Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2, multicenter, open-label extension (OLE) of study CXA-10-301, to evaluate the long term safety and efficacy of daily dosing of CXA-10.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
PAH Drug: CXA-10 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 2, multicenter, open-label extension (OLE) of study CXA-10-301, to evaluate the long term safety and efficacy of daily dosing of CXA-10.

The study will be performed in approximately 50 study centers across the United States and the United Kingdom, which participated in CXA-10-301. Approximately 96 subjects who completed treatment in CXA-10-301 will be eligible to participate in this OLE study, after completing all Visit 9 (Day 1 and Day 2) assessments in CXA-10-301.

Study participation for each subject will last up to approximately 6.5 months. The study will consist of a 6 month open-label treatment period and require 5 clinic visits and 1 telephone visit, including the Baseline Visit completed simultaneously with Visit 9 CXA-10-301, plus a follow-up visit approximately 2 weeks following the last dose of CXA-10.

  6. Women of childbearing potential and males with partners of childbearing potential must agree to use a reliable method of contraception while taking study medication.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Severe hypotension defined by systolic blood pressure <90 mmHg from sitting blood pressure measurement at Baseline.
  2. Hypertensive defined by >160 mmHg systolic or >110 mmHg diastolic from sitting blood pressure measurement at Baseline.
  3. QTcF on supine ECGs at Baseline (Visit 1) of >500 msec.
  4. Acute myocardial infarction or acute coronary syndrome (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction [STEMI], Non STEMI [NSTEMI] and or unstable angina) within the last 90 days prior to Baseline.
  5. Recent cerebrovascular accident/transient ischemic attack (CVA/TIA) within the last 90 days prior to Baseline.
  6. Recent hospitalization for left heart failure within the last 90 days prior to Baseline.
  7. Clinically significant aortic or mitral valve disease defined as greater than mild regurgitation or mild stenosis; pericardial constriction; restrictive or constrictive cardiomyopathy; left ventricular dysfunction (LVEF < 50%); left ventricular outflow obstruction; symptomatic coronary artery disease; autonomic hypotension; or fluid depletion, in the opinion of the investigator.
  8. Chronic atrial fibrillation and life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias.
  9. Personal or family history of congenital prolonged QTc syndrome or sudden unexpected death due to a cardiac reason.

    27. Cardiovascular, liver, renal, hematologic, gastrointestinal, immunologic, endocrine, metabolic, central nervous system or psychiatric disease that, in the opinion of the investigator, may adversely affect the safety of the subject and/or efficacy of the investigational product or severely limit the lifespan of the subject other than the condition being studied.

    28. Clinically significant hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism not adequately treated.

    29. Any other condition and/or situation that causes the Investigator to deem a subject unsuitable for the study (e.g., due to expected study medication non- compliance, inability to medically tolerate the study procedures, or a subject's unwillingness to comply with study-related procedures).

    30. Known hypersensitivity to CXA-10, the metabolites, or formulation excipients.
