The Children's Hospital
Published on BioPortfolio: 2014-08-27T03:39:24-0400
Examination of Ventavis (Iloprost) Inhalation Behavior Using the I-Neb AAD System in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension When Switching the Iloprost Nebulizer Solution for Inhalation From 10 μg/mL (V10) to 20 μg/mL (V20)
The aim of this study is to examine inhalation behavior in patients enrolled in the German Ventavis patient support program Ventaplus when these patients are switched from Ventavis (Ilopro...
The purpose of this multi-center international trial is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of adding iloprost or placebo (an inactive substance that contains no active study drug) to...
This is an observational study to monitor the continued effectiveness of Ventavis (inhaled iloprost) in the long-term. The study observes the effects and the safety of Ventavis inhalation ...
The Ventavis® (iloprost) Registry is a multicenter, observational, U.S.-based study that longitudinally follows patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) who have been receiving...
In the present study, the investigators want to investigate the prevalence of BMPR-2 gene mutations in the Korean PAH patients and the investigators test the hypothesis that the PAH patien...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, but severe and life-threatening disease characterized by vasoconstriction and remodeling of the pulmonary arterioles, leading to progressive increase i...
The role of decreased pulmonary arterial (PA) compliance (C), equivalent to increased PA stiffness (1/C) as a critical determinant of right ventricular dysfunction and prognosis has been emphasized in...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a multifactorial disease characterized by vasoconstriction, vascular remodeling, inflammation and thrombosis. Although an increasing number of research confirmed tha...
Upregulation of the immune system is regarded to play an important role in the etiopathobiology of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (C...
Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) consisting of hereditary pulmonary arterial hypertension and idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension is an obstructive pulmonary hypertension caused by primary ...
A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
A syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
An eicosanoid, derived from the cyclooxygenase pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism. It is a stable and synthetic analog of EPOPROSTENOL, but with a longer half-life than the parent compound. Its actions are similar to prostacyclin. Iloprost produces vasodilation and inhibits platelet aggregation.
Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathles...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
