US Government Licenses New Hypertension Drug

The US Government has licensed Sildenafil to trade under the name Revatio for treating pulmonary hypertension.

Doctors are pinning their hopes on other drugs, originally used in cancer treatment, for not only broadening the blood vessels, but also stopping the excessive growth of cells in the vessel walls.

Researchers are hopeful that the recent developments would help tackle the potentially lethal disorder. Pulmonary hypertension is a condition of high blood pressure in the lungs, which is caused when the thin blood vessels get blocked. It affects the blood circulation system, connecting the right heart chamber to the left chamber via the lungs.

As the right chamber of the heart has to struggle against the lung's narrow blood vessels, thus creating pressure, death from heart failure is the most common result. In contrast to high blood pressure in the main respiratory system, pulmonary hypertension is not caused by the hardening of the arteries. Instead, the muscles in the artery walls grow into the vessels in an uncontrolled manner.

"In terms of molecular biology, it has more in common with tumor conditions," explains professor Marius Hoeper of the Medi
