Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Understanding

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: Overview
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a progressive disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure (hypertension) in the pulmonary artery, the blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs. Pulmonary arterial hypertension is one form of a broader condition known as pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension occurs when most of the very small arteries throughout the lungs narrow in diameter, which increases the resistance to blood flow through the lungs. To overcome the increased resistance, blood pressure increases in the pulmonary artery and in the right ventricle of the heart, which is the chamber that pumps blood into the pulmonary artery. Ultimately, the increased blood pressure can damage the right ventricle of the heart.

Signs and symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension occur when increased blood pressure cannot fully overcome the elevated resistance. As a result, the flow of oxygenated blood from the lungs to the rest of the body is insufficient. Shortness of breath (dyspnea) during exertion and fainting spells are the most common symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension. People with this disorder may experience additional symptoms, particularly as the condition worsens. Other symptoms include dizziness, swelling (edema) of the ankles or legs, chest pain, and a rapid heart rate.

As the symptoms are similar to other common lung diseases, it can often be hard to diagnose PAH. Diagnosis is a process of eliminating other diseases. With the help of lung and heart specialists (pulmonologist and cardiologist) the patient will need to take a number of tests, such as:
• Blood tests: Include HIV, thyroid tests, autoimmune disease panels (test for systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, and rheumatoid arthritis), liver tests and blood chemistry tests.
• Electrocardiogram: Shows the electrical activity of the heart and may help detect abnormalities. Doctors may also be able to detect signs of strain on the right side of the heart.
• Lung function tests (breathing tests): Check for diseases like asthma or emphysema.
• 6-Minute Walk Test: Objectively measures how far you can walk and to see if your oxygen levels drop when one exert yourself.
• Echocardiogram: Ultrasound of the heart to check the size and condition of the chambers of the heart. It can also be used to estimate the blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries.
• Right Heart Catheterization: This test is invasive, so it is not usually performed unless other tests cannot produce a firm diagnosis. It involves inserting a catheter (small tube) into a large vein in either the neck, arm, or groin, and threading it through the right side of the heart and into the pulmonary artery. This allows measurement of the blood pressure in the lungs.

Several medications have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of PAH. These medications can be broadly broken down into four categories described below.
• Prostaglandins: The orphan drug Flolan (epoprostenol sodium for injection or prostacycline) has been approved as a standard long-term treatment of individuals with severe PAH.
• Endothelin Receptor Antagonists: The orphan drug bosentan (Tracleer) has been approved by the FDA for treatment of PAH. The drug allows affected individuals to exert themselves physically without shortness of breath.
• Phosphodiesterase Type 5 Inhibitors: Revatio (sildenafil), a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor is also used to treat PAH.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Emerging Drugs
• LIQ861: Liquidia Technologies
LIQ861 is an inhaled dry powder formulation of treprostinil designed using our PRINT technology to enhance deep-lung delivery using a convenient, palm-sized, disposable dry powder inhaler (DPI) for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). We believe LIQ861 can overcome the limitations of current inhaled therapies and has the potential to maximize the therapeutic benefits of treprostinil in treating PAH by safely delivering higher doses into the lungs.
• CXA-10: Complexa
CXA-10 is an oral nitrated fatty acid compound that is being evaluated in the phase II PRIMEx clinical trial for the treatment of PAH. It acts through a constellation of actions including:
• Upregulation of Nrf2 pathways, a key pro-reparative and metabolic pathway
• Inhibition of NF-Kappa B and TLR4, key drivers of inflammatory molecules and pathways
• Inhibition of Xanthine Oxidoreductase, a key intracellular producer of Reactive Oxygen Species add that result in cellular oxidative stress
• Increasing the expression of heat shock proteins, which act as chaperones during cellular stress to restore cellular homeostatic mechanisms

• Sotatercept: Acceleron Pharma
Sotatercept is an investigational product being studied in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension Sotatercept is a ligand trap with high selectivity for multiple proteins within the TGF-beta superfamily, including activins, GDFs, and others. With its believed ability to block the TGF-beta superfamily signaling pathway, sotatercept could promote a rebalancing of BMPR-II signaling and, potentially, restore vascular homeostasis.
• GB002: Gossamer Bio
GB002 is a novel inhaled pdgfr kinase inhibitor, demonstrates efficacy in the su5416 hypoxia rat model of PAH. It is currently in phase I stage of development.
• RBM-011: Ribomic
RBM-011 is a promising candidate to provide a new treatment of PAH by inhibiting the action of IL-21. IL-21 is known to promote the proliferation of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells and promote PAH pathology. It is currently in preclinical stage of development.
