National Nasal Allergy Survey Reveals Unmet Needs Still Exist Among Patients Living With Allergic Rhinitis
Date:3/21/2011

order to determine the burden of disease of allergic rhinitis, a parallel telephone survey was conducted among a national probability sample of 522 adults sampled by random digit dialing. This survey of the general adult population of the U.S. yielded a subsample of 400 persons aged 18 and older who did not have current nasal allergies. The comparison of the two samples of adults with and without nasal allergies provides a new measure of the impact of nasal allergies on the health and lifestyle of patients.

A third parallel survey was conducted among 250 healthcare practitioners who see patients with nasal allergies. The healthcare practitioner sample includes a national sample of 200 physicians in direct patient care in outpatient settings in the U.S., including 100 in adult primary care specialties (family practice and general internal medicine) and 100 specialists (allergy and otolaryngology). In addition, a national sample of 50 nurse practitioners and physician assistants were interviewed as part of the study.

Based on the available evidence, intranasal corticosteroids are the most effective treatment options for patients with AR. Morbidity associated with AR can be significant. Effective treatment of AR may improve asthma control when both diseases coexist.

In the U.S., the prevalence of AR has increased during the past three decades; it is recently estimated at 20% in the general adult population and closer to 40% in children. Of the estimated 60 million Americans affected with AR, approximately 20% have SAR, 40% have PAR, and 40% have a combination of the two (i.e., PAR with seasonal exacerbation) depending on the allergen sensitivity. Because of its prevalence and health effect, AR is associated with considerable direct and indirect costs. An estimate of
