Hay fever patients could be treated with steroid nasal spraysA research has suggested that fluticasone propionate (Flonase), a corticosteroid nasal spray, is superior to a combination of popular anti-allergy drugs loratidine (Claritin) and montelukast (Singulair) for managing seasonal allergies.

It was remarked by Robert Naclerio, M.D., professor of surgery at the University of Chicago and director of the study that inflammation measures were significantly better for patients afflicted with hay fever and treated with fluticasone propionate.

This finding by researchers from University of Chicago was presented at the 58th annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
