PURPOSE: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare, life-threatening disease that is commonly associated with various comorbidities. Although multiple therapies are approved by FDA in recent years, less than significant improvement is seen in patient survival. A primary reason for suboptimal therapeutic benefits can be attributed to ability of current therapies to merely ameliorate PH symptoms without limiting the vasculopathy associated with disease progression. Due to existence of overlapping and interconnected pathological pathways, PH management has been a cumbersome task as the current therapeutic interventions only target one of the many pathological pathways involved. This study is aimed to evaluate the need for a multiple pathway modulating therapy for PH management.
