    E.1.2Term Pulmonary hypertension
    E.1.2System Organ Class 10038738 - Respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess the clinical value of using intravenous iron (ferric carboxymaltose) infusion in iron deficient patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension.

    The primary endpoint will be the change in the resistance to blood flow through the lungs (resting pulmonary vascular resistance), measured by cardiac catheterisation at baseline and 12 weeks after the initial infusion.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    It is possible that iron may have beneficial effects via mechanisms not directly related to the blood flow through the lungs. Capturing other data, particularly exercise capacity, on the study participants is therefore essential. These non-invasive tests will be repeated to detect evidence of early benefit (at 2 weeks) as well as to follow serial changes in exercise capacity and iron status (at 12, 14, and 24 weeks after the initial infusion).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    We have carefully chosen the following entry criteria to clearly define our study group and reduce the potential for variation.

    1. Males or females aged between 16–75 years old
    2. PAH which is idiopathic, heritable or associated with anorexogens.
    3. Iron deficiency as defined by any one of the following criteria:
    sTfR levels > 28.1 nmol/l (where sTfR analysis is available) or one of the following: Ferritin < 37 ug/l; transferrin saturations < 16.4%; iron < 10.3 umol/l.
    4*. Documented diagnosis of PAH by right heart catheterisation performed at any time prior to Screening showing: resting mean pulmonary artery pressure >25mmHg, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure =/< 15 mm Hg and normal or reduced cardiac output.
    5. Six minute walking distance greater than 150m at entry;
    6. Stable on an unchanged PAH therapeutic regime (any combination of endothelin receptor antagonist, phosphodiesterase inhibitor or prostacyclin analogue) for at least 1 month.
    7. Able to provide written informed consent prior to any study-mandated procedures.
    8. Female subjects of child-bearing potential are eligible to participate if they agree to use one of the following contraception methods:
    - Abstinence
    - Contraceptive methods with a failure rate of < 1%:
    - Oral contraceptive, either combined or progestogen alone;
    - Injectable progestogen;
    - Implants of levonorgestrel;
    - Estrogenic vaginal ring;
    - Percutaneous contraceptive patches;
    - Intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS) that meets the <1% failure rate as stated in the product label;
    - Male partner(s) sterilization (vasectomy with documentation of azoospermia) prior to the female subject's entry into the study;
    - Double barrier method: condom and occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) plus vaginal spermicidal agent (foam/gel/film/cream/suppository).

    *Patients who have not had a cardiac catheterisation prior to screening, but meet all other inclusion/exclusion criteria will be considered for the study if the clinical diagnosis is in keeping with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH). Inclusion of such patients should be discussed with the CI. These patients will be excluded at baseline if during the right heart catheterisation (RHC) the following criteria are not met: resting mean pulmonary artery pressure > 25mm Hg, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure =/< 15 mm Hg and normal or reduced cardiac output.

    3. Haemoglobin concentration <10 g/dl.
    4. Patients who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded:
    Iron>27 umol/L, Ferritin>300 ug/L or Transferrin saturations >45%
    5. Patients with moderate to severe hypophosphatemia as defined as <0.65mmol/L

    11. Females who are lactating or pregnant.
    12. Individuals known to have HIV, Hepatitis B or C or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
    13. Known hypersensitivity to Ferinject® or any of its excipients.

If clinical need dictates, patients may receive further doses of ferric carboxymaltose, as appropriate to their level of iron deficiency, once the study has been completed.
