Epidemiology and Pathogenesis of HIV-Associated Pulmonary Hypertension
The purpose of this study is to describe the epidemiology of pulmonary hypertension in individuals with HIV infection and to investigate its pathogenesis. We propose to conduct a prospective observational cohort study to determine the association between highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and viral suppression in HIV-infected patients who have been identified to have pre-clinical pulmonary hypertension (Aim 1). In addition, we will investigate the mechanistic role of the HIV-1 Nef protein and HHV-8 infection in the development and progression of pulmonary hypertension in individuals with HIV (Aim 2). We will also...
Extension Study for Participants in LIQ861 Trials to Evaluate the Long-term Safety of Dry Powder Inhalation of Treprostinil
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety of LIQ861 in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Frailty in Children With Cardiac Disease
Frailty is a complex biologic syndrome of diminished physiologic reserve that leads to decreased resistance to stressors and is associated with adverse health outcomes. The syndrome has been well studied in adults and is quantified by the Fried criteria, which are comprised of five components- slowness, weakness, self-reported exhaustion, shrinkage and diminished physical activity. The concept of frailty is novel in children. A study in young adult childhood cancer survivors demonstrated increased incidence of frailty in this population along with increased risk of morbidity and mortality. This suggests that frailty as a phenotype...
HYPID (Pulmonary Hypertension in Interstitial Lung Disease) EXTENSION
HYPID-2 study is an extension of HYPID study (NCT01443598) : HYPID-2 is also an observational and prospective study of patients with interstitial lung disease and pre capillary hypertension diagnosed by right heart sided catheterization. It concerns only incident patients (i.e patients included within 6 months after PH diagnosis) whereas HYPID concerned prevalent and incident cases. The primary aim is the same than HYPID : identify prognostic factors
Impact of Multiple Doses of BAY63-2521 on Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Associated Pulmonary Hypertension (PH)
The purpose of this study is to assess multiple ascending doses of a new drug (BAY63-2521) given orally, to evaluate if it is safe and can help to improve the well-being, symptoms (e.g. disturbed breathing) and outcome of pulmonary hypertension associated with lung fibrosis. Patients living with pulmonary hypertension associated with interstitial lung disease have a risk of increased number of hospitalisations because of worsening of their condition. Until now there is no approved medication for this disease. The current treatment of pulmonary hypertension associated with interstitial lung disease consists: of oxygen and medical...
International BPA Registry
The International Balloon Pulmonary Angioplasty (BPA) Registry is a prospective, multi-center, long-term observational project. Scheduled to start data collection in Q4 2017, the registry will run for approximately four years with a follow-up time for each patient of at least two years. Its primary objective is to investigate the efficacy and safety of BPA intervention in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) not amenable to pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA).
Long-term Ambrisentan Extension Study for Pediatric Patients Who Participated in AMB112529
An open label, long term extension to Study AMB112529. All subjects may remain in the extension study for a minimum of six months. Beyond the six month period, subjects may continue in the extension study until one of the following conditions is met: the subject turns 18 years of age (when the subject can receive marketed product) the product is approved and available for use in the subject's age group, development for use in the paediatric population is discontinued. the subject decides he/she no longer wants to participate in the study, the investigator considers it is in the best interest of the subject to discontinue...
Long-Term Extension Study of Inhaled Nitric Oxide (iNO) for PAH
An Open-Label Long-Term Safety Study of Inhaled Nitric Oxide (iNO) for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)
Long Term Safety and Efficacy of Ralinepag in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
This study is an open-label extension study to determine the long-term safety and tolerability of APD811 in patients with WHO Group 1 PAH who have completed the Phase 2 study, APD811-003. Patients must have completed the APD811-003 study and must meet eligibility criteria for APD811-007.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy for Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Preterm Babies
Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) is the most frequent disease related to a premature birth, 15-50% of very low birth newborns (<1500 gr.) will develop BPD. The prevalence of BPD is increasing due to the advances in neonatology, with a rise in the survival of smaller and more premature babies. The etiology of BPD is multifactorial, in which oxygen, maternal chorioamnionitis, insufficient pulmonary maturation etc. have an important role. These factors lead to a pathological development of the lung and pulmonary vessels, developing secondary Pulmonary Hypertension (PH). Nowadays there is no efficient treatment; this generates a...
