Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA) announced today the initiation of dosing in a Phase 1 multiple dose clinical trial of APD811, a novel oral drug candidate discovered by Arena that targets the prostacyclin (IP) receptor for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).

This randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled dose titration trial is planned to enroll up to 30 healthy adult volunteers, and will evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of multiple-ascending doses of APD811 and the optimal titration schedule. Arena previously evaluated single-ascending doses of APD811 in the initial Phase 1 clinical trial.
