RNAseq of whole blood in 359 idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension patients reveals biological heterogeneity
|EGAD00001007981||Illumina HiSeq 4000||359|
Patients with idiopathic, heritable, or drug-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension (referred to throughout as PAH) were recruited from expert centers across the UK as part of the PAH Cohort study (www.ipahcohort.com). In each case, diagnosis was confirmed by right heart catheterization following established international guidelines, which remained unchanged for the duration of this study. Healthy volunteers were recruited at the same centers and samples processed using the same standard operating procedure at all sites. All individuals gave written, informed consent with local ethical committee approval. Whole blood (3 ml) was collected in Tempus Blood RNA Tubes, and RNAseq was performed using established Illumina methodologies (see online supplement for further details).
