Welcome to the NAIROS Trial

NAIROS is a surgical clinical trial, which compares surgery (septoplasty) with medical management (nasal sprays) in the treatment of nasal airway obstruction. 

The trial opened to recruitment in January 2018 and closed to recruitment in December 2019.

NAIROS has now closed to recruitment and the analysis has been completed.  The trial results are published under the trial results section of this site.

The trial is sponsored by Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

NAIROS is funded by the National Institute for Health Research's Health Technology Assessment Programme.

The trial is managed by Newcastle Clinical Trials Unit, a fully registered UKCRC Clinical Trials Unit.
