  • Publication number: 20070286813
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a novel nasal formulation for the treatment and prophylaxis of nasal congestion. When an infant is born, its nasal passages are relatively sterile, in time the nasal passages are colonized by fungi, molds and other organisms which compromise the integrity of the nasal and paranasal mucosa. The presence of these organisms elicits a mild chronic inflammatory reaction of the nasal and paranasal mucosa, in some cases leading to congestion and excess production of mucus. This chronic inflammatory process compromises the integrity of the nasal and paranasal mucosa, making it more vulnerable to binding with allergens and other invading organisms such as the rhinovirus. The purpose of this invention is to establish a treatment and prophylaxis of nasal congestion, which will control the presence of the invading organisms in the nasal and paranasal mucosa, reducing congestion as well as mucus production.
