Studies Investigate Emerging Trends and Treatment Options for Patients With Sickle Cell Disease
Date:12/6/2009

g distance test. On pain questionnaires, patients on the sildenafil treatment also reported worsening pain during walking and less enjoyment of life when compared to the patients on placebo.

"Although sildenafil is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and by the European Medicines Agency for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension, the Walk-PHaSST study was prematurely stopped for safety concerns. However, these preliminary data should not be interpreted as implying that sildenafil may not be efficacious and safe in select sickle cell patients with documented pulmonary hypertension who are at low risk for vaso-occlusive events," said lead study author Mark Gladwin, MD, Chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine and Director of the Vascular Medicine Institute at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "Further investigations are critically needed to find a safe and effective treatment for this patient population at high risk for death from this debilitating condition."

Dr. Gladwin will present this study in an oral session on Monday, December 7, at 2:45 p.m. in Room 220-222.
