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.

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 of to Confirm the Doses of Selexipag in Children With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Selexipag is available for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in adults in various countries. The efficacy of selexipag to delay disease progression was shown in a previous pivotal study conducted in 1156 adult patients with PAH. Given the similarities in the functional changes of PAH in children and adults, it is expected that children suffering from PAH could benefit from treatment with selexipag. The aim of the present study is to confirm the doses of selexipag to be used in pediatric patients with PAH older than 2 years. To fulfill this aim, blood levels of selexipag (pharmacokinetic assessments) as well as the ...
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.
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.
Acute Haemodynamic Study of TPN171H in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
This study is a phase IIa proof-of-concept study to evaluate the effect of single-dose TPN171H tablets on acute haemodynamic parameters in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.The trial is expected to include 60 patients, divided into 6 groups, according to 1:1:1:1:1:1 into the placebo group and the test drugs 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg group, tadalafil tablets 20mg, 40mg group, each group 10 cases.
ADAPT - A Patient Registry of the Real-world Use of Orenitram®
This prospective, observational, multicenter, patient registry will follow patients who are receiving treatment with Orenitram for the treatment of PAH for up to 78 weeks from Orenitram initiation
A Dose Escalation Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Pulsed Inhaled Nitric Oxide in Subjects With Pulmonary Fibrosis or Sarcoidosis
A phase 2b, open label study to assess the safety and efficacy of increasing doses of pulsed, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in subjects with pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis on long term oxygen therapy followed by a long term extension study
ALlogeneic Cardiosphere-derived Stem Cells (CDCs) for Pulmonary Hypertension therApy
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension or PAH is a progressive condition for which there is no cure. Even with substantial pharmacologic advances in the modern treatment era, survival still remains unacceptably poor, as reported in large PAH registries. Preclinical studies suggest that the administration of allogeneic CDCs have the potential to reduce adverse arteriolar remodeling in PAH which was the basis for the approved investigational new drug (IND). The use of CDCs as an adjunctive therapy in patients comprising 4 sub-groups of patients with PAH in which inflammation and immune dysfunction are key pathophysiologic drivers of PAH.
