Further study details as provided by Mahidol University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total nasal symptoms score [ Time Frame: average within 1 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    3 point scale (0,1,2,3) and combination of

    • nasal block
    • rhinorrhea
    • itching
    • sneezing


Secondary Outcome Measures:
