Study Identifies New Gene Mutations Associated with Heritable PAH

A Japanese study of nine families members who have heritable pulmonary arterial hypertension (HPAH) found different mutations in the same gene, called BMPR2, four of which had been identified before and four newly identified. Researchers also found a new mutation in another gene, KCNK3, that caused HPAH in another family. The researchers believe…
