  Purpose

This is a multicenter observational case-control analysis lasting 12 months aimed at determining the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension (PAH) in patients with Thalassemia Major and Intermedia. The patients will be followed, treated and examined according to the best standard clinical practice dictated by the Italian Society for the study of Hemoglobinopathies (SITE), Thalassemia International Federation (TIF)and the Task Force for Diagnosis and Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension of European Society of Cardiology (ESC); European Respiratory Society (ERS); International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) guidelines.


Condition Intervention
Thalassemia Major
Thalassemia Intermedia
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Other: Physician standard-of-care according to ESC/ERS Guidelines

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Observational Multicenter Study Lasting 12 Months to Determine the Prevalence of Pulmonary Hypertension (PAH) in Patients With Thalassemia Major and Intermedia and Verify the Suitability of Common Diagnostic Criteria in This Population

Further study details as provided by Ente Ospedaliero Ospedali Galliera:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of the prevalence [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Determination of the prevalence, defined as the total number of cases in the population, divided by the number of individuals in the population.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Critical evaluation of current diagnostic criteria [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Critical evaluation of current diagnostic criteria taking into account the peculiarities of the observed of PHA in thalassemic patients.


Estimated Enrollment: 1500
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
group a)
Patients with pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) assessed (by echocardiogram) <36 mmHg or a tricuspid regurgitant jet velocity (TG) <3 m / sec and data on PAP and mean left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) > 50%
Other: Physician standard-of-care according to ESC/ERS Guidelines
Physician standard-of-care
group b)

Patients with:

PAP estimated (by echocardiography)> 40 mmHg or TG> 3.2 m / sec and LVEF> 50% As indicated by the Guidelines, patients b) with increased PAP (TG> 3.2 m / sec or> 40 mm Hg) will be further studied using RHC and vasoreactivity testing. Angio CAT, 6MWT and BNP.

Other: Physician standard-of-care according to ESC/ERS Guidelines
Physician standard-of-care
group c)
patients with PAP estimated (by echocardiography) in the range of values > 3 m / sec (TG) and <3.2 m / sec or> 36 mm Hg and <40 mmHg and LVEF> 50%
Other: Physician standard-of-care according to ESC/ERS Guidelines
Physician standard-of-care
