Information provided by (Responsible Party):
The aim of the study is to assess the effects of intracoronary Riociguat on coronary blood flow in subjects with coronary artery disease and to compare this effect with the intracoronary nitroglycerin, a coronary vasodilator widly used to treat patients with coronary artery disease.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Drug: Riociguat (BAY63-2521) Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Study to Compare the Acute Coronary Vasodilating Effects of the sGC Stimulator Riociguat (BAY 63-2521) With the Nitric Oxide Donor Nitroglycerin in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The ratio of the coronary blood flow after Riociguat to the corresponding flow observed after adenosine, compared to that after nitroglycerin administration [ Time Frame: Within 5 min after completion of the intracoronary Riociguat infusion ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse event collection [ Time Frame: Until 30 days after study drug treatment ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: May 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm 1 Drug: Riociguat (BAY63-2521)
0.1 mg intracoronary infusion through coronary guide catheter. Single dose. Sequential application after initial vasoactive bolus of Adenosine (non-study drug) and Nitroglycerin (non-study drug).
