Study of the Effects of Ciclesonide on Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) Axis

2014-08-27 03:17:12 | BioPortfolio


To demonstrate the effects of ciclesonide applied as a nasal aerosol and ciclesonide aqueous (AQ) nasal spray on hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.


This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group, safety and efficacy study of the effects of ciclesonide HFA nasal aerosol and ciclesonide AQ nasal spray on the HPA axis, when administered once daily to male and female subjects 12 years or older diagnosed with Perennial Allergic Rhinitis (PAR).

The study consists of a screening period, a single blind run in period, a 6 week double blind treatment period including an active control segment, and a follow up period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.

Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.

Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).

The type species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS A that causes influenza and other diseases in humans and animals. Antigenic variation occurs frequently between strains, allowing classification into subtypes and variants. Transmission is usually by aerosol (human and most non-aquatic hosts) or waterborne (ducks). Infected birds shed the virus in their saliva, nasal secretions, and feces.
