A8 - A PRO/CON DEBATE: CONTROVERSIES IN PAH PATHOGENESIS

05/21/2017
09:15 AM - 11:15 AM
Liberty Ballroom I-L (Level M4), Marriott Marquis Washington
This session will focus on controversies in the understanding of the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). By employing a pro/con debate style, this session will critically evaluate opposing views of how pulmonary hypertension develops, identify points of agreement and disagreement with the ultimate goal to reach a consensus to identify novel treatment targets for PAH.

Scientific Symposium

D88 - LIFE IN THE FAST LANE: USE OF PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS IN PULMONARY DISEASE

05/24/2017
01:30 PM - 03:30 PM
Liberty Ballroom I-L (Level M4), Marriott Marquis Washington
This session will focus on the applicability of cell culture model systems to study pathophysiological alterations in pulmonary disease and right heart failure. Because animal models do not fully replicate the clinical phenotypes of pulmonary diseases (e.g. pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary edema, cystic fibrosis), alternative methods have been suggested to use. The most promising new tool is induced pluripotent stem cells. During the session, we will discuss the molecular determinants of heart and lung development, knowledge that is essential for the development of clinical relevant disease models. Subsequently, we will discuss the most practical and efficient substrate for the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells. Finally, the applicability of pluripotent cell technique in modeling pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary edema, cystic fibrosis and right heart failure will be addressed.
