Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate whether IV sildenafil can reduce the time on inhaled nitric oxide treatment and reduce the failure rate of available treatments for persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn.

Estimated Enrollment : 64 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multi-centre, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind, Two-armed, Parallel Group Study To Evaluate Efficacy And Safety Of Iv Sildenafil In The Treatment Of Neonates With Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension Of The Newborn (Pphn) Or Hypoxic Respiratory Failure And At Risk For Pphn, With A Long Term Follow-up Investigation Of Developmental Progress 12 And 24 Months After Completion Of Study Treatment

Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: placebo
iv placebo of normal saline or 10% dextrose
Drug: placebo
IV placebo or 0.9% sodium chloride or 10% dextrose. Infusion rate based on weight.

Experimental: sildenafil
Active study drug
Drug: iv sildenafil
loading dose of 0.1 mg/kg over 30 minutes followed by maintenance dose of 0.03 mg/kg/h. To infuse minimum 48 hours and maximum of 14 days.
Other Name: revatio




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time on inhaled nitric oxide treatment after initiation of iv study drug [ Time Frame: Day 14 or hospital discharge ]
  2. Treatment failure rate, defined as need for additional treatment targeting persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. [ Time Frame: day 14 or hospital discharge ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to final weaning of mechanical ventilation for persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn [ Time Frame: Day 14 or hospital discharge ]
  2. Time from initiation of study drug to treatment failure [ Time Frame: Day 14 or hospital discharge ]
  3. Change in oxygenation parameters at 6, 12, and 24 hours from baseline [ Time Frame: Day 14 or hospital discharge ]
  4. Sildenafil plasma concentrations and corresponding PK parameters [ Time Frame: Day 14 or hospital discharge ]
  5. Safety parameters: incidence and severity of adverse events and abnormal laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: Day 14 or hospital discharge ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Developmental progress of subjects as assessed by Bayley Scales of Infant Development and Behavior Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Months 12 and 24 after completion of study treatment ]
    Bayley Scales of Infant Development is a standard series of measurements to assess motor (fine and gross), language (expressive and comprehensive), and cognitive development of infants and toddlers, ages 0-3 years. Bayley Questionnaire for Parent/Caregiver is used to assess Social-Emotional and Adaptive Behavior development of toddlers, ages 0-3 years

  2. Safety, assessed by adverse events and survival [ Time Frame: At 12 and 24 months after completion of study treatment ]
  3. Neurological progress of subjects as assessed by the Neurology Optimality Score, also known as the Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination [ Time Frame: Months 12 and 24 after end of study treatment ]
    The Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination is a standard scoring examination to assess development of cranial nerve, posture, movement, tone, reflexes and reaction, and global neurological status, ages 0-18 months

  4. Visual status of subjects as assessed by eye examinations of the anterior and posterior segments [ Time Frame: Months 12 and 24 after completion of study treatment. ]
    Standard age-appropriate ophthalmological examinations will be used to assess general eye status, visual acuity (with Teller cards and fix and follow), pupil response and fundus examination, and refraction measured.

  5. Audiological status of subjects as assessed by Physiological and Behavioral tests [ Time Frame: Months 12 and 24 after completion of study treatment ]
    Standard developmentally appropriate audiological examinations suited to the individual subject will be used to assess auditory system function (physical tests: tympanometry, acoustic reflex, otoacoustic emissions) and hearing sensitivity (behavioral test: visual reinforcement audiometry)
