Session Recording from PHA's 2012 10th International PH Conference
Familial/Genetics and PAH

June 23, 2012

What is familial pulmonary arterial hypertension? Learn about what is known about the genetic basis of pulmonary arterial hypertension, and how this knowledge affects patients and their families. Current genetic tests will be discussed including what is done, where one can get such testing and who pays for the tests. The panel will also address the questions: "Is the treatment any different if abnormal genetic test results are documented?" and "Can genes determine the safety and usefulness of your medication?"
