Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of Mean Change From Baseline in Daily Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) Over Each Treatment Period of Active Drug Nasal Sprays Versus Placebos [ Time Frame: Baseline, Treatment Period 1 (Days 1-7), Treatment Period 2 (Days 15-21) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reflective Total Nasal Symptom scores (rTNSS) symptoms of rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, sneezing using scale of: 0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe; maximum score=12. The mean of AM and PM scores were used.

    Subjects assessed preference of scent/odor for the nasal sprays used during the treatment periods by answering "I prefer product 1" for spray used during Treatment Period 1 or "I prefer product 2" for spray used during Treatment Period 2. Subject could also choose "I have no preference."


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparation of Mean Change From Baseline Over Each Treatment Period in Daytime Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Scores (D r-TNSS) for Active Drug Nasal Sprays Versus Placebos [ Time Frame: Baseline, Treatment Period 1 (Days 1-7), Treatment Period 2 (Days 15-21) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reflective Total Nasal Symptom scores (rTNSS) symptoms of rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, sneezing using scale of: 0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe.

  • Comparision of Mean Change From Baseline Over Each Treatment Period in Nighttime Reflective Total Nasal Symptom Scores (N-rTNSS) for Active Drug Nasal Sprays Versus Placebos [ Time Frame: Baseline, Treatment Period 1 (Days 1-7), Treatment Period 2 (Days 15-21) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reflective Total Nasal Symptom scores (rTNSS) symptoms of rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, sneezing using scale of: 0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe; maximum score=12.

  • Subject Preference of Fluticasone Furoate Nasal Spray (FFNS) Versus Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray (FPNS) on Preference for: Leaking Out of Nose/Down Throat [ Time Frame: End of Crossover Period (Day 22) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects assessed preference over leaking out of nose/down throat for the nasal sprays used during the treatment periods by answering "I prefer product 1" for spray used during Treatment Period 1 or "I prefer product 2" for spray used during Treatment Period 2. Subject could also choose "I have no preference."

  • Subject Preference of Fluticasone Furoate Nasal Spray (FFNS) Versus Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray (FPNS) on Preference for: Ease of Use [ Time Frame: End of Crossover Period (Day 22) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects assessed preference over ease of use for the nasal sprays used during the treatment periods by answering "I prefer product 1" for spray used during Treatment Period 1 or "I prefer product 2" for spray used during Treatment Period 2. Subject could also choose "I have no preference."

  • Subject Preference of Fluticasone Furoate Nasal Spray (FFNS) Versus Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray (FPNS) on Preference for: Gentleness of Mist [ Time Frame: End of Crossover Period (Day 22) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects assessed preference over gentleness of mist for the nasal sprays used during the treatment periods by answering "I prefer product 1" for spray used during Treatment Period 1 or "I prefer product 2" for spray used during Treatment Period 2. Subject could also choose "I have no preference."

  • Age
  • 18 years or age or older at time of Visit 2

  • Female subjects should not be enrolled if they plan to become pregnant during the time of study participation. A urine pregnancy test will be required of all females at all visits to determine if the subject is pregnant.
  • To be eligible for entry into the study, females of childbearing potential must commit to the consistent and correct use of an acceptable method of birth control, as defined by the following:
  • Abstinence
  • Females of childbearing potential who are not sexually active must commit to complete abstinence from intercourse for two weeks before exposure to the study drug, throughout the clinical trial, and for a period after the trial to account for elimination of the drug (minimum of six days).
