Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Daily Subject-reported AM and PM Reflective TNSS Averaged Over the Two-week Treatment Period. [ Time Frame: Week 0-2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    TNSS is the sum of individual symptoms of runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose, and nasal congestions. Subjects assess each individual symptoms on a scale of 0-3 where:

    0 = absent

    1. = mild
    2. = moderate
    3. = severe Therefore, rTNSS values range from 0-12 (with 0 representing an absence of symptoms and higher scores reflecting more severe symptoms). Reflective TNSS measures these symptoms over the previous 12-hour time interval. Difference was calculated as the two week treatment average - baseline. Greater reductions in the change from baseline score indicate greater improvement.


Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • History of a respiratory infection or disorder [including, but not limited to bronchitis, pneumonia, chronic sinusitis, influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)] within the 14 days preceding the Screening Visit .
  • History of alcohol or drug abuse within two years preceding the Screening Visit.
  • History of a positive test for HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C.
  • Plans to travel outside the study area (the known pollen area for the investigative site) for more than 24 hours during the Run-in period.
  • Plans to travel outside the study area (the known pollen area for the investigative site) for 2 or more consecutive days between Randomization Visit and the final Treatment Visit.
  • Active asthma requiring treatment with inhaled or systemic corticosteroids and/or routine use of beta-agonists and any controller drugs (eg, theophylline, leukotriene antagonists, etc.); intermittent use (less than or equal to 3 uses per week) of inhaled short acting beta-agonists is acceptable.
  • Use of any disallowed concomitant medications within the prescribed (per protocol) time period prior to the Screening Visit and expected use during treatment period.
  • Use of antibiotic therapy for acute conditions within 14 days prior to the Screening Visit. Low doses of antibiotics taken for prophylaxis are permitted if the therapy was started prior to the Screening Visit and is expected to continue throughout the trial.
  • Initiation of immunotherapy during the study period or dose escalation during the study period. However, initiation of immunotherapy 90 days or more prior to the Screening Visit and use of a stable (maintenance) dose (30 days or more) may be considered for inclusion.
  • Previous participation in an intranasal ciclesonide HFA nasal aerosol study.
  • Non-vaccinated exposure to or active infection with, chickenpox or measles within the 21 days preceding the Screening Visit.
  • Initiation of pimecrolimus cream 1% or greater or tacrolimus ointment 0.03% or greater during the study period or planned dose escalation during the study period. However, initiation of these creams/ointments 30 days or more prior to screening and use of a stable (maintenance) dose during the study period may be considered for inclusion.
  • Study participation by clinical investigator site employees and/or their immediate relatives.
  • Study participation by more than one subject from the same household at the same time.
  • Have any of the following conditions that are judged by the investigator to be clinically significant and/or affect the subject's ability to participate in the clinical trial:

    • impaired hepatic function including alcohol-related liver disease or cirrhosis;
    • history of ocular disturbances eg, glaucoma or posterior subcapsular cataracts;
    • any systemic infection;
    • hematological, hepatic, renal, endocrine (except for controlled diabetes mellitus or postmenopausal symptoms or hypothyroidism);
    • gastrointestinal disease;
    • malignancy (excluding basal cell carcinoma);
    • current neuropsychological condition with or without drug therapy.
  • Any condition that, in the judgement of the investigator, would preclude the subject from completing the protocol with capture of the assessments as written.
