clinical failure by 50 percent compared to the pooled ambrisentan and
tadalafil monotherapy arm (hazard ratio = 0.502; 95 percent CI: 0.348,
0.724; p=0.0002). The combination was also statistically significant
versus the individual ambrisentan and tadalafil monotherapy groups for
the primary endpoint (p<0.01). Rates of serious adverse events and
events leading to discontinuation were similar across treatment arms.
