Bayer Submits New Drug Application for Riociguat for the Treatment of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Persistent/Recurrent Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension
Date:2/11/2013

atients with inoperable CTEPH or with persistent or recurrent CTEPH after PEA were randomized and treated with either riociguat or placebo orally for 16 weeks. The primary endpoint of the trial was improvement in 6-minute walking distance. Riociguat was titrated, over a period of eight weeks in doses of 0.5 mg increments, from 1.0 mg up to 2.5 mg, three times a day. After the titration phase, patients were followed up for another eight weeks on their last dose to complete CHEST-1. Patients from both arms then had the option of participating in the open label extension study (CHEST-2) after completing an eight-week blinded sham titration. CHEST-2 is continuing to investigate riociguat in CTEPH patients.  Results of CHEST-2 will be presented at an upcoming scientific congress in 2013.
