Evaluating patient risk status

Prognostic implications of NYHA functional class

REVEAL Registry observational analysis: FC III patients who improved to FC I-II within 1 year of enrollment had a significantly better prognosis than patients who remained in FC III or worsened to FC IV.1*

Reveal FC III Patients1 12 months post-enrollment (N=982)
Improved FC FC Unchanged Worsened FC
27% 66% 8%

Lack of improvement in key clinical indicators correlated with poorer prognosis compared with patients whose indicators improved.2

REVEAL: Nearly 7 in 10 patients may be at risk of a poor prognosis, compared to patients with improving indicators2

*Only patients who obtained a follow-up FC assessment within 1 year of enrollment were included. The first follow-up FC assessment was performed at a mean ± SD of 4 ± 3 months.1

Specific Populations

Indication

Remodulin is a prostacyclin vasodilator indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH; WHO Group 1) to diminish symptoms associated with exercise. Studies establishing effectiveness included patients with NYHA Functional Class II-IV symptoms and etiologies of idiopathic or heritable PAH (58%), PAH associated with congenital systemic-to-pulmonary shunts (23%), or PAH associated with connective tissue diseases (19%).

In patients with PAH requiring transition from epoprostenol, Remodulin is indicated to diminish the rate of clinical deterioration. Consider the risks and benefits of each drug prior to transition.
