Retrospective Chart Review of First-time Opsumit® (Macitentan) Users in the United States

2017-06-26 04:19:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The Opsumit Users registry (OPUS; NCT02126943) was developed to characterize the safety profile of Opsumit and to describe clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients newly treated with Opsumit in the post-marketing setting. It is expected that the recruitment target of the OPUS registry cannot be achieved within the planned time period (5000 Opsumit new users by October 2018). The OrPHeUS study is designed to supplement the OPUS registry with retrospectively identified first-time Opsumit users in order to achieve the desired sample size.

The Early Recognition of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

The early detection of pulmonary arterial hypertension may help to improve prognosis of the disease. It is assumed that in the early stages of pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary ar...

Early Therapy of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Exercise-induced increase of the pulmonary arterial pressure may be an early sign of pulmonary arterial hypertension. It has been shown that patients with normal pulmonary arterial pressur...

Repeatability of OCT and IV-US in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

To assess the correlation between pulmonary IV-OCT and pulmonary IV-US measurements and standard PAH clinical measures of disease progression and the relative sensitivity of the techniques...

A Pharmacokinetics Study for Pediatric Participants With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

The purpose of this study to see how much study drug is in the blood after dosing children with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and to establish the correct dose for further clinical...

Right Ventricular Metabolism in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

The purpose of this study is to use non-invasive imaging to determine the metabolic phenotype of the right ventricle in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension across a spectrum of d...

Autoimmune disease mouse model exhibits pulmonary arterial hypertension.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension is often associated with connective tissue disease. Although there are some animal models of pulmonary hypertension, an autoimmune disease-based model has not yet been ...

Changes in main pulmonary artery diameter during follow-up have prognostic implications in pulmonary arterial hypertension.

A dilated pulmonary artery (PA) is a common finding in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Little is known on the variations in PA size over time and whether these changes track with ...

Red Blood Cells Distribution Width as a Potential Prognostic Biomarker in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension.

Red blood cells distribution width (RDW) predicts survival in cardiovascular diseases. Little is known about the variability of RDW level over time among patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension ...

Features and Outcomes of Methamphetamine Associated Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.

While amphetamines are recognized as "likely" agents to cause drugs and toxins associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), (meth)amphetamine associated PAH (Meth-APAH) has not been well describe...

New targets for pulmonary arterial hypertension: going beyond the currently targeted three pathways.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a hemodynamic state defined by a resting mean pulmonary arterial pressure at or above 25 mmHg with a normal pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, ultimately le...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.

A prostaglandin that is a powerful vasodilator and inhibits platelet aggregation. It is biosynthesized enzymatically from PROSTAGLANDIN ENDOPEROXIDES in human vascular tissue. The sodium salt has been also used to treat primary pulmonary hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PULMONARY).
