Lertal® is an oral nutraceutical containing Perilla frutescens extract, vitamin D3 and quercetin, which has been shown to reduce allergic symptoms in adults. The purpose of this randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled study was to evaluate the effects of Lertal® in children with allergic rhinoconjunctivitis.

Effects of a food supplements containing Perilla frutescens, vitamin D3 and quercetin on allergic rhinoconjunctivitis in children.

146 children (9.1 ± 1.88 years) have been enrolled. All participants were treated with standard antihistaminic medication. They were randomly assigned to placebo or to the test product for 4 weeks. The main outcome was the change in Total Symptom Score during the last 12 hours, from baseline to the end of the study.

A reduction in Total Symptom Score has been measured in both groups, without any significant difference between the two groups. However, among the 24 children who experienced symptoms worsening, 8 were in the supplemented group and 16 in the placebo group (p < 0.05). All children with symptoms worsening was poly-allergic children exposed to multiple allergen.

Therefore, this study suggests that Lertal® has no clear effect on treatment of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis in children when used in combination with antihistaminic treatment, but may prevent symptoms worsening in polyallergic chilren.
