List of Studies

Keywords
Lung, Pulmonary, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)
Summary

The purpose of this study is to assess safety of the study drug, inhaled treprostinil, and the ability to tolerate long-term treatment with the study drug in patients with PH-COPD. The study will also evaluate the effectiveness of the study drug over long-term treatment. Inhaled treprostinil is a medication that will be given to you by a handheld inhalation device (study nebulizer) called the Tyvaso® Inhalation System. The study is estimated to last 2 to 3 years but could be much shorter or longer. Depending on the final number of subjects who participated in the RIN-PH-304 study, either approximately 136 or approximately 314 subjects may be eligible to participate in this study from the U.S. study centers.

Pulmonary Hypertension Association Registry (PHAR)

Date Added
March 18th, 2020
PRO Number
Pro00097483
Researcher
Rahul Argula

List of Studies

Keywords
Lung, Pulmonary, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)
Summary

The PHAR is a multicenter, prospective registry of newly evaluated patients at PHCCs in the United States who have either PAH or CTEPH. Baseline information will be collected at the time of initial evaluation at the PHCC (within six months of the initial outpatient PHCC visit) with follow-up data collected at approximately 6-month intervals. This study will determine how patients with PH are evaluated, tested, and treated, and will observe how well patients do. The goal of the project is to see if patients with PH are treated according to recommended guidelines and to see if there are certain factors which lead to better or worse outcomes in patients with PH. There is no intervention or study medication used and there is no limitation to how a patient is treated in this study.

Keywords
Lung, Pulmonary, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)
Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of inhaled treprostinil in improving exercise ability in patients with PH (Pulmonary Hypertension) -COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) when compared to an inactive solution, or placebo. This is a 34-week study. Approximately 136 subjects will be enrolled at approximately 60 US centers in the Original Design. If the study is adapted to the Contingent Design, approximately 314 subjects will be enrolled at approximately 80 US centers.

Cardiac biopsies in pulmonary hypertension

Date Added

PRO Number

Researcher
Ryan Tedford

List of Studies

Keywords
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), Scleroderma
Summary

Patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) related pulmonary arterial hypertension (SScPAH) have a worse prognosis than those with idiopathic PAH. We have recently discovered that heart cells in SScPAH do not contract or squeeze as well as in other forms of pulmonary hypertension. However, the mechanism leading to this dysfunction is not understood. To better study this and in hopes of developing a future therapy, we plan to collect tissue samples via a heart biopsy at the time of a clinically indicated heart catheterization.
