Acute Decompensation of Pulmonary Hypertension

Study Purpose

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.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

No
Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

NCT03926572
Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

It is planned to include 150 patients over a two-year period. The primary endpoint is a composite endpoint including death, circulatory assistance or emergency transplantation within 90 days following admission to intensive care unit. Patients will be treated according to the usual practice. A biobank will be created from blood samples taken at admission, days 3 and days 7. Prognostic value of pre-selected biomarkers will be analyzed and a proteomic analysis will be performed in order to identify new biomarkers. The prognostic value of these new biological parameters will be compared to the usual monitoring parameters that will be collected during follow-up (clinical, echocardiographic and haemodynamic parameters). In a second step, it will establish, using a dynamic model, the best combinations of parameters allowing to best assessment of prognosis of patients suffering from PH and hospitalized for acute right ventricular failure.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension or non-operable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension established by right cardiac catheterization prior to inclusion in the study

Interventions

Other: - A biobank will be created from blood samples taken at admission, days 3 and days 7

A biobank will be created from the blood samples taken on admission, days 3 and 7 of admission. The prognostic value of the preselected biomarkers will be analyzed and a proteomic analysis will be performed to identify new biomarkers. The prognostic value of these new biological parameters will be compared to the usual surveillance parameters that will be collected during the follow-up (clinical, echocardiographic and hemodynamic parameters)
