Further review and analysis of the TRIUMPH-1 preliminary results are ongoing. Full data from TRIUMPH-1 will be presented at an upcoming medical meeting and will also be available through the publication of peer-reviewed journal articles.
Viveta is an investigational therapy that has not yet been determined safe or efficacious in humans. Viveta is an inhaled formulation of treprostinil. Treprostinil is a stable synthetic form of prostacyclin. Following regulatory approvals, Viveta will be co-promoted by United Therapeutics' commercialization group, based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, and Lung Rx's pulmonary division, based in Silver Spring, Maryland. It is estimated that there are approximately 6,000 physicians in the United States who currently treat their patients with Tracleer and/or Revatio, and such physicians may be able to supplement those treatments with Viveta following regulatory approval.
