|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01590108|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 2, 2012
Last Update Posted : February 17, 2016
The purpose of this study is to
- Determine blood peptide levels and investigate any tissue gradients of apelin in patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension and healthy volunteers.
- Evaluate the effect of exogenous apelin infusion on exercise performance in healthy volunteers and patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension.

Subject will perform cardiopulmonary exercise testing and receive (Pyr1)apelin-13 intravenously.
(Pyr1)apelin-13 will be infused at 30 nanomol/min intravenously. This dose has been used in healthy volunteer and patients groups
Placebo Comparator: Control
Subject will take cardiopulmonary exercise testing with receive placebo
