Blood Levels of 3 Proteins May Help Distinguish HFpEF-PH From PAH

Elevated levels of three blood proteins — AMBP, LPL and glyoxalase I — may help identify and distinguish people with pulmonary hypertension linked to heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, called HFpEF-PH, from those with pulmonary arterial hypertension or PAH, a study suggests. Differentiating between the two is key, researchers say, because PAH-specific therapies actually may worsen HFpEF-PH, which has no effective treatments. The study, “Plasma tumour and metabolism related biomarkers AMBP, LPL and Glyoxalase…
