Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a medical condition, characterized by restricted blood flow through the pulmonary arteries, which leads to a progressive increase in pulmonary vascular resistance and subsequently right heart failure. PAH is one of the five groups of pulmonary hypertension, classified by the World Health Organization (WHO). PAH occurs, when the pulmonary arteries become narrowed, thickened, or blocked. The advanced therapy to treat PAH includes prostacyclin and prostacyclin analogs, endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs), phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, and soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulators. This advanced therapy is directed towards PAH itself, and not at the underlying cause of PAH. In addition to the aforementioned classes of drugs, physicians also prescribe drugs such as calcium channel blockers, diuretics, digoxin and anticoagulants to patients with PAH.
Based on the commercially-available drug classes, to treat PAH, the global PAH market has been segmented into prostacyclin and prostacyclin analogs, endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs), phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, and soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulators. Prostacyclin and prostacyclin analogs were the first medications approved by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of PAH. Currently, epoprostenol (Flolan and Veletri), treprostinil (Remodulin, Tyvaso and Orenitram), and iloprost (Ventavis) are the three...
