Single Cell Gene Expression in Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Robert Lafyatis, MD
University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine


Presented By The New York Academy of Sciences

Attendees of Pulmonary Hypertension: Beyond Vasodilators will learn about:

Pathways implicated in the progression of pulmonary hypertension
Mechanisms of action for currently approved medications
Novel therapeutic approaches overcoming vasodilator limitations

Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in your lungs and on the right side of your heart. The condition is highly morbid. The mean survival time upon diagnosis is five years. The current therapy mode of vasodilators, which open the blood vessels, do not stop or reverse the disease. There is a pressing need for new treatment options.
