Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- BMI > 18.5 kg/m2;

- Symptomatic pulmonary hypertension WHO/NYHA FC class II and III;

- WHO Group I PAH associated with connective tissue disease;

- Had a diagnostic right heart catheterization performed and documented within 36 months
prior to Day 1 that confirmed a diagnosis of PAH according to all the following
criteria:

- Mean pulmonary artery pressure = 25 mm Hg (at rest);

- Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) = 15 mm Hg;

- Pulmonary vascular resistance > 240 dyn.sec/cm5 or > 3 mm Hg/liter (L)/minute;

- Has BNP level = 400 pg/mL;

- Had an average 6MWD = 150 meters on two consecutive tests performed on different days
prior to randomization, with both tests measuring within 15% of one another;

- Has been receiving no more than two (2) approved disease-specific PAH therapies. PAH
therapy must have been at a stable dose for at least 90 days prior to Day 1. No
additions or changes should be made to PAH therapies and doses should remain stable
for the duration of the study;

- Has maintained a stable dose for 30 days prior to Day 1 if receiving any of the
following therapies that may affect PAH: vasodilators (including calcium channel
blockers), digoxin, L-arginine supplementation, or oxygen supplementation. No
additions or changes should be made to therapies and doses should remain stable for
the duration of the study;

- If receiving treatment for CTD with prednisone or any other drugs, doses must remain
stable for at least 30 days prior to Day 1 and for the duration of the study Had
pulmonary function tests (PFTs) within 90 days prior to Day 1 with total lung capacity
= 65% (predicted);

- Had a ventilation-perfusion (V/Q) lung scan, spiral/helical/electron beam computed
tomography (CT), or pulmonary angiogram prior to Day 1 that shows no evidence of
thromboembolic disease (i.e., should note normal or low probability for pulmonary
embolism). If V/Q scan was abnormal (i.e., results other than normal or low
probability), then a confirmatory CT or selective pulmonary angiography must exclude
chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension;

- Has adequate kidney function defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)
= 45 mL/min/1.73 m2 as measured by the central lab;

- Willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests,
and other study procedures;

- Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document indicating that
the patient (or a legally acceptable representative) has been informed of all
pertinent aspects of the study prior to initiation of any patient-mandated procedures

products being tested or used in a way different from the approved form or when used
for an unapproved indication within 30 days prior to Day 1;

- Initiation of an exercise program for cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation within 90 days
prior to Day 1 or planned initiation during the study;

- Stopped receiving any PAH chronic therapy within 60 days prior to Day 1;

- Received a dose of prednisone > 20 mg/day (or equivalent dose if other corticosteroid)

partners of childbearing potential and females of childbearing potential) during
screening, while taking study drug, and for at least 30 days after the last dose of
study drug is ingested;

- Use of inhaled nitric oxide within 7 days prior to Screening and Day 1 visits,
excluding acute vasodilator testing during diagnostic cardiac catheterization;

- Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding;

- Any disability or impairment that would prohibit performance of the 6MWT;

patient at risk by trial enrollment;

- Patient is, in the opinion of the investigator, unable to comply with the requirements
of the study protocol or is unsuitable for the study for any reason;

- Known hypersensitivity to any component of the study drug;
