Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   42758   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).


    Phase 1 trials conducted solely in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To assess the long-term safety and tolerability of BAY63-2521 in treatment naive patients and patients pretreated with an Endothelin Receptor Antagonist or a Prostacycline Analogue with symptomatic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).
    Protection of trial subjects
    The conduct of this clinical study met all local legal and regulatory requirements. The study was conducted in accordance with ethical principles that have their origin in the Declaration of Helsinki and the International Council for Harmonization guideline E6: Good Clinical Practice. Before entering the study, the informed consent was read by and explained to all the subjects/legal representatives. Participating subjects/legal representatives signed informed consent form and could withdraw from the study at any time without any disadvantage and without having to provide a reason for this decision. The assent of a minor was also requested where such a person was able to express his own will. His refusal or the withdrawal of his consent was not to be disregarded. Only investigators qualified by training and experience were selected as appropriate experts to investigate the study drug.

    Study was conducted at 97 centers in 27 countries between 12-MAR-2009 (first subject first visit) and 19-AUG-2019 (last subject last visit);

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    Of the 405 subjects who completed PATENT-1 study, 396 subjects entered PATENT-2 study. 231 subjects were from the former riociguat 1.0-2.5mg group, 109 were from the former placebo group and 56 were from the former riociguat 1.0-1.5mg group.

    Dosage and administration details
    Subjects from the riociguat 1.0-2.5 mg individual dose titration group of PATENT-1 entered the extension study on the same dose level as they received on the last day of PATENT-1. These subjects received sham titration during the titration phase of PATENT-2. To maintain the blinding of PATENT-1, the PATENT-2 study medication (open-label riociguat) was blinded with respect to the dose during the titration phase, and investigators did not know at which dose level a subject entered the PATENT-2 study. The individual dose was not increased above the dose received on the last day of PATENT-1. If the investigator requested a dose increase above that level via the IVRS, the subject received a sham titration. However, if the investigator requested a dose decrease, dose modifications were possible.

    Subjects from the placebo group of the PATENT-1 study started at Visit 1 of the PATENT-2 study with a riociguat dose of 1.0 mg tid and were up-titrated in a blinded manner. The individual riociguat dose was titrated every 2weeks according to the peripheral SBP measured at trough before intake of the next morning dose. At the end of the titration phase, subjects reached riociguat doses between 0.5mg tid and 2.5mg tid.

    Dosage and administration details
    Subjects from the PATENT-1 riociguat 1.0-1.5mg group entered the extension study PATENT-2 on the same dose level as they received on the last day of PATENT-1. For subjects with a starting dose of 1.5mg riociguat tid in PATENT-2, the individual optimal riociguat dose was to be determined every 2 weeks according to the peripheral SBP measured at trough before intake of the next morning dose. At the end of the titration phase, subjects reached riociguat doses between 0.5mg tid and 2.5mg tid. For subjects with a starting dose of 1.0mg or 0.5mg riociguat tid in PATENT-2, the dose was not to be further increased until Visit5. If the investigator requested a dose increase above that level via the IVRS, the subject underwent a sham titration. However, if the investigator requested a dose decrease, dose modifications were possible, but without a subsequent re-increase before Visit5. Subjects who did not tolerate the lowest riociguat dose (0.5mg tid) were to be withdrawn from the study.

    Percentage of subjects per treatment group with a treatment-emergent shift in clinical chemistry parameters from normal or low at baseline to a high value at a timepoint after the start of treatment. The percentage was calculated by comparing the number of subjects with a normal or low value at baseline who had at least one high value after the start of treatment with the number of subjects with a normal or low value at baseline who also had at least one valid value after start of treatment. A termination visit was only to be performed in the case of premature termination of study medication or if the sponsor announced the official end of the study.

    Change in Pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR)
    End point description
    Pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) was measured only if right-heart catheterization was performed as part of a regular diagnostic work-up. A termination visit was only to be performed in the case of premature termination of study medication or if the sponsor announced the official end of the study.

    Change in World Health Organization (WHO) functional class
    End point description
    The subject's functional class was determined according to the WHO classification: I: Subjects with PH but without resulting limitation of physical activity. Ordinary physical activity does not cause undue dyspnea or fatigue, chest pain, or near syncope. II: Subjects with PH resulting in slight limitation of physical activity. They are comfortable at rest. Ordinary physical activity causes undue dyspnea or fatigue, chest pain, or near syncope. III: Subjects with PH resulting in marked limitation of physical activity. They are comfortable at rest. Less than ordinary activity causes undue dyspnea or fatigue, chest pain, or near syncope. IV: Subjects with PH with inability to carry out any physical activity without symptoms. These participants manifest signs of right-heart failure. Dyspnea and/or fatigue may even be present at rest. Discomfort is increased by any physical activity.

    The EQ-5D is a standardized instrument for use as a measure of health outcome. The EQ-5D is a self report questionnaire. The utility score is calculated based on five questions concerning problems with mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression. An increase in the utility score represents an improvement in quality of life. The score ranges from -0.594 (worst answer in all five questions) to 1 (best answer in all five questions).
