Review papers discussing the burden and treatment of pulmonary hypertension, as well as several discussion pieces, to highlight the progress made in this important area. The renewed focus from pharmaceutical companies in this relatively rare condition with notable successes should be applauded. However, as the number of cases rise and the divide in access to effective treatment grows, pressure must be brought to bear upon stakeholders to improve the evidence base, and we hope this collection of content will help in this respect.]]> FDA Rejects Medtronic’s Remodulin Pump http://www.phcentral.org/news/6178 http://www.barchart.com/headlines/story/783263/united-therapeutics-down-as-fda-rejects-medtronic-s-remodulin-pump April 13, 2016 Optimized nano-transfersomal films for enhanced sildenafil citrate transdermal delivery http://www.phcentral.org/news/6169 https://www.dovepress.com/optimized-nano-transfersomal-films-for-enhanced-sildenafil-citrate-tra-peer-reviewed-article-DDDT April 13, 2016 New PH Biomarker and Non-Invasive Disease Detection Presented at ACC 2016 http://www.phcentral.org/news/6177 http://pulmonaryhypertensionnews.com/2016/04/07/new-ph-biomarker-non-invasive-disease-detection-test-presented-acc-2016/ April 12, 2016 A World First at the Montreal Heart Institute - PulmoBind: A Biomarker for Diagnosing Pulmonary Hypertension http://www.phcentral.org/news/6168 http://www.ottawacitizen.com/business/cnw/release.html?rkey=20160405C5556&filter=5609 April 12, 2016 Assessment of Thyroid Function in Idiopathic Pulmonary Hypertension http://www.phcentral.org/news/6167 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4755060/ April 11, 2016 New Study Finds Thousands of Pulmonary Embolism Patients May Later Develop a Life-Threatening Form of Pulmonary Hypertension http://www.phcentral.org/news/6166 http://news.sys-con.com/node/3757707 April 10, 2016 Uptravi for Treatment of PAH Gets Postive Opinion from EMA Committee; EC Decision Expected Soon http://www.phcentral.org/news/6165 http://lungdiseasenews.com/2016/04/08/positive-chmp-opinion-for-uptravi-selexipag-for-the-long-term-treatment-of-pulmonary-arterial-hypertension-readopted/ April 9, 2016 In PAH Patients, Study Finds Combo Therapy Reduces Risk of Clinical Worsening http://www.phcentral.org/news/6164 http://lungdiseasenews.com/2016/04/04/pah-patients-study-finds-combo-therapy-reduces-risk-clinical-worsening/ April 8, 2016 Eiger Bio's ubenimex an Orphan Drug in Europe for PAH http://www.phcentral.org/news/6163 http://seekingalpha.com/news/3169774-eiger-bios-ubenimex-orphan-drug-europe-pah April 7, 2016 Low Cardiac Index Seen to Predict Sleep Disordered Breathing in CTEPH Patients http://www.phcentral.org/news/6162 http://pulmonaryhypertensionnews.com/2016/03/29/usefulness-of-low-cardiac-index-to-predict-sleep-disordered-breathing-in-chronic-thromboembolic-pulmonary-hypertension/ April 5, 2016 Pulmonary Rehab of Multiple Benefit to People with PH and Other Respiratory Diseases http://www.phcentral.org/news/6161 http://pulmonaryhypertensionnews.com/2016/03/28/pulmonary-rehab-multiple-benefit-people-ph-respiratory-diseases-release-notes/ April 4, 2016 Endothelial actions of atrial natriuretic peptide prevent pulmonary hypertension in mice http://www.phcentral.org/news/6160 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4766231/ April 3, 2016 Growth in children with pulmonary arterial hypertension http://www.phcentral.org/news/6159 http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600(16)00069-2/abstract April 2, 2016 Treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension in congenital heart disease in Singapore versus the Netherlands http://www.phcentral.org/news/6158 http://paperity.org/p/75923243/treatment-of-pulmonary-arterial-hypertension-in-congenital-heart-disease-in-singapore April 1, 2016 Minimally invasive method can close hole in hearts http://www.phcentral.org/news/6157 http://www.suncoastnews.com/su/list/news-pasco/minimally-invasive-method-can-close-hole-in-hearts-20160318/ March 31, 2016
