Published Studies Related to Veramyst (Fluticasone Nasal)

An integrated analysis of the efficacy of fluticasone furoate nasal spray versus placebo on the nasal symptoms of perennial allergic rhinitis. [2013]
Intranasal corticosteroids are widely prescribed for the treatment of perennial allergic rhinitis (PAR). The aim of this analysis was to determine whether the beneficial effects of once-daily (q.d.) fluticasone furoate nasal spray (FFNS) effectively improved individual nasal symptoms of PAR...

MP29-02 (a novel intranasal formulation of azelastine hydrochloride and fluticasone propionate) in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of efficacy and safety. [2012]
Many patients with allergic rhinitis (AR) have uncontrolled symptoms despite available treatment options. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MP29-02 (a novel intranasal formulation of fluticasone propionate [FP] and azelastine [AZ] hydrochloride), compared with monotherapy with FP, AZ, and placebo sprays for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR)...

Effect of fluticasone furoate on interleukin 6 secretion from adenoid tissues in children with obstructive sleep apnea. [2011.06]
OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of intranasal corticosteroid therapy on T-regulatory cells and other inflammatory cytokines in adenoid tissues in children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome... CONCLUSIONS: In this study, we show reduction of IL-6, a proinflammatory cytokine, in adenoid tissue obtained from children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome treated with fluticasone furoate nasal spray. This reduction could contribute to the clinical efficacy of this class of medications in the treatment of childhood obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

Oxymetazoline adds to the effectiveness of fluticasone furoate in the treatment of perennial allergic rhinitis. [2011.04]
BACKGROUND: In clinical trials, only about 60% of subjects report an excellent response to intranasal steroids, suggesting a need to add therapies to intranasal steroids to provide additional efficacy. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the combination of fluticasone furoate and oxymetazoline is more efficacious than either agent alone, and to determine whether rhinitis medicamentosa develops after treatment... CONCLUSION: The addition of oxymetazoline adds to the effectiveness of fluticasone furoate in the treatment of perennial allergic rhinitis. The lack of development of rhinitis medicamentosa suggests the need for a large multicenter study to develop a once-a-day combination of an intranasal steroid and a long-acting topical decongestant.

Clinical Trials Related to Veramyst (Fluticasone Nasal)

Effect of Flovent Discus vs QVAR vs Pulmicort Flexhaler on Short Term Growth [Recruiting]
Children with mild persistent asthma that have asthma symptoms once or twice a week and use a daily controller, while children with mild intermittent asthma rarely have asthma symptoms and do not use a daily controller. Inhaled corticosteroids are the standard treatment for mild peristent asthma. The purpose of this study is to measure children rate of growth while on different inhaled corticosteroids.

A 12-Month Study Comparing Fluticasone Propionate/Salmeterol (ADVAIR) DISKUS Combination Product 250/50mcg Twice Daily To Fluticasone Propionate (FLOVENT) DISKUS 250 Mcg Twice Daily In Symptomatic Patients With Asthma [Completed]
This purpose of this study is to show the superiority and long term safety and efficacy of adding a long acting beta agonist (salmeterol) to constant dose of an inhaled corticosteroid (fluticasone propionate) in symptomatic subjects with asthma. The 12-month assessment of asthma control will provide key information on the efficacy and safety of the combination therapy. The safety measure will be an assessment of adverse events

Sensitivity of Pharmacokinetics to Differences in Aerodynamic Particle Size Distribution [Recruiting]
When a drug company first develops a drug, the company has to show the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the drug is safe and effective. If FDA concludes that the drug is safe and effective, FDA approves the drug. The company can then sell the drug, which the company does using "trade name." Only the drug company that developed the "trade name" drug is allowed to sell it. However, other drug companies can create their own version of the "trade name" drug, which usually happens after the patents for the "trade name" product run out. These drugs, often called "generic drugs," potentially will be less expensive for the patient. In order to sell generic drugs, drug companies must show that their generic version is the same as the "trade name" drug in a number of ways. For example, they generally have to show that their product is intended to be used to treat the same diseases or conditions, that it has the same label, and that the product has the same active ingredient as the "trade name" drug. The generic company also has to show that generic product is "bioequivalent" to the trade name drug, meaning that the generic product gets to the part of the body where the drug works at the same rate that the trade name drug does. How to show how much drug gets to the part of the body where it works, and how fast, depends on the type of product the drug is. The primary aim of this research study is to aid the FDA in finding methods to ensure that the versions of generic drugs that are inhaled (for example, drugs used to treat asthma) are bioequivalent to the trade name drug. As a part of the research study, pharmacokinetic (PK) studies (studies measuring drug levels in the blood over time after inhalation) will be done using three different versions of fluticasone propionate (FP, a drug routinely used in asthmatic patients) administered using a dry powder inhaler (DPI, an inhalation device that delivers the drug as a dry powder). The results from this study will help FDA ensure that generic products are the same as the trade name drugs.

Seretide Versus Flixotide In Asthmatic Children Not Controlled By Inhaled Corticosteroids [Completed]
This study will compare two treatment strategies (doubling the dose of inhaled steroids or adding a long acting beta2 agonist to the inhaled steroid at the same dose) in children not controlled by inhaled steroid alone at medium dose. The fixed combination SERETIDE 100/50 one inhalation twice daily will be compared to FLIXOTIDE 100 two inhalations twice daily.

A 26-week Treatment Randomized, Double-blind, Double Dummy Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of QVA149 [Completed]
To demonstrate the non-inferiority of QVA149 110/50 µg o. d. to fluticasone/salmeterol 500/50 µg b. i.d. in terms of trough Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) (mean of 23 hours 15 min and 23 hours 45 min post QVA149 dose) following 26 weeks of treatment in patients with moderate to severe COPD
