  Purpose

Previous publications have indicated that Allergic Rhinitis (AR) patients suffering from both ocular and nasal symptoms have a greater burden of illness and lower quality of life than patients suffering from nasal symptoms alone. Fluticasone furoate (FF) acts against both nasal and ocular symptoms. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences in symptom control (both perceptually and objectively) and resource use for patients with current seasonal AR.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the differences in Symtom Free Days (SFD) in patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the differences in Quality of Life (mini-Rhinoconjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire) in patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in the number of AR treatments used by patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in the number of non-prescribed treatments used by patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in the cost of non-prescribed treatments used by patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index in patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in productivitiy (Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire) of patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in number of work day lost by patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate the differences in the number of physician visits (as reported by patient and doctor) by patients receiving FF, MF or FP [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:
  • Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a common inflammatory condition of the upper respiratory tract, nasal cavity and eyes affecting up to 20% of the population in the United States and Europe. The bothersome nature of AR symptoms can severely affect daily activities including ability to work and examination performance and impact on quality of life (QoL) and psychosocial well being.
  • This study assesses the impact of Fluticasone furoate (FF) on the QoL of seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR) patients, including the number of symptom-free days (SFD) and quality of life over the last 4 weeks, and compares this with other inhaled nasal steroids (INS): mometasone furate (MF) and fluticasone proprionate (FP).
  • Selected physicians provide information including a range of demographic, symptom and treatment details for a number of their SAR patients. The patient themselves are then invited to provide details about their SAR including symptoms, the impact of AR upon their lifestyles, attitudes to treatment and completion of Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) instruments.
