Although direct-to-consumer (DTC) prescription drug advertising is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, content analyses suggest advertisers may not disclose drug risks in the same way they describe drug benefits. This study tests the relationship between image congruency in televised DTC advertisements, recall of risks/benefits, and perceived persuasiveness. Advertisements for Nasonex, Advair, and Lunesta were shown to college students in either their original (image incongruent) or modified (image neutral) form...

Azelastine nasal spray (Allergodil((R)), Lastin((R)), Afluon((R)); Meda AB, Stockholm, Sweden) is a fast-acting, efficacious and well-tolerated H1-receptor antagonist for the treatment of rhinitis. In addition it also has mast-cell stabilizing and anti-inflammatory properties, reducing the concentration of leukotrienes, kinins and platelet activating factor in vitro and in vivo, as well as inflammatory cell migration in rhinitis patients. Well-controlled studies in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR), perennial rhinitis (PR) or vasomotor rhinitis (VMR) confirm that azelastine nasal spray has a rapid onset of action, and improves nasal symptoms associated with rhinitis such as nasal congestion and post-nasal drip...

In order to assess the acceptability of a new scent-free formulation of mometasone furoate (Nasonex) among allergic rhinitis patients, who already have been treated by the scented formulation of Nasonex, a phone survey was performed with a sample of 216 patients recruited by Nasonex GP's prescribers and pharmacists. The aim of this survey is to assess the diagnosis modalities, the allergic rhinitis characteristics and associated symptoms in one hand and in the other hand, the main reasons which led them to prefer a new scent-free formulation, in comparison with the only commercialized scented mometasone furoate (Nasonex) at the time when this survey was conducted...

Many aqueous suspension corticosteroid nasal sprays become less viscous when shaken and sprayed, then return to a more viscous state after application. This time-dependent, reversible loss of viscosity under shear (e.g., shaking or spraying) can be quantified in the rheological property of thixotropy. The flow properties of 5 corticosteroid nasal sprays were measured over a range of shear rates. The formulations tested included Nasonex, Vancenase AQ, Nasacort AQ, Rhinocort Aqua, and Flonase. The yield stress values, as well as an estimate of thixotropy, were compared by using three different sampling techniques, including one that simulated patient use (shaking for 30 sec, spraying, and immediately transferring the sample to the rheometer)...

OBJECTIVE: Evidence in vitro suggests that benzalkonium chloride, a preservative in many intranasal preparations, interferes with ciliary function and thus could potentially interfere with mucociliary transport, the mechanism for clearing secretions from the nasal cavity. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a parallel randomized study with 10 subjects in each arm comparing Rhinocort AQUA (an intranasal steroid [budesonide] spray without benzalkonium chloride) and Nasonex (an intranasal steroid [mometasone furoate] spray with benzalkonium chloride)...

The rheological profiles of four commercial nasal spray suspensions (Beconase, Flixonase, Nasacort and Nasonex) were compared using rotational viscometry. Two of the nasal sprays (Beconase and Nasonex) were further examined in both shear and extension using a capillary rheometer under conditions similar to those experienced at the spray nozzle (i.e. extremely high shear rates with significant stretching or extensional flow). In rotation, the shear viscosity fell rapidly with increase in shear rate. Plots of the viscosity derived at the lower shear rates in rotation were extrapolated to include the high-shear rate capillary values...
