The Assembly on Pulmonary Circulation is pleased to announce its next Journal Club on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 at 1 pm (EST).

We will review five studies presented at this year’s ATS Conference highlighting some of the latest exciting research in the field.  

  1. Targeting Metabolic Reprogramming in Macrophages Activated by Adventitial Fibroblasts in Pulmonary Hypertension as a New Potential Therapy Approach

  2. Clinical Heterogeneity Across Proteomic Immunophenotypes in PAH and Discovery of Proteomic Immune Signatures in PAH by Unsupervised Consensus Clustering

  3. Preliminary Safety and Acute Hemodynamic Effects of rhACE2 in Human Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

  4. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Treatment with Carvedilol for Heart Failure

  5. Results of Interim Analysis of the Efficacy and Safety of Bardoxolone Methyl in Patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Associated with Connective Tissue Disease (CTD) (The LARIAT Study)

 Drs. Karim El Kasmi (University of Colorado), Andrew Sweatt (Stanford University), James West (Vanderbilt), Samar Farha (Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi), and James White (University of Rochester) will join us to discuss the studies presented.

We use a web-based platform, which allows real-time discussion both online and on the phone making this an interactive journal club. Please use a landline phone or VoIP for the call.

You will need to register for the webinar in order to participate in the journal club.  Reserve your Webinar seat today.

We invite your participation in this session and look forward to another insightful discussion. We welcome your proposals for interesting articles to present. Please contact Drs. Goss, Lammi, Elinoff, Jones, or Frump with any suggestions/questions.
