Poll results

1. N/A


2. Talk 2: PH impacts the lung cancer prognosis and survival

Agree - 100%

Disagree - 0%


3. Talk 3: Current animal models of pulmonary hypertension, acute and hyperproliferative in nature, do not predict the effect of anti-cancer therapies in the setting

Yes - 100%

No - 0%


4. Talk 4: Should we focus on signaling pathways identified in cancer to find new actionable targets in PAH?

Yes - 100%

No - 0%


5. Talk 5: TFP is an antagonist of calmodulin and has a cardioprotective effect on left ventricle. In PAH, do you think TFP treatment could improve hemodynamic parameters by playing a role on lung and right ventricle maladaptive remodeling?

Yes - 75%

No - 25%


Talk 6: Lung cancer patients with pulmonary hypertension may profit from guidelines based pulmonary hypertension therapy.

Agree - 75%

Disagree - 25%
