This study will determine the capacity of more frequent dosing of QAV680 to suppress allergic inflammation. The study will investigate the paradigm of multiple receptor antagonism in allergic disease by combining QAV680 with a second generation H1 histamine receptor antagonist to assess possible additive or synergistic anti-allergic effects of the two compound classes.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment
QAV680 + Cetirizine Placebo, QAV680 + Cetirizine, Cetirizine + QAV680 Placebo, QAV680 Placebo + Cetirizine Placebo

A potent second-generation histamine H1 antagonist that is effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, chronic urticaria, and pollen-induced asthma. Unlike many traditional antihistamines, it does not cause drowsiness or anticholinergic side effects.
A histamine H1 receptor antagonist that is effective in the treatment of chronic urticaria, dermatitis, and histamine-mediated pruritus. Unlike its major metabolite CETIRIZINE, it does cause drowsiness. It is also effective as an antiemetic, for relief of anxiety and tension, and as a sedative.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
