The Company, in consultation with the FDA, has finalized the key elements of its planned pivotal Phase 3 study, including the use of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) as the primary endpoint for approval, the patient population of pulmonary fibrosis subjects at risk of PH, as well as the dose of iNO45 (45 mcg/kg IBW/hr). Importantly, the primary endpoint, patient population, and the iNO45 dose have recently been evaluated in a Phase 2 clinical trial in which iNO45 achieved a statistically significant improvement (p=0.02) in MVPA versus placebo.
“We are very pleased with the alignment reached with the FDA on the design of our pivotal Phase 3 trial which allows us to move confidently towards the initiation of this important study,” said
