COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Summary
Brief summary
The study evaluates the effect of macitentan on right ventricular and hemodynamic properties
in patients with symptomatic pulmonary arterial hypertension. Patients are treated with
macitentan for 1 year. Patients undergo right heart catheterization (RHC) at baseline and
Week 26. They also undergo cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at baseline, Week 26 and
Week 52. Safety is monitored throughout the study. The study has three stub-studies. Each
patient can participate in no sub-study or in one sub-study. The sub-studies are: (1)
metabolism sub-study (with PET-MR scans); (2) biopsy sub-study (biopsies taken during the
RHC); (3) Echo sub-study.
