Current pharmacotherapy for allergic rhinitis (AR) does not totally ameliorate all symptoms for all patients. Residual symptoms could be due to nasal neuronal hyperresponsiveness caused by stimulation of the ion channel transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1). SB-705498 is a TRPV1 antagonist that has been developed in an intranasal formulation for treatment of AR.This randomized, double-blind, 3-way incomplete block crossover study evaluated the effects of 8 days treatment with SB-705498 12 mg alone, SB-705498 12 mg plus fluticasone propionate 200 μg (FP), FP 200 μg alone or placebo on allergen-induced symptoms in 70 patients with AR. The primary endpoint was total nasal symptom score (TNSS), expressed as mean over 4 hours or maximum TNSS during allergen challenge in the Vienna Challenge Chamber on 8th day of treatment.At the end of treatment, there were no differences in allergen-induced mean TNSS between SB-705498 alone and placebo or between SB-705498 plus FP and FP alone. Treatment with FP and SB-705498 plus FP resulted in a significant decrease in TNSS vs. placebo. Mean (90% CI) treatment differences in TNSS over 0 - 4 hours were: SB-705498 - placebo: -0.2 (-0.9, 0.4); SB-705498 plus FP - FP: 0.7 (0.2, 1.2); FP - placebo: -2.9 (-3.4, -2.5); SB-705498 plus FP - placebo: -2.3 (-2.8, -1.8). SB-705498 had no impact on diary card symptoms, nasal airflow or Rhinoconjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire scores. SB-705498 was well tolerated and pharmacokinetics exposure results supported the dosing regimen.SB-705498 12 mg for 8 days did not alleviate the allergen-induced symptoms of AR, or provide additional relief of symptoms when in combination with FP. Despite engagement of the TRPV1 receptor there was no translation to clinical efficacy, suggesting redundancy in symptom pathways.
