The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) provides this tool to help participants learn more about research ongoing in PH. Use the filters below to narrow the search results to fit your personal needs. Each listing describes current research, who qualifies to participate, and whom to contact for information.
No personal information can be collected through this tool. The information presented on the PHA Clinical Trials page has been obtained directly from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). PHA recommends that you use the information in this resource to begin a conversation with your PH specialist about whether or not participating in research is right for you.

[18F]FES PET/CT in PAH
In this study positron emission tomography (PET/CT) imaging will be used to evaluate evaluation of estrogen receptor heterogeneity and functionality in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) using the investigational radiotracer [18F]fluoroestradiol (FES).
4DFlow Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension Associated With Congenital Heart Disease
Congenital heart disease is the most common congenital anomaly. The life expectancy of children with congenital heart disease has increased considerably in recent years. Nevertheless, the evolution of these patients is marked by an increased risk of complications. Arrhythmias, heart failure, pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and endocarditis may be promoted by the absence or delay of management in childhood, by residual lesions or post-operative cardiac scars and by the presence of prosthetic materials. PAH is a common complication of congenital heart disease, especially in non-operated shunts. PAH corresponds to an increase in...
ABI-009, an mTOR Inhibitor, for Patients With Severe Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
mTOR activation has been shown to be relevant in the development and progression of pulmonary hypertension. Inhibition of mTOR has been shown to reverse or regress pulmonary hypertension in animal models. ABI-009 is an albumin-bound mTOR inhibitor with improved penetration in lung tissue.
A Clinical Study to Find Out if Macitentan is Effective and Safe in Japanese Patients With Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH).
The endothelin receptor antagonist macitentan showed significant improvement compared with placebo in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and 6-minute walking distance (6MWD) in inoperable CTEPH patients in the phase II MERIT-1 trial (AC-055E201, NCT02021292). However, in the MERIT-1 trial Japanese patients were not included. Therefore, in line with Japan's medical environment, this phase III study is to confirm the efficacy and safety of macitentan in Japanese CTEPH patients.
A Clinical Study to Investigate the Long-term Safety of the Drug Macitentan in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Who Were Previously Treated With Macitentan in Clinical Studies.
The aim of the trial is to study the long-term safety of macitentan and to provide continued treatment with macitentan to patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) who were previously treated with macitentan in clinical studies.
A Comparative Study of Three Modes of Ventilation During CPB in Pediatrics With Pulmonary Hypertension Undergoing Congenital Heart Surgeries
Aim of Work: The aim of this randomized, double-blinded, study is to compare between three modes of ventilation during cardiopulmonary bypass in pediatric patients with pulmonary hypertension undergoing corrective cardiac surgeries. Hypothesis: The hypothesis of the present study is that high frequency low volume positive pressure ventilation is better than continous positive airway pressure (CPAP)and passive deflation on direct PAP (pulmonary artery pressure ) reading and immediate oxygenation after cardiopulmonary bypass CPB in pediatric patients undergoing cardiac surgeries for congenital heart defects.
ACT-293987 in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Long-term, single-arm, multicenter, open-label extension, Phase 3 study, to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ACT-293987 in patients with PAH who participated in the double-blind study AC-065A302 (GRIPHON)
Actigraphy in Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension
Physical activity is an important factor in understanding how diseases can affect a child. Decreases in physical activity are sometimes the first thing that happens before a child is diagnosed with a disease. When a child sees their doctor, that visit reflects a single point in time. It does not capture how a child feels during the days in between visits to their doctor. This study plans to use special monitors called actigraphs to collect information about physical activity in children with a type of disease called pulmonary hypertension. This study will measure how active these children are and compare their activity to clinical ...
Activity Monitoring in Pulmonary Hypertension
This is a prospective, longitudinal, observational study of free-living activity trackers and patient reported outcomes to test the hypothesis that daily activity will have stronger prognostic value than 6MWD in patients with pulmonary hypertension after 12 weeks.
Acute Decompensation of Pulmonary Hypertension
The main objective of this study is to analyze the survival of a cohort of patients admitted for acute decompensation of pulmonary arterial hypertension or postembolic pulmonary hypertension and to establish the prognostic value of biomarkers.
