Pulmonary Hypertension | Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis | Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension | US | 2022

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, life-threatening disorder characterized by high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs. It is a progressive condition marked by considerable morbidity and mortality. A wide array of drugs are available to treat PAH in the U.S. market. Phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors and endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs) are the most prescribed first-line treatments; the more-efficacious prostacyclin therapies are used in later lines. Branded therapies feature highly in the PAH treatment algorithm, and combination therapy is common. Using a longitudinal claims data analysis, we demonstrate how newly diagnosed and recently treated PAH patients receive pharmacotherapy in the United States.
