A DEVASTATING DISEASE
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, progressive disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the blood vessels connected to and within the lungs.
In PAH, the muscles in the walls of the arteries in the lungs become thickened and the arteries become narrower, making it much harder for the heart to pump blood through the lungs.
PAH is a debilitating and life-threatening condition that shortens patient life expectancy because it often leads to severe breathing difficulties and heart failure.
Therapeutic options, although evolving, remain limited.
