About TRIUMPH-1

TRIUMPH-1 (TReprostinil Sodium Inhalation Used in the Management of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension), was a randomized, double-blind, placebo- controlled trial of patients with severe PAH, a chronic, life-threatening illness. The study population consisted of 235 patients who were optimized on an approved oral therapy for PAH, either bosentan (Tracleer), an endothelin receptor antagonist, or sildenafil (Revatio), a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor. The primary efficacy endpoint of the trial was the change in six-minute walk distance at 12 weeks measured at peak exposure, defined by the trial protocol as 10-60 minutes after inhalation of Viveta, relative to baseline.
