Details and patient eligibility


This is a 16-Week Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Parallel-Group, Multicenter Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of OPN-375 186 μg Twice a Day (BID) in Adolescents with Bilateral Nasal Polyps followed by a 12-Week Open-Label Treatment Phase. The total planned number of subjects is approximately 120 adolescents (12-17 years of age) who will be randomly assigned to receive 1 of 2 study treatments using a 2:1 ratio (OPN-375 186 μg: Placebo). For the PK sub-study, up to 14 subjects will be enrolled to obtain 10 completers.

Full description

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of intranasal administration of OPN-375 186 μg Twice a Day (BID) versus placebo in adolescents with bilateral nasal polyposis and nasal congestion by analyzing the reduction of nasal congestion/obstruction symptoms at the end of Week 4 measured by the 7-day average instantaneous morning diary symptom scores and the reduction in total polyp grade at Week 16 as determined by a nasal polyp grading scale score measured using a 0 to 6 point severity grading scale.

Inclusion criteria

  1. Male or female subjects aged 12 to 17 years, inclusive, at time of Visit 1 (Screening).

  2. Female subjects, if sexually active, must:

    1. be practicing an effective method of birth control (e.g., prescription oral contraceptives, contraceptive injections, contraceptive patch, intrauterine device, double-barrier method [e.g., condoms, diaphragm, or cervical cap with spermicidal foam, cream, or gel], or male partner sterilization) before entry and throughout the study, or
    2. be surgically sterile, (have had a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy, tubal ligation, or otherwise be incapable of pregnancy), or
    3. or agree to abstinence.
  3. Ability to read and speak English

  4. All female subjects not documented to be infertile (e.g., infertility due to congenital abnormality or surgical sterilization) must have a negative serum or urine beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) at Visit 1 (Screening) and a negative urine pregnancy test at the Visit 2 (Day 1/Randomization/Baseline)

  5. Must have bilateral nasal polyposis with a grade of 1 to 3 in each of the nasal cavities as determined by a nasal polyp grading scale score measured by nasoendoscopy at Visit 1 (Screening)

  6. Must report at least mild symptoms of nasal congestion/obstruction as demonstrated by an average morning nasal congestion/obstruction score of at least 1.0 over the last 7 days of the run-in period (Subjects not meeting this inclusion criterion may be re-screened once after at least 4 weeks.)

  7. Subjects with comorbid asthma must be stable, defined as no exacerbations (e.g., no emergency room visits, hospitalization, or oral or parenteral steroid use) within the 3 months before Visit 1 (Screening). Subjects who received inhaled corticosteroids are required to be on no more than a moderate dosage regimen as defined by 2005 Global Initiative for Asthma Guidelines (GINA) for 1 month before Visit 1 (Screening) and to be expected to remain on it throughout the study. Visit 1 (Screening)

  8. Must be able to cease treatment with intranasal medications including, but not limited to, intranasal oxymetazoline or any other decongestants, intranasal antihistamines, intranasal steroids, intranasal sodium cromolyn, nasal atropine, nasal ipratropium bromide, as well as inhaled corticosteroids (except permitted doses listed above for asthma) at Visit 1 (Screening). (Note: intranasal antibiotics and saline are permissible)

  9. If taking oral antihistamines, must be on a stable regimen for at least 2 weeks prior to the Visit 1 (Screening), and agree to not change the dose of these medications until after Visit 3 (Week 4) of the study.

  10. Subject (with assistance from parent or legal guardian if needed) must demonstrate the ability to correctly complete the daily diary during the run-in period to be eligible for randomization.

  11. Must demonstrate correct use of the demo exhalation delivery system (EDS).

  12. Must be capable, in the opinion of the investigator, of providing assent and the appropriate parent(s) or guardian must provide an informed consent to participate in the study.

  7. Other significant nasal pathology or abnormal anatomy
