NCT01477333
First received: November 14, 2011
Last updated: February 5, 2013
Last verified: February 2013
  Purpose

The purpose of this multi-center, open-label, safety and tolerability study is to assess the addition of UT-15C SR to patients currently receiving Tyvaso (treprostinil) inhalation solution. The study will consist of a 24-week evaluation period followed by a long-term safety follow up. Assessments will include: hemodynamics, 6MWT, Borg dyspnea score, NT-proBNP, WHO functional class, and safety assessments.

Eligible patients will have a diagnosis of PAH, currently be receiving Tyvaso, and may be receiving other approved PAH specific oral therapies (ERAs and/or PDE-5 inhibitors, if at a stable dose for ≥ 30 days). At Baseline, subjects will receive the first dose of 0.125 mg UT-15C SR.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of the addition of UT-15C SR to Tyvaso [ Time Frame: ≥ 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    This study consists of a 24-week evaluation period followed by a long term safety follow-up for provision of UT-15C SR until FDA approval or the study is otherwise terminated.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in hemodynamic parameters [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in exercise capacity as measured by the 6- minute walk test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to clinical worsening [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • World Health Organization (WHO) functional class [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • N-terminal pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide (NTproBNP) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Criteria

Significant inclusion criteria includes:

  1. Subjects will be between 18-75 years
