Special Issue "Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 February 2014)
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare but devastating disease that carries a terrible prognosis. Pathologically PAH is characterized by sustained vasoconstriction and progressive obliteration of small resistance pulmonary arteries. Current treatments target the sustained vasoconstriction but the prognosis remains poor. There is currently limited information on biomarkers that indicate a patient response to these therapies. There is also an unmet need to develop new treatments that specifically target the progressive vasculopathy in these patients.
This Special Issue will provide an Open Access opportunity to publish research work and review articles related to the novel biomarkers, new molecular insights and potential therapeutic targets.
