Pulmonary Hypertension Research Study

Pulmonary Hypertension - Research Screening Study

Researchers at the NIH invite you to take part in a study that will help us learn how often people with sickle cell anemia develop a complication called pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension is a serious disease in which blood pressure in the artery to the lungs is elevated.

You are eligible to participate if you are 18 years of age or older and have sickle cell disease. This study consists of an initial evaluation (including a physical exam, blood tests, and an echocardiogram), a follow-up telephone interview every year after the initial echocardiogram, and a repeat echocardiogram and blood tests approximately two years after the first. There is no cost to participate.

Please contact the study coordinator at 301-435-2345 for more information or email VascularStudy@nhlbi.nih.gov
