Figure 1. Time intervals of interest for the analysis of primary and secondary efficacy variables. VCC = Vienna Challenge Chamber; MSC = Major Symptom Complex; CSS = Complex Symptom Score

Figure 2. Patient disposition in a clinical trial comparing levocetirizine and loratadine in subjects with Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) or Perennial Allergic Rhinitis (PAR) exposed to grass pollen or house-dust mite allergens, respectively, in the Vienna Challenge Chamber

Figure 3. Evolution of the mean Major Symptom Complex (MSC) score and Complex Symptom Score (CSS) during the total challenge session (time-interval 1 and time-interval 2) on day 1 of the treatment period for subjects with Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) or Perennial Allergic Rhinitis (PAR) exposed to grass pollen or house-dust mites, respectively, in the Vienna Challenge Chamber

Figure 4. Evolution of the mean Major Symptom Complex (MSC) score and Complex Symptom Score (CSS) during the total challenge session (time-interval 3 and time-interval 4) on day 2 of the treatment period for subjects with Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) or Perennial Allergic Rhinitis (PAR) exposed to grass pollen or house-dust mites, respectively, in the Vienna Challenge Chamber

Figure 5. Intensity of response (% reduction from baseline) for the Major Symptom Complex score and the Complex Symptom Score in subjects with Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) or Perennial Allergic Rhinitis (PAR), respectively, during time-interval 1
