Drug Information available for: Selexipag

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Selexipag
Selexipag is initiated at 200 µg twice daily (b.i.d.) and up-titrated every 3 days in 200 μg b.i.d. increments up to the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for each individual patient but not above 1600 µg during the 3-week titration phase. This is followed by a 5-week maintenance phase, during which patients continue the treatment at their individual MTD.
Drug: Selexipag
Film-coated tablets containing 200 μg of selexipag to be administered orally twice daily
Other Name: ACT-293987

Experimental: Placebo
Placebo matching selexipag tablets is administered according to the same schedule as selexipag
Drug: Placebo
Placebo matching selexipag 200 μg tablets to be administered orally twice daily

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Average number of Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) attacks per week during the maintenance treatment period [ Time Frame: From Day 26 to Day 56 ( +/- 7 days) ]
    The number of RP attacks is determined from daily entries in electronic Diaries (eDiary).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients with treatment-emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to end of study (Day 86 +/- 7 days) ]
    A treatment-emergent adverse event is any adverse event (AE) temporally associated with the use of a study treatment, whether or not considered related to the study treatment, including any abnormalities in ECG parameters, vital signs or laboratory tests

  2. Number of patients with treatment-emergent serious adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to end of study (Day 86 +/- 7 days) ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change from baseline in quality of life (QOL) [ Time Frame: At baseline (Day 1) and end of treatment (Day 56 +/- 7 days) ]
    QOL is assessed by the Scleroderma Health Assessment Questionnaire (SHAQ)
