Apabetalone for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: a Pilot Study
The main OBJECTIVE of this proposal is to extend the investigator's preclinical findings on the role of epigenetics and DNA damage and Bromodomain-Containing Protein 4 (BRD4) inhibition as a therapy for a devastating disease, pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). There is strong evidence that BRD4 plays a key role in the pathological phenotype in PAH accounting for disease progression and that BRD4 inhibition can reverse PAH in several animal models. Intriguingly, coronary artery disease (CAD) and metabolic syndrome are more prevalent in PAH compared with the global population, suggesting a link between these diseases. Interestingly, BRD4...
A Phase 3 Adaptive Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Inhaled Treprostinil in Patients With PH Due to COPD
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 30-week, adaptive cross-over study, with a Treatment Period of approximately 26 weeks under the Original Design or, if applicable, a 17-week parallel study, with a Treatment Period of approximately 14 weeks under the Contingent Design.
A Registry for Patients Taking Uptravi
This is a US multi-center, prospective, real world, observational drug registry enrolling patients actively treated with Uptravi. Participating patients will be followed prospectively for a maximum of 18 months from the date of enrollment into the registry.
Arrhythmias in Pulmonary Hypertension Assessed by Continuous Long-term Cardiac Monitoring
Arrhythmias are considered a prominent phenomenon in pulmonary hypertension (PH) as the disease progresses. According primarily to retrospective studies with up to 24 hours of monitoring, supraventricular tachycardias (SVT) can be found in 8-35% of patients, with significant impact on survival. Furthermore, a few prospective studies to date deploying short-term monitoring (10 minutes-24 hours) have revealed lower heart rate variability (HRV) in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). In ASPIRE arrhythmias and heart rate variability is being assessed via long term monitoring.
A Safety and Efficacy Study of Pulsed Inhaled Nitric Oxide (iNO) in Subjects At Risk of Pulmonary Hypertension Associated With Pulmonary Fibrosis
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dose escalation and verification study to assess the safety and efficacy of pulsed iNO versus placebo in subjects at risk for pulmonary hypertension associated with pulmonary fibrosis on long term oxygen therapy.
Assessment of Blood Coagulation Disorders in Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension
The objective of the present study is to assess blood coagulation disorders in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension. The investigators aim to evaluate any possible coagulation abnormalities related to the patients' primary disease and any possible effects the pulmonary hypertension- specific therapy may have on hemostasis.
Assessment of Continuous Measurement of Transcutaneous CO2 for Evaluation of Alveolar Dead Space During Exercise
The study aim is to monitor, during exercise tests carried out in various conditions, the alveolar dead space, by means of continuous transcutaneous measurement of Pt CO2, which would be used as a surrogate for arterial PaCO2. Validity of this measurement needs to be assessed against arterial sampling (either arterial, or arterialized capillary), especially with regards to the lag time required by the CO2 diffusion from the arterial compartment (PaCO2) to the cutaneous one (PtCO2), in particular when rapid changes of CO2 might be induced by exercise. The evaluation will be done in 2 different settings: - intensive care patients,...
Assessment of the TGF-beta Pathway and Micro-RNA in Pediatric Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
This is a prospective pilot study to assess the plasma levels of particular proteins involved in the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) pathway and its down stream regulators, CHIP, as well as micro RNA molecules in subjects with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and compare them to control subjects without PAH to see if they can be used as a diagnostic or prognostic marker of PAH and how this compares to other diagnostic biomarkers N-terminal pro-natriuretic peptide (NT Pro-BNP) and C-reactive protein (CRP).
A Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Ralinepag to Improve Treatment Outcomes in PAH Patients
Study ROR-PH-301, ADVANCE OUTCOMES, is designed to assess the efficacy and safety of ralinepag when added to pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) standard of care or PAH-specific background therapy in subjects with World Health Organization (WHO) Group 1 PAH.
A Study Evaluating the Long-Term Efficacy and Safety of Ralinepag in Subjects With PAH Via an Open-Label Extension
Study ROR-PH-303, ADVANCE EXTENSION, is an open-label extension (OLE) study for participants with WHO Group 1 PAH who have participated in another Phase 2 or Phase 3 study of ralinepag.
