Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1b safety and tolerability single-sequence study in which PAH subjects on a stable regimen of Tyvaso will switch to a corresponding dose of TreT.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Drug: Treprostinil Inhalation Powder Phase 1

Detailed Description:
United Therapeutics Corporation (UTC) is developing a combination drug-device product which is comprised of a dry powder formulation of Treprostinil Inhalation Powder (TreT) and a small, portable, dry powder inhaler. In this Phase 1b safety and tolerability study, patients with PAH on a stable dose of Tyvaso (6 to 12 breaths 4 times daily [QID]) will be evaluated after switching to a corresponding dose of TreT. Patients will undergo PK assessments, safety assessments, a 6-Minute Walk Test (6MWT), and questionnaires for satisfaction/preference for inhaled devices and patient-reported PAH symptoms and impact. Following 3 weeks of treatment with TreT, patients will be offered the opportunity to participate in the Optional Extension Phase until the study terminates or the drug/device becomes commercially available.

Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Single-sequence in which subjects on a stable regimen of Tyvaso will switch to a corresponding dose of TreT

Official Title: An Open-label, Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Treprostinil Inhalation Powder (TreT) in Subjects With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Currently Using Tyvaso
Actual Study Start Date : September 17, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2022


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Tyvaso to TreT
Each subject will receive a corresponding dose of TreT for 3 weeks during the Treatment Phase based on the subject's current stable Tyvaso dose.
Drug: Treprostinil Inhalation Powder
Treprostinil inhalation powder single-use cartridges containing either 32 or 48 micrograms of treprostinil per cartridge (QID)
Other Name: TreT




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with treatment-emergent adverse events [Safety and Tolerability] [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
    The safety and tolerability of TreT in subjects with PAH currently treated with Tyvaso will be evaluated by the number of subjects with treatment-emergent adverse events


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Analysis of treprostinil plasma concentration (pharmacokinetics [PK]) [ Time Frame: Serial PK measurements at Baseline and Week 3 ]
    Systemic exposure of treprostinil will be evaluated in subjects with PAH when delivered as Tyvaso and TreT

  2. Change in 6-Minute Walk Distance (6MWD) from Baseline to Week 3 [ Time Frame: After 3 weeks of treatment with TreT ]
    6MWD will be evaluated at study entry and after 3 weeks of treatment with TreT

  3. Number of subjects with treatment-emergent adverse events [Long-term Safety and Tolerability] during an Optional Extension Phase [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks beginning on Week 7 until study termination, an average of 1 year ]
    The long-term safety and tolerability of TreT in subjects with PAH currently treated with Tyvaso will be evaluated by the number of subjects with treatment-emergent adverse events during an Optional Extension Phase of the study

  4. Subject satisfaction with and preference for inhaled treprostinil devices [ Time Frame: At Baseline (Tyvaso Inhalation System) and after 3 weeks of treatment (TreT Inhaler) ]
    Subject satisfaction with and preference for inhaled treprostinil devices will be evaluated with the Preference Questionnaire for Inhaled Treprostinil Devices (PQ-ITD)

  5. Patient-reported PAH symptoms and impact [ Time Frame: After 3 weeks and 11 weeks (for subjects participating in the Optional Extension Phase) of treatment with TreT ]
    Patient-reported PAH symptoms and impact will be evaluated with the PAH Symptoms and Impact (PAH-SYMPACT) Questionnaire

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject voluntarily gives informed consent to participate in the study.
  2. Subject is aged 18 years or older at the time of signing informed consent.
  3. Women of childbearing potential are those who have experienced menarche and who have not undergone successful surgical sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy) or are not postmenopausal (defined as amenorrhea for at least 12 consecutive months). WOCBP must be nonpregnant (as confirmed by a urine pregnancy test at Screening prior to initiating study medication), nonlactating, and will do 1 of the following:

    1. Abstain from intercourse (when it is in line with their preferred and usual lifestyle), or
    2. Use 2 medically acceptable, highly effective forms of contraception for the duration of study, and at least 30 days after discontinuing TreT. Medically acceptable, highly effective forms of contraception can include approved hormonal contraceptives (oral, injectable, and implantable), intrauterine devices or systems, and barrier methods (such as a condom or diaphragm) when used with a spermicide.
  4. Males with a partner of childbearing potential must use a condom for the duration of treatment and for at least 48 hours after discontinuing TreT.
  5. Subject is diagnosed with PAH as defined by the following World Health Organization (WHO) Group 1 categories:

    1. Idiopathic/familial
    2. Associated with unrepaired or repaired congenital systemic-to-pulmonary shunts (repaired ≥5 years prior to screening)
    3. Associated with collagen vascular disease
    4. Associated with human immunodeficiency virus
    5. Associated with appetite suppressant/other drug or toxin use
  6. Subject must have started Tyvaso ≥3 months prior to the Baseline Visit and must currently be on a stable regimen (no change in dose within 30 days of Baseline Visit) of Tyvaso (6 to 12 breaths QID).
  7. Baseline 6MWD ≥150 m.
  8. If currently receiving other approved background therapy (eg, endothelin receptor antagonist or phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor or both), the subject must be on a stable dose with no additions or discontinuations for a minimum of 30 days prior to Screening.
