  Purpose

As monotherapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) begins to fail additional therapies are introduced. Although co-administration of sitaxsentan and sildenafil is well tolerated the controlled safety/efficacy database of the combination is limited.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Clinical Worsening (TTCW) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24 or Early Termination (ET) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Clinical worsening defined as time between first dose of study drug and occurrence of death; or heart-lung/lung transplant; or hospitalization for worsening pulmonary atrial hypertension (PAH); or atrial septostomy; or withdrawal due to addition of chronic medications for treatment of worsening PAH: prostacyclin/prostacyclin analogues/phosphodiesterase-5inhibitors/alternative endothelin receptor antagonists/intravenous inotropes; or increase of calcium channel blockers or oxygen. TTCW measured as duration between study's first dose date in and date when first clinical worsening event occurs.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the Total Distance Walked During 6 Minute Walk Distance (6MWD) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Weeks 12 and 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    6 MWD was the distance that a participant could walk in 6 minutes. Participants were asked to perform the test at a pace that was comfortable to them, with as many breaks as they needed. Continuous pulse oximetry was conducted during the test for safety. Change from baseline = score at Week x - score at baseline.

  • Change From Baseline in World Health Organization (WHO) Functional Class in Participants With PAH at Weeks 12, 24, 48 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24 or ET ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    WHO PAH Functional Classification of physical activity limitations: I (no limitation), II (slight limitation), III (marked limitations, comfortable at rest) and IV (unable to carry out any physical activity without symptoms). The change from baseline in WHO class was classified as Improved (decrease in functional class), No Change (functional class stayed the same), and Worsened (functional class increased). The change from baseline in WHO functional class at Week X was summarized with frequency count and percentage in each category based on imputed data for missing values at Week X.

  • Change in 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) From Baseline at Weeks 12, 24 and 48 - Physical Functioning Domain [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24 and ET ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    SF-36 is a standardized survey evaluating 8 aspects of functional health and well being: physical and social functioning, physical and emotional role limitations, bodily pain, general health, vitality, mental health. The score for a section is an average of the individual question scores, which are scaled 0-100 (100=highest level of functioning). Change from baseline = Physical Functioning score at Week x minus score at baseline.
