Effects of RT234 on Exercise Parameters Accessed by CPET in Subjects With PAH

2020-02-16 17:40:47 | BioPortfolio


The objectives of this study are to evaluate the effects of RT234 on exercise parameters assessed by a specialized exercise test (Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test or CPET) in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).


Consequences of pulmonary arterial hypertension are significant limitations in cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), exercise capacity, as well as profound dyspnea with physical exertion. The objective of the present study is to assess the ability of a single inhaled dose of RT234 to acutely improve primary CPET measures of CRF and exercise capacity, and to lower the sensation of dyspnea with physical exertion compared to baseline CPET measures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A device that delivers medication to the lungs in the form of a dry powder.

A medical device used to ensure the proper amount of medication is delivered for inhalation. Usually, it is a small aerosol canister placed in a plastic holder. When the canister is pressed, a calibrated amount of drug is released.

Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.

Method of using a polycrystalline powder and Rietveld refinement (LEAST SQUARES ANALYSIS) of X-RAY DIFFRACTION or NEUTRON DIFFRACTION. It circumvents the difficulties of producing single large crystals.

Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)
