"The pathogenesis of PVOD and PAH is poorly understood and the clinical differentiation between both diseases remains challenging because of similar clinical presentation. Our study is the first to put forward a molecular model with the ability to differentiate between the PH subtypes PAH and PVOD. Our findings promise to help develop novel target-specific interventions and innovative approaches to facilitate clinical diagnostics in an elusive group of diseases."
