Bellerophon brings inhaled nitric oxide into Ph2 pulmonary hypertension trial

Bellerophon Therapeutics (NSDQ:BLPH) has enrolled the first patient in a Phase IIb study assessing its INOpulse device in patients with pulmonary hypertension due to interstitial lung disease. The company’s placebo-controlled study is slated to evaluate the safety and efficacy of pulsed, inhaled nitric oxide in patients with PH-ILD, including those with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, Bellerophon reported.

Fares Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) comprise a broad and heterogeneous group of more than two hundred diseases with common functional characteristics. Their diagnosis and management require a multidisciplinary approach. This multidisciplinary approach involves the assessment of comorbid conditions including pulmonary hypertension (PH) that exerts a dramatic impact on survival. The current World He...

We report a case of a 68-year-old non-smoking female with NF1, pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension (PH) and an interstitial lung pattern. Initial findings included progressive dyspnea, hypoxemia and sparse centrilobular ground-glass micronodules on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT). Further study demonstrated a severe defect in diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO), macrophages on bronchoalveolar lavage and pre-capillary PH on right cardiac catheterization. Surgical biopsy revealed macrophage accumulation along bronchovascular bundles and alveolar spaces and type II pneumocytes hyperplasia. Given the abse...

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) represents a collection of lung disorders with a lethal trajectory with few therapeutic options with the exception of lung transplantation. Various extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) configurations have been used for bridge to transplant (BTT), yet no optimal configuration has been clearly demonstrated. Using a cardiopulmonary simulation, we assessed different ECMO configurations for patients with end-stage ILD to assess the physiologic deficits and help guide the development of new long-term pulmonary support devices. A cardiopulmonary ECMO simulation was created, and changes in hem...

ConclusionpPTT was found to be shorter in SSc patients. pPTT might serve as a surrogate marker of pulmonary hemodynamics in patients with SSc, even prior to the development of pulmonary hypertension.

Abstract The Critical Care Medicine Department of the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center and the Pulmonary Hypertension Association held a joint symposium to discuss "Challenges in Pulmonary Hypertension: Beating, Breathing, and Beyond." Communities of interest including patient advocates, clinicians, and academic investigators gathered together to raise awareness and highlight the challenges in diagnosing and treating pulmonary hypertension (PH). The current symposium focused on whether or not pulmonary arterial hypertension specific treatments are warranted as therapies for PH due to heart f...
