  Purpose
This phase 3, multi-center, double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial will attempt to demonstrate if preterm infants who require mechanical ventilation and/or positive pressure support at any point during days 5 to 14 after birth may benefit from treatment with iNO.

Condition Intervention Phase
Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia Drug: Inhaled Nitric Oxide Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Inhaled Nitric Oxide (INO) for the Prevention of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) in Preterm Infants Requiring Mechanical Ventilation or Positive Pressure Support on Days 5-14 After Birth

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival Without BPD at 36 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline, 36 weeks PMA ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Days of Airway Pressure Support - Intent-to-treat Population [ Time Frame: Through hospital discharge, an average of 105 days for placebo and 108 days for INO ]
    Airway pressure support includes conventional mechanical ventilation, conventional, high frequency oscillatory ventilation, jet, continuous positive airway pressure, and other.

  • Length of Birth Hospitalization [ Time Frame: Through hospital discharge, an average of 105 days for placebo and 108 days for INO ]
  • Number and Percentage of Participants With Use of Postnatal Corticosteroids for Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia [ Time Frame: Through hospital discharge, an average of 105 days for placebo and 108 days for INO ]
  • Number and Percentage of Participants With Use of Postnatal Corticosteroids for Any Medical Reason [ Time Frame: Through hospital discharge, an average of 105 days for placebo and 108 days for INO ]
  • Systemic Use of Postnatal Corticosteroids for Any Medical Reason [ Time Frame: Through hospital discharge, an average of 105 days for placebo and 108 days for INO ]
  • Number of Days of Oxygen Use [ Time Frame: Through hospital discharge, an average of 105 days for placebo and 108 days for INO ]
  • Severity of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia [ Time Frame: 36 weeks ]
    Severity of bronchopulmonary dysplasia defined by the fraction of inspired O2 concentration (FiO2) requirement.


Enrollment: 451
Study Start Date: November 2009
Study Completion Date: May 2014
Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Inhaled Nitric Oxide
Inhaled Nitric Oxide
Drug: Inhaled Nitric Oxide
Inhaled Nitric Oxide will be administered continuously starting at 20ppm into the inspiratory limb of the ventilator circuit in mechanically ventilated subject using an INOvent delivery system of by nasal cannula as needed for 24 days of therapy.
Other Name: INOmax
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Nitrogen Placebo
Drug: Placebo
Nitrogen gas will be administered in the same manner as the experimental drug.
Other Name: Nitrogen gas

Detailed Description:
Multi-center, double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. Infants who meet all enrollment criteria at any point during days 5 to 14 after birth will be randomized to inhaled NO starting at 20 ppm, or matching placebo, by means of a blinded INOvent® delivery device. All infants will receive 24 days of therapy, following a dose reduction schedule. Infants who are extubated before 24 days will continue therapy via nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or nasal cannula to complete 24 days' of therapy. The primary outcome measure will be survival without BPD at 36 weeks gestational age using a physiologic assessment of BPD.
