  Purpose

This is a prospective, randomized, parallel group study to assess the hemodynamic effect of three different dose regimens of a sustained release (SR) tablet of UT-15C in patients with exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension (PH), as measured by the change in peak total pulmonary resistance index (TPRI) during exercise from Baseline to Week 12.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The hemodynamic effect of three different dose regimens of UT-15C SR in patients with exercise-induced PH, as measured by the change in peak total pulmonary resistance index (TPRI) during exercise from Baseline to Week 12. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The effect of three different dose regimens of UT-15C SR on additional hemodynamic parameters. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The effect of different doses of UT-15C SR on the 6-minute walk distance and Borg dyspnea score. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes from Baseline in Symptoms of PH will be summarized and compared between treatment groups. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes from Baseline in WHO functional class will be summarized and compared between treatment groups. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The correlation of treprostinil plasma concentrations and response (i.e., hemodynamics or 6MWD) of UT-15C. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The impact of UT-15C SR on N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) concentrations. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The safety of three different dose regimens of UT-15C SR will be assessed via physical examination, clinical laboratory and vital sign parameters, 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) findings, and pulmonary function tests (PFT), and adverse event reporting. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Detailed Description:

Prospective, randomized, parallel group study with two periods: a 10 week, dose titration period, followed by a 2 week, dose maintenance period in patients with exercise-induced PH.

The study population will be randomized into Dose Group 1, Dose Group 2, or an Individual Maximum Tolerated Dose (iMTD) of UT-15C SR by Week 10 and maintained through Week 12. Patients may be either currently receiving an approved oral background therapy for their PH (phosphodiesterase-5 [PDE-5] inhibitor, OR endothelin receptor antagonist [ERA]) (no dual background therapy), or not currently receiving therapy for PH.
