Background. Individuals with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) display reduced oral glucose tolerance. This may involve defects in pancreatic function or insulin sensitivity, but this hypothesis has not been tested; moreover, fasting nutrient metabolism remains poorly described in PAH. Thus, we aimed to characterise fasting nutrient metabolism and investigated the metabolic response to hyperglycemia in PAH. Methods. Twelve participants (6-PAH, 6-Controls) were administered a hyperglycemic clamp, while 52 (21-PAH, 31-Controls) underwent plasma metabolomic analysis. Glucose, insulin, C-peptide, free fatty acids and acylcarnitines were assessed from the clamp. Plasma metabolomics was conducted on fasting plasma samples. Results. Th.

Prostacyclin analogues targeting the prostacyclin pathway are used to treat patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and are given either by an intravenous (IV), subcutaneous (SC) or inhaled route [1]. Continuous IV infusion of epoprostenol has received the strongest recommendation for treatment of the most severe forms of PAH [2], mainly because it is the only PAH-specific drug that was demonstrated to give an improvement in survival in a randomised controlled study [3]. Due to drawbacks associated with its IV administration, epoprostenol is preferentially offered to young, high-risk patients [2]. For PAH patients in New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class (FC) III/IV with severe hemodynamic impairment, epoprostenol
