Improvement in allergic nasal symptoms following application of bepotastine besilate as an eyedrop
What is it about?
It was found that the anti-histamine bepotastine besilate which used to treat ocular allergy symptoms (itching and redness) also improved allergic nasal symptoms, both in well-controlled trials in the clinic and in an environmental (field) test during ragweed season.
Why is it important?
Anti-histamine eyedrops are approved for treating ocular symptoms of allergy and not for associated symptoms. The results described in this paper offer opportunities for further clinical development of eyedrops to treat allergic symptoms both in the eye and in the nasal passages.
