Study Design in PAH/SSD1

These results are from a 12-week, prospective, open-label, randomized trial. Except for 5 NYHA Functional Class II patients, all patients were either Functional Class III or IV. In this clinical trial, patients received chronic continuous infusions of epoprostenol plus conventional therapy (n=56) or conventional therapy alone (n=55). Conventional therapy could include anticoagulants, oral vasodilators, supplemental oxygen, digoxin, and/or diuretics.
