Completed  Studies

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension/ Parenchymal Lung Disease:

TITLE:  A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Inhaled Treprostinil in Subjects with Pulmonary Hypertension due to Parenchymal Lung Disease


This study is investigating a medicine called inhaled treprostinil (brand name Tyvaso®).  In this form, inhaled treprostinil or placebo will be referred to as “study drug.”  Placebo is made to look exactly like inhaled treprostinil but does not contain the active ingredient (treprostinil).  Instead, it will pass through your body without affecting your symptoms of PH or any other body system.  The study drug is given by inhaling (breathing in) the medicine into your lungs using a machine called a nebulizer (inhaling device).  The nebulizer changes the medicine into a mist for you to breathe into your lungs.

Inhaled Treprostinil works by keeping the pulmonary arteries open and working properly so there is less strain on the heart.

Protocol E2006-G000-303

Title:   This is a long-term (approximately 1 year), multicenter, randomized, controlled, double-blind, parallel group study of two doses of lemborexant and placebo in approximately 900 male or female participants with insomnia disorder. Approximately 40% of participants will be age 65 years or older. The study will last a maximum of 59 weeks and will include a Screening Period, an approximately 54-week Treatment Period (during which study medication will be administered), and a 2-week Follow-up Period. All participants will receive lemborexant for at least 6 months and will receive placebo at some point during the study. Participants will not know which medication they receive (lemborexant or placebo), and will not know the timings at which the medication will change.
