Evidence reviews

Drug Class Review: Nasal Corticosteroids: Final Report Update 1 [Internet]

Nasal corticosteroids are a safe and effective treatment option for both allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. There are currently 8 different nasal corticosteroid preparations on the U.S. market. The nasal sprays differ with respect to delivery device and propellant, as well as potency and dosing frequency. The purpose of this review is evaluating the comparative evidence on the benefits and harms of the nasal corticosteroids to help policy makers and clinicians make informed choices.

Lactose Intolerance and Health

We systematically reviewed evidence to determine lactose intolerance (LI) prevalence, bone health after dairy-exclusion diets, tolerable dose of lactose in subjects with diagnosed LI, and management.

Treatments for Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis [Internet]

This review compared the effectiveness and common adverse events of medication classes used to treat seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR) in adolescents and adults, in pregnant women, and in children. We sought to compare the following classes of drugs: oral and nasal antihistamines and decongestants; intranasal corticosteroids, mast cell stabilizers (cromolyn), and anticholinergics (ipratropium); oral leukotriene receptor antagonists (montelukast); and nasal saline.
