Hope for Allergy Sufferers as Altamira Publishes Positive Results from Rhinitis Study

Results from Altamira Therapeutics’ (Nasdaq:CYTO) NASAR clinical trial with Bentrio® nasal spray in seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR) has been accepted for publication in Allergy, one of the highest-ranking journals in the field of allergology. Bentrio is an OTC nasal spray for allergic rhinitis and a commercial-stage legacy asset for Altamira.

Bentrio (AM-301) is a drug-free and preservative-free nasal spray designed to help protect against airborne allergens such as pollen or house dust mites. Altamira tested Bentrio versus saline nasal spray in 100 patients during two allergy seasons in Australia. The study met its primary efficacy endpoint of improvement in nasal symptoms and demonstrated statistically significant improvement in health-related quality of life and reduced need for relief medication.

“We are thrilled to see the detailed results from our pivotal Australian trial published in one the leading medical journals in allergology,” commented Thomas Meyer, Altamira’s founder, Chairman, and CEO. “We are very encouraged to see that Bentrio helps to manage not only mild allergy symptoms, but also more severe ones, and appears to reduce the need for the use of drug-based relief treatments.”
