Double-blind phase: The objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Bilastine 20 mg, compared to Cetirizine and placebo for the treatment of perennial allergic rhinitis.

Double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, international, multicenter study followed by an open label extension. Duration of the double-blind period was 28 days and the duration of the open label period was 12 additional months.
The primary efficacy variable of the double-blind period was the area under curve (AUC) of total symptoms scale (TSS) from baseline (defined as the mean of 6 last points of the patients' diary before randomization) to D28 visit according to the patient's assessment on reflective symptoms. 650 patients were included in the study and 614 completed the double-blind phase. Out of the 614 patients who completed the double blind period, a total of 513 patients started the open label period with Bilastine 20 mg (83.6%)

Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.
A group of symptoms that are two- to three-fold more common in those who work in large, energy-efficient buildings, associated with an increased frequency of headaches, lethargy, and dry skin.
