About the STAGR320 Clinical Trial
The STAGR320 Phase III clinical trial, which included 1,607 patients from 231 participating investigative sites in 13 countries, assessed the treatment of HDM-induced allergic rhinitis in adult and adolescent patients. The trial achieved both its primary efficacy endpoint and key secondary endpoints and showed a comparable safety profile to that observed in other clinical studies with STAGR3201. The study results provide the medical community with compelling evidence that STAGR320 induces clinically relevant improvement of rhinitis symptoms in patients with HDM allergy, which ultimately has an impact on all parameters relating to quality of life.
The randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was the largest Phase III clinical trial conducted to evaluate the treatment of house dust mite allergy1.
About Allergic Rhinitis and STAGR320
Allergic rhinitis is a worldwide disease affecting more than 500 million people, who are at higher risk of developing rhinitis exacerbation and asthma than the general population. Allergic rhinitis can include symptoms such as sneezing, a runny or itchy nose, nasal congestion and watery or itchy eyes, among others2,3. Symptoms may be severe and can worsen over time and have a significant impact on quality of life2,3,4,5,6.
STAGR320 is Stallergenes Greer’s sublingual allergen immunotherapy (AIT) tablet for the treatment of HDM-induced allergic rhinitis. Allergen immunotherapy uniquely alters the natural course of respiratory allergies by inducing tolerance in the immune system.
STAGR320 will be marketed under the brand names Actair®, Orylmyte® or Aitmyte® in selected European countries.
