Recent data suggest that inflammatory processes play a major role in pulmonary vascular remodelling in patients with idiopathic, heritable, and drugor toxin-induced (ihd) pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) [1, 2]. Besides gaining insight into the mechanisms of PAH, understanding the link between inflammation and PAH may help to identify future therapeutic targets. Different studies have shown increased levels of cytokines in ihdPAH, including the proinflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-1b… CONTINUE READING
