Chemokine Levels in Blood May Mark Risk, Likely Course of IPAH

Certain chemokines — signaling molecules that attract white blood cells to sites of infection — may be blood markers of both a person’s risk of idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and this disease’s likely course in a patient, a study found. PAH is considered idiopathic when its cause is unknown or unclear. The study, “Potential of C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 1/8/10/12 as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension,” was published in The Clinical…
