Brief Title  ICMJE Effect of Intranasal Corticosteroids on Systemic Allergen Specific IgE
Official Title  ICMJE The Effect of Intranasal Corticosteroid on the Immune Response Following Nasal Allergen Challenge in Patients Suffering From Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis
Brief Summary Evaluation of the effect of fluticasone propionate vs placebo applied as nasal spray on the increase of allergen-specific serum IgE levels following nasal exposure to recombinant allergens. Nasal sprays will be applied for four weeks starting two weeks before nasal provocation and serum IgE levels will be followed during eight weeks after nasal provocation.
