Clinical Trials

Topic   Pulmonary Artery Hypertension
Title   Patients diagnosed with Pulmonary Artery Hypertension (PAH) are being asked to participate in this clinical research study.
Summary   Volunteers are needed for a Pulmonary Artery Hypertension (PAH) study.
Description   Winthrop University Hospital Clinical Trials Center is conducting this clinical research study for patients between the ages of 18 and 85 years old, who have been diagnosed with PAH. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension occurs when the pressure in the pulmonary artery (the blood vessel that leads from the heart to the lungs) rises above normal levels. This increased pressure may become life threatening as it could cause progressive right heart failure. As PAH progresses, a patient's quality of life typically deteriorates as well.
