fluticasone propionate will be administered daily for 8 days in the VCC and up to 14 days in the Park Study. Primary assessment will consist of major symptoms complex (MSC) during a 5-hour pollen allergen challenge in the Vienna Challenge Chamber (VCC) following final dosing on Day 8 and following final dosing between Day 8 and Day 14 in the Park Study. In addition, nasal flow measured by anterior rhinomanometry, wet tissue weight (as a surrogate of nasal secretion) and categorical scores for ocular symptoms, cough, itchy throat and itchy ears will be measured on day 8 (VCC) or on a day between 8-14 (Park).

Alternatively they may be surgically sterilised (refer to section 6.4) or remain abstinent for 2 weeks before exposure to study drug.
  • On examination the subject is found to have any structural nasal abnormalities or nasal polyposis, a history of frequent nosebleeds, recent nasal surgery or recent (within 3 weeks) or ongoing upper respiratory tract infection which in the responsible physician's opinion renders the subject unsuitable for participation in the study
  • The subject has any respiratory disease other than mild stable asthma that is controlled with occasional use of as-needed short-acting beta-agonists and associated with normal lung function.
  • The subject is likely to be unable to abstain from salbutamol use for 8 hours before a challenge
  • The subject has a history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the responsible physician, contraindicates their participation.
  • The subject has participated in a study with a new molecular entity during the previous 3 months or in any clinical study in the previous 2 months
  • The subject is concurrently participating in another clinical study in which the subject is or will be exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational drug or device.
  • The subject is currently taking regular (or a course of) medication whether prescribed or not, including steroids, vitamins and herbal remedies (e.g. St. John's Wort). Paracetamol and occasional as needed use of short-acting beta agonists is permitted
  • The subject regularly, or on average, drinks more than 3 units of alcohol per day - where 1 unit = ½ pint of beer (284milliliteres mL), or 1 glass of wine (125mL), or 1 measure of spirit (25mL).
  • The subject is at risk of non-compliance with the study procedures/restrictions.
