Authors' objectives:

The main objective of this report was to review the scientific evidence available on the efficacy, safety and efficiency of ambrisentan for the treatment of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension and to define indication criteria in the Public Hospital Utilisation Network of Catalonia.

Authors' recommendations: After assessing the available information, ambrisentan is considered a drug comparable to other currently commercialised endothelin receptor antagonists because, given that there are no other studies that compare it with these drugs, it cannot be concluded that its efficacy or safety are inferior.
