In brief: PAH is treatable

FDA approved treatments include oral endothelin receptor antagonists, ambrisentan and bosentan; nitric oxide pathway, riociguat, tadalafil and sildenafil; and Prostanoids (iloprost, epoprostenol, and treprostinil) that can be oral, inhaled, or intravenous or subcutaneous infusion.
These treatments widen lung blood vessels and ease the symptoms of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
