Markers of Vascular Remodeling May Help Predict PAH in Early Stages

The blood levels of two molecules involved in vascular remodeling, a hallmark feature of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), may be used as noninvasive predictive biomarkers of the disease, a small study suggests. The study, “Fibrinolytic markers could be useful predictors of severity in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension: a retrospective study,” was published in the Thrombosis Journal. PAH is characterized by the narrowing of the pulmonary arteries, restricting blood and oxygen flow and raising blood…
