Patient preference study

In a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, cross-over, patient preference study, that evaluated fluticasone furoate and mometasone furoate nasal sprays for allergic rhinitis, 56% of patients preferred Avamys over MFNS (32%) 3 (n=300, p<0,001). The patient preferences of products may contribute to improved treatment adherence and enhanced treatment outcome in AR patients. 4
