  • Role of the Gut Microbiome in Pulmonary Hypertension Jacksonville, Fla.

    Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a progressive, symptomatic, and ultimately fatal disorder for which there are no effective therapies. Resident gut microbiota are now recognized as potent modifiers of the host immune responses in various pathologies. Evidence from animal studies suggest that the microbial composition is altered in lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorders (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. Our goal in this study will be to determine and compare the gut microbial composition between healthy individuals and pulmonary hypertensive patients.
