Riociguat Clinical Trials for Pulmonary Hypertension
In this webcast shared by the American College of Cardiology, we find out more about the use of riociguat for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension (PH).
Dr. Chris Cannon discusses two studies, CHEST-1 and PATENT-1, of pulmonary hypertension patients and found that those who were taking riociguat showed significant improvement over those taking a placebo. The first study, PATENT-1, covered 443 patients and showed improvement in the six-minute walk test by an average of 36 meters and an improvement in pulmonary vascular resistance. The second clinical trial, CHEST-1, covered 261 patients and saw a 46-meter improvement in the six-minute walk test and similar improvement in pulmonary vascular resistance.
