We list hundreds of Clinical Trials about "Pulmonary Hypertension" on BioPortfolio. We draw our references from global clinical trials data listed on ClinicalTrials.gov and refresh our database daily.
We have published hundreds of Pulmonary Hypertension news stories on BioPortfolio along with dozens of Pulmonary Hypertension Clinical Trials and PubMed Articles about Pulmonary Hypertension for you to read. In addition to the medical data, news and clinical trials, BioPortfolio also has a large collection of Pulmonary Hypertension Companies in our database. You can also find out about relevant Pulmonary Hypertension Drugs and Medications on this site too.
As a pulmonary hypertension center, we have created a database that prospectively tracks patients with different forms of secondary pulmonary hypertension. Records include genetic analysis, and clinical and hemodynamic profiles.
Myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative Disease represent conditions with increased risk for pulmonary hypertension. However, the exact prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in these conditions is not known. The effects of pulmonary hypertension on the clinical picture and the symptoms of patients in these conditions needs also further exploration. This exploratory study is designed to describe the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in the population with such hematologic disea...
"Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a severe form of pulmonary hypertension characterized by obstruction of the pulmonary vasculature by residual organized thrombi, leading to increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), progressive pulmonary hypertension, and right failure. In patients deemed operable, pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is the gold standard treatment and is the only potentially curative treatment. However, some patients are ineligible for ...
The present trial investigates a possible use of oral bosentan, which is currently approved for the treatment of symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), to patients suffering from inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) because of (i) peripheral localization of thrombotic material or (ii) persistent or recurrent pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary endarterectomy.
The study evaluates the technique of non-drug treatment of residual pulmonary hypertension in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary thromboendarterectomy.
The objective of the present study is to assess blood coagulation disorders in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension. The investigators aim to evaluate any possible coagulation abnormalities related to the patients' primary disease and any possible effects the pulmonary hypertension- specific therapy may have on hemostasis.
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 to change.
The current data on the incidence of pulmonary hypertension (PH) are very variable, depending on the different studies designs. There are no data on the prognostic of PH in patients with asymptomatic pulmonary thromboembolisms (PT), neither paucisymptomatic PH, in which without a prospective follow-up would be underdiagnosed. We thought that the prognosis of both clinical forms (PT with or without symptoms) would be similar. The objective of this study is know the real inciden...
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 arterial pressure values may be normal at rest, but the remodelling of small arteries leads to stiffening resulting in increased pulmonary arterial pressure during exercise. In the present study we investigate patients with risk factors for pulmonary arterial hypertension (e.g. connective tissue...
This is an open-label, uncontrolled, prospective long-term observation of Specific Drug in the treatment of patients with pulmonary hypertension up to 4 years. 160 patients with primary (idiopathic and familial) pulmonary hypertension (PH) or pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) due to scleroderma with New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class and exercise capacity, defined as class III and IV planned to enroll. Efficacy, safety and tolerability of the drug and the su...
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a consequence of an increase in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), pulmonary blood flow, pulmonary venous pressure, or a combination of these elements. Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a frequent complication of congenital heart disease, particularly in patients with systemic-to-pulmonary shunts. Persistent exposure o f the pulmonary vasculature to increased blood flow and pressure may result in vascular remodeling and dysfunction. This leads ...
We are doing this research study to find out how blood flow changes in the lungs of people with pulmonary hypertension before and after treatment with ambrisentan (sold under the brand name Letairis). We hope that knowing about these differences will help us to better understand pulmonary hypertension and find new ways to diagnose it earlier.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis(IPF) is chronic progressive fibrosing lung disease of unknown cause. There is no effective therapy yet for this disease and the mean survival in most reports is about 3 years after the diagnosis. Because of the stiff fibrosis of the lung, pulmonary hypertension is the late complication of IPF and its development heralds a very poor outcome of the patients. For the primary pulmonary hypertension, recently the effective drugs have been available. How...
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 pressure at rest but elevated pulmonary arterial pressure during exercise have a decreased exercise-capacity and may have a worse prognosis compared to patients with normal pulmonary arterial pressure values at rest and during exercise. According to the currently used definition pulmonary hypertensio...
Sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor that can exert a nitric oxide-mediated vasodilation effect, so it's considered one of the preferred agents especially in hypoxia induced pulmonary hypertension, can achieve pulmonary vasodilation by enhancing sustained levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and nitric oxide. Despite the potential burden of pulmonary hypertension in hemodialysis patients, such agent like sildenafil has limited studies about optimum dose, safe...
Measurement of the endtidal carbon dioxide by capnography to exclude or to ensure the diagnosis pulmonary hypertension. The aim of the study is to obtain an endtidal carbon dioxide cut-off value for the diagnostic algorithm for pulmonary hypertension as an easily measurable and cheap diagnostic tool in patients with suspicion of pulmonary hypertension.
Evaluate the correlation between activity level (monitored by Fitbit Flex remote activity tracker) and 6-minute walk distance (6MWD) (performed by investigator) in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) or Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) over 6 months in routine clinical practice settings.
The purpose of this study is to describe the epidemiology of pulmonary hypertension in individuals with HIV infection and to investigate its pathogenesis. We propose to conduct a prospective observational cohort study to determine the association between highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and viral suppression in HIV-infected patients who have been identified to have pre-clinical pulmonary hypertension (Aim 1). In addition, we will investigate the mechanistic role of ...
Clinical improvement has been demonstrated after cardiorespiratory rehabilitation in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Rehabilitation is therefore now part of the recommendations for good practice. However, no data is available to elucidate the mechanism of this improvement: an improvement in myocardial reserve or an improvement in peripheral muscular capacity? The main objective of this study is to evaluate the difference in right ventricular contractile reserve before and...
we try to use simvastatin in the treatment of advanced pulmoary hypertension secondary to congenital heart disease or chronic pulmonary embolism before and after the operation.
To describe the prevalence, incidence and current treatment and procedures patterns in a US pediatric population with PAH in MarketScan database during the period 2010-2013.
The primary objective is to establish the safety of autologous progenitor cell-based gene therapy of heNOS in patients with severe Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension(PAH) refractory to conventional treatment.
This is a multicenter, multinational, open label, non-comparative, phase III extension study to assess the long-term safety and tolerability of the pediatric formulation of bosentan in children with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension or familial 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 research.
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 disease severity.
