Steroid Nasal Spray Effective against Hay FeverResearchers from the University of Chicago have found that fluticasone propionate (Flonase), a corticosteroid nasal spray, is more effective than a combination of popular anti-allergy drugs loratidine (Claritin) and montelukast (Singulair) when it comes to controlling seasonal allergies.

The findings of this study were presented at the 58th annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

Robert Naclerio, M.D., professor of surgery at the University of Chicago and director of the study, remarked that the measures of inflammation were considerably better for Hay fever patients who were taking fluticasone propionate.

During the study, it was found that the use of nasal spray results in fewer eosinophils in patients’ nasal passages and patients using steroid nasal sprays displayed minimal side-effects and had lower levels of eosinophil cationic protein, an inflammation sign.

Naclerio remarked that fluticasone may be a better first choice for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis because of its benefits and low cost.
