Legal Assistance for PPH & Diet Drug Victims since 1997  

FLOLAN - PPH

FLOLAN THERAPY: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare lung disease in which blood pressure in the pulmonary artery rises above normal levels for no apparent reason.  It is believed that the use of fenfluramine and dexfluramine has  greatly increased the numbers of patients with  Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) and PH. Both diseases involve both the heart and lungs, but unless it's caused by another disease, it appears to start in the lungs. The blood vessels that supply the lungs constrict and make the walls thicken and unable to carry as much blood. Like a garden hose with a kink in it, pressure builds up and backs up. The heart works them harder, trying to force blood through. Eventually it can't keep up and there is less blood circulating through the lungs to pick up oxygen. Patient's become tired, dizzy, and short of breath. Swollen ankles and legs, chest pain, and heart palpitations are also common symptoms. Without treatment, PH is usually fatal within three years of diagnosis. In the United States about 300 new cases of PH are diagnosed each year. The greatest numbers are in women between the ages of 21 and 40. In about 6 percent to 10 percent of cases, PH is genetic. Diet suppressants, cocaine, HIV and pregnancy are thought to trigger constriction or narrowing in the pulmonary artery that can lead to PH.

 FLOLAN TREATMENT: In 1995 the FDA approved the use of Flolan to treat PH. Flolan is man-made but acts like a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It relieves the symptoms of PH by dilating blood vessels, reduces clotting by keeping platelets from clumping, improves cardiac output, and slows down the growth of smooth muscle cells. The problem with Flolan is it has a short half-life of only a few minutes, so it cannot be given in the form of a pill. It's injected intravenously 24 hours a day through a catheter in the chest. A walkman-sized pump and medication cassette is worn on the body or carried over the shoulder. The medicine must be mixed daily and constantly kept cold. Side effects include jaw pain, leg pain, nausea, lightheadedness, joint pain, depression, and a high risk of infection. Patients must have a back-up pump on hand and an emergency supply of oxygen. Even a brief interruption of medication can cause a rapid reappearance of symptoms and possibly even death.

 REMODULIN & UT 15: A new drug, UT-15, is giving patients a much better option. UT15 is based on the Flolan drug but with a chemical change that gives it a longer half-life and makes it more stable at room temperature. The drug is administered through a small tube placed under the patient's skin, with dosage controlled by a small pump about the size of a pager. Like an insulin pump, patients have continuous infusion of the drug but without the daily injections. The injection site is changed every 24 to 72 hours. Unlike Flolan the drug does not have to be kept cold. The most common side effect is pain at the infusion site and flushing in the face. Studies show UT 15 is as effective as Flolan.
