INS Subgroup: Congestion

Post hoc subgroup analysis

CONGESTION/OBSTRUCTION REDUCTION IN PATIENTS PREVIOUSLY USING STANDARD NASAL STEROIDS1,2

Reductions in congestion/obstruction at Week 4 in the subgroup of patients reporting standard nasal steroid use prior to study entry1,2

In a subgroup of patients reporting use of a standard nasal steroid within 30 days of the screening visit1:

  • Patients reported a mean treatment duration of 3 years with a standard nasal steroid
  • The improvements in this subgroup were similar in magnitude to improvements in overall study population
  These post hoc results are descriptive and should be interpreted with caution.
