A Study of the Efficacy and Safety of MK-5475 in Participants with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Population: Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in adults ages 18-75 years old (inclusive)

Start Date: May 19, 2021

End Date: February 9, 2026

Phase: Phase 2/Phase 3

Institution: Multi-center

The INSIGNIA-PAH Clinical Trial will test an investigational drug in adults ages 18 to 75 who have pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). PAH is a type of high blood pressure that affects arteries in the lungs and the right side of the heart. This clinical trial is comparing the investigational drug with a placebo, both of which are a dry powder. A placebo looks like the investigational trial drug but does not contain any active medicine. You will breathe the powder into your lungs from your mouth through an inhaler.

Researchers want to:

  • Learn about the safety of the investigational drug and how well participants tolerate side effects associated with the investigational drug
  • Find the dose of the investigational drug that should be given to participants

The trial has four parts: screening (up to 4 weeks long), trial treatment base period (about 12 weeks long), an optional trial treatment extension period and participants will receive the trial drug (about 2 years long), and a follow up phone call (about 2 weeks after you stop taking the trial drug).

A Phase 2/3 trial: Currently this study is enrolling our Phase 2 part of the trial. In Phase 2, we will research the investigational drug to determine the appropriate amount of drug to give to participants.

The Phase 3 part of the trial is not currently enrolling. Phase 3 clinical trials compare the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drug against the current standard treatment. Each phase of this trial includes a Base Period and an Extension Period.

There is a lot to consider when deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial. Any clinical trial includes risks, which the study doctor will review with you. Make sure you understand the risks before participating.
