Sildenafil Citratefor Morgagni Hernias

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs in approximately 1 in 3000 US live births, similar to the incidence seen within the Utah Birth Defects cohort. The diaphragmatic defect compromises lung growth and alters pulmonary vascular development. This is reflected postnatally as respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension (PH) and overall cardiopulmonary dysfunction, particularly post-repair. Currently, optimal management of post-repair PH remains poorly investigated. Sildenafil citrate is a highly selective phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor that increases cGMP levels, leading to smooth muscle relaxation and an anti-proliferative effect within the pulmonary vasculature. It is used off-label for many neonatal PH disorders, including PH associated with bronchopulmonary dysplasia and idiopathic persistent PH. Most neonates with CDH born within the Mountain West referral basin are managed at a quaternary care center, Primary Children's Hospital (PCH). Of these neonates with PH, approximately 25% have been treated with off-label sildenafil. However, neither the PCH clinical care group nor others have developed/published a standardized approach for either initiating or discontinuing sildenafil therapy in this group of patients. Thus, the aim of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of sildenafil therapy for PH in neonates with CDH within the Utah cohort. Given the relatively short-term outcome and small sample size for this trial, the plan is to use this data to support a larger multicenter randomized trial targeting long-term cardiopulmonary outcomes of infants with CDH and post-repair PH.

Sildenafil Citratefor Lung Diseases

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a condition characterized by airway obstruction. Patients with COPD experience significant shortness of breath on exertion. The mechanisms responsible for shortness of breath on exertion are well understood in moderate and severe COPD, but, are poorly understood in mild COPD where symptoms appear disproportionate to the degree of airway obstruction. Mild COPD patients show an exaggerated breathing response to exercise, determined by the breathing response to carbon dioxide production (V̇E/V̇CO2). Recent work suggests that the increased V̇E/V̇CO2 during exercise in mild COPD is secondary to increased deadspace (i.e. lung regions with ventilation but no perfusion) and/or ventilation/perfusion (V̇A/Q) inequality (poor matching of ventilation to perfusion). Researchers have proposed that the increased deadspace or V̇A/Q inequality is secondary to pulmonary vascular dysfunction and hypoperfusion of the pulmonary capillaries. Recently, we have shown that inhaled nitric oxide, a potent dilator of pulmonary vasculature, reduces shortness of breath and V̇E/V̇CO2, and improves exercise capacity in mild COPD. This preliminary finding suggests that pulmonary vascular dysfunction is an important contributor to exercise intolerance in mild COPD. Here, we aim to test whether sildenafil, an oral pulmonary vasodilator, can improve exercise tolerance and shortness of breath in mild COPD.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
