  • Endothelin-1 and Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy (CAV)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Many patients with end-stage heart failure, a condition in which the heart fails to pump enough blood to support the body's other organs, are fortunate enough to receive a heart transplant. However, despite taking medicines aimed at blunting the immune system's response to the donor heart, some of them will develop transplant-related disease in the coronary arteries supplying their hearts. Fifty years after the first human-to-human heart transplant, this disorder-cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV)-remains a leading cause of long-term death and has been coined the 'Achilles' Heel' of heart transplantation. Indeed, a better understanding of how CAV occurs and improved therapies to prevent and/or slow its development are desperately needed to meaningfully impact patient outcomes. Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a key molecular regulator of arterial health, and our prior data suggests that it is associated with accelerated CAV. In this particular study of recent heart transplant recipients, we are asking: Does ET-1 contribute to the coronary artery's capacity to dilate/constrict? To answer this question, during the cardiac catheterization at 1 year post-transplant (standard of care), we will measure blood levels of ET-1 and perform an invasive evaluation of coronary vasomotor function inn a consecutive subset of patients who will have received a 1-week course of the oral endothelin receptor antagonist (macitentan) prior this catheterization, which will allow us to test how much ET-1 contributes to coronary responsiveness. The findings from this study may provide the necessary foundation to study whether endothelin receptor antagonists are able to effectively reduce the rate of accelerated CAV.

  • International Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) "iSCAD" Registry

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The aim of "iSCAD," the International Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) Registry, is to serve as an internationally collaborative, multicenter registry coordinated by an experienced and centralized coordinating center in an effort to increase the pace of participant recruitment, and thereby increase statistical power of studies related to SCAD. The ultimate goal of iSCAD Registry is to facilitate the development of best practices and clinical guidelines for preventing SCAD or its recurrence. This observational study will be prospective and retrospective in its recruitment and will collect clinical information to better understand the natural history and prognosis for SCAD.

  • Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension Network (PPHNet) Informatics Registry

    open to eligible people ages up to 21 years

    Patients are being asked to be in this research study because medical researchers hope that by gathering information about a large number of children with pulmonary hypertension over time, their understanding of the disease process will increase and lead to better treatment. Investigators believe that pulmonary hypertension in children is different than pulmonary hypertension in adults and this study will help us understand those differences.

  • A Study of Experimental Ralinepag for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Study ROR-PH-303, ADVANCE EXTENSION, is an open-label extension (OLE) study for participants with WHO Group 1 PAH who have participated in another Phase 2 or Phase 3 study of ralinepag.

  • Assessing the Feasibility of BGC101 in the Treatment of PAD & CLI

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Evaluate the feasibility of an autologous cell preparation composed of a mixture of cells enriched for endothelial progenitor cells (EnEPCs) and multipotent adult hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPC) (BGC101), in the treatment of patients suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who have not responded to optimal pharmacological treatment or control of risk factors and/or had a revascularization failure, and do not have the option of further revascularization treatment.

  • Effects of Daily Beef Intake, as a Component of a Heart-Healthy Diet on Cellular Zinc

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The objective of the current study is to test the overarching hypothesis that the beef nutritive matrix is uniquely suited to direct dietary zinc to cellular compartments for improved metabolic function, leading to a greater effect on health outcomes. Specifically, whether beef, as a component of a healthy meal, will promote the absorption of zinc into cells, where the zinc will have greater effects on zinc-dependent metabolic processes supporting cardiovascular health. To maximize the observability of these beef-related effects, individuals who are 55- to 70-year-old who generally have a higher risk of zinc deficiency and cardiovascular disease will be enrolled.

  • The Impact of Diabetes on REvascularization

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The presence of foot symptoms at rest or tissue necrosis in patients with peripheral artery disease is a medical urgency and represents a state of critical limb ischemia (CLI) where the risk of amputation, in the absence of revascularization, is high. No trial conducted to date in peripheral revascularization has determined the effect of diabetes on mechanism of revascularization failure. Therefore, this trial represents a unique opportunity to investigate the mechanisms by which diabetes affects surgical and endovascular revascularization procedures with the long-term goal of improving outcomes in CLI.
