A Long-term Extension Study of Riociguat in Patients With Symptomatic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.
To provide riociguat therapy to eligible patients with PAH originating from Bayer-sponsored trials with BAY63-2521/ Riociguat / Adempas® who are currently or recently treated in these trials until lack of patient benefit as assessed by investigator, or commercial availability and reimbursement.
Ambrisentan in Patients With Porto-pulmonary Hypertension A Multicenter Open Label Trial
This is an Open Label, Multicenter, pilot clinical trial to assess the efficacy and safety of an oral selective Endothelin Receptor Antagonist (ambrisentan) in patients with portopulmonary hypertension. Preliminary evidence suggests that ambrisentan is safe and effective in patients with portopulmonary hypertension. The goal of therapy for these patients is to improve symptoms of dyspnea and to improve pulmonary hemodynamics to a mean pulmonary artery pressure <35 mm Hg in order to make patients eligible for liver transplantation. Therefore, the primary endpoints for this study will include 6 minute walk distance (6MWD) and pulmonary...
A Mobile Health Intervention in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
This study proposes the use of a mobile health intervention (utilizing a smart phone app) to encourage increased exercise in PAH patients. The study will be a randomized trial to examine feasibility of an mHealth (mobile device) Fitbit Charge HR and cell phone application intervention to improve step counts and increase participants activity level as compared to no intervention. The Fitbit Charge Heart Rate (HR) monitors activity and the cell phone application provides encouragement notifications to half the subjects while the other half do not receive encouragements.
Analysis of the Severity and Prognosis of Pulmonary Hypertension Associated With Bronchiectasis.
Through analysis of demographic factors (gender, age, smoking history, body mass index), clinical indicators (signs and symptoms), sputum culture results (pseudomonas aeruginosa), Brain Natriuretic Peptide and imaging (scope and type of Bronchiectasis), pulmonary function index, inflammatory cytokines and inflammasome of patients, some factors will be found which maybe be related to severity and prognosis of Pulmonary Hypertension Associated With Bronchiectasis.
Angiogenic Imaging in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a disorder of elevated pulmonary vascular resistance characterized by progressive remodeling and obliteration of vessels of the distal pulmonary circulation. Outcomes in PAH could be improved with earlier diagnosis, and with the early deployment of therapies before irreversible changes have occurred. This study tests the sensitivity of positron emission tomography (PET)-CT scanning with [89Zr]-bevacizumab, a radioisotope-conjugated anti-VEGF antibody for detecting pulmonary vascular remodeling in PAH disease. This test could enable non-invasive diagnosis early in the course of the disease, and...
Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE2), Brain, Gut Dysbiosis in Pulmonary Hypertension
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is fatal with right heart failure due to raised pulmonary vascular pressure. Gut dysbiosis was identified in animals with pulmonary hypertension. Deidentified human samples will be tested for gut dysbiosis in PAH, circulating bacterial metabolites and markers of inflammation and gut leakiness. The gut microbiome and circulating metabolites, markers of inflammation and gut leakiness of PAH patients and healthy subjects will be compared in deidentified fecal samples and blood.
An Open Label Extension Study to Evaluate Inhaled Treprostinil in Adult PH With ILD Including CPFE
This is a multicenter, open-label trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of inhaled treprostinil in subjects with pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with interstitial lung disease (ILD) including combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE). The study will include about 266 patients who completed all required assessments in the RIN-PH-201 study at approximately 100 clinical trial centers. The study will continue Your participation in this study is voluntary and will last until you discontinue from the study or the study ends. The study will continue until each subject reaches the Week 108 visit or until inhaled...
An Open-Label Extension Trial of UT-15C SR in Subjects With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
This study provides, or continues to provide, UT-15C SR (treprostinil diethanolamine) to eligible patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension who have completed protocols TDE-PH-202, TDE-PH-203, TDE-PH-205, TDE-PH-301, TDE-PH-302, TDE-PH-308 studies or any additional UT-15C SR clinical protocols evaluating subjects with PAH. The study assesses the long term safety of UT-15C and the effect of continued treatment with UT-15C on exercise capacity after one year of treatment.
An Open-Label, Long-Term Study of Oral Treprostinil in Subjects With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
This study is an international, multi-center, open-label study designed to provide oral treprostinil (UT-15C) to eligible subjects with pulmonary arterial hypertension who have completed the TDE-PH-310 study. The purpose of this study is to assess the long-term safety of UT-15C and to assess the effects of long-term treatment with UT-15C on exercise capacity.
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...
