This active vs active comparative trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of incremental doses of atropine in combination with pseudoephedrine 120 mg/chlorpheniramine 8 mg in adult patients with a history of seasonal allergic rhinitis. Hypotheses are defined by total nasal symptom scores (TNSS) recorded by subjects in diaries where efficacy will be established by statistical significance where p < 0. 05.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase 2, Double-Blind, Parallel-Group, Dose-Ranging Study Evaluating Safety/ Efficacy Atropine Doses With Pseudoephedrine and Chlorpheniramine in SAR Patients 12 Years of Age and Older

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Dose-ranging data for atropin

Secondary outcome: Establish effect size for determining power and TNSS efficacy endpoint

Detailed description: Actives in each of the five study arms: Pseudoephedrine 120 mg/Chlorpheniramine 8 mg/Atropine 0. 36 mg Pseudoephedrine 120 mg/Chlorpheniramine 8 mg/Atropine 0. 24 mg Pseudoephedrine 120 mg/Chlorpheniramine 8 mg/Atropine 0. 12 mg Pseudoephedrine 120 mg/Chlorpheniramine 8 mg Atropine 0. 24 mg
