A Long-Term Extension, Multi-Center Safety Study of AV-101 in Subjects With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) Who Have Completed Study AV-101-002 (IMPAHCT-FUL)

This is a long-term extension (LTE) follow up study where recruitment of subjects will continue as the parent study (AV-101-002) progresses from Phase 2b to Phase 3. Subjects who were on placebo in Phase 2b and the Intermediate Part of the study who enroll in the LTE study will be re-randomized to one of the 3 active AV-101 doses until such time as the optimal dose has been selected. Once the optimal dose of AV-101 has been selected, all subjects will be transitioned to the optimal dose while they continue in the LTE, and subjects completing the Intermediate Part or parent study Phase 3 will enroll into the LTE study at the optimal dose.
