Summary

Multicenter, Open-label, Non-comparative, Proof-of-concept, Phase 2a Study to Evaluate the Effect of a Single Infusion of Tezosentan on Pulmonary Vascular Resistance in Patients With Stable, Chronic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, Currently Not Treated With Endothelin Receptor Antagonists, Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors or Prostacyclines

Clinical Details

Official title: Multicenter, Open-label, Non-comparative, Proof-of-concept, Phase 2a Study to Evaluate the Effect of a Single Infusion of Tezosentan on Pulmonary Vascular Resistance in Patients With Stable, Chronic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, Currently Not Treated With Endothelin Receptor Antagonists, Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors or Prostacyclines

Study design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change in PVR from Baseline to 30 minutes expresses as percent of the Baseline value.

Secondary outcome:

Change in mean right arterial pressure (mRAP) from Baseline to 30 minutes

Change in mPAP from Baseline to 30 min

Change in total pulmonary resistance (TPR) from Baseline to 30 min

Change in PCWP from Baseline to 30 min

Change in cardiac output (CO) from Baseline to 30 min

Change in cardiac index (CI) from Baseline to 30 min
