The primary purpose of this study is to estimate the percentage of participants in the population considered clinically as not having pulmonary hypertension (PH) that are positive for PH biomarker (micro ribonucleic acid [RNA]); estimate the percentage of participants in the population considered clinically as not having PH that are positive for PH by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and compare results of the MRI to the biomarker results; to determine the performance of the biomarker signatures identified in the CIPHER (NAPUH0001) study in terms of sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV), in a population considered clinically as not having PH.

Yes No Not Sure

Inclusion Criteria

Referred for diagnostic work-up for pulmonary hypertension (PH)
With low or intermediate (but not high) probability of PH by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) according to European Society of Cardiology (ESC)/ European Respiratory Society (ERS) Guidelines if at the time of enrollment Right Heart Catheterization (RHC) is not deemed to be clinically indicated
Medically stable on the basis of physical examination, medical history and vital signs performed at screening. Any abnormalities must be consistent with the underlying illness in the study population and this determination must be recorded in the participant's source documents and initialed by the investigator
Must sign an Informed consent (ICF) indicating that he or she understands the purpose of, and procedures required for, the study and is willing to participate in the study
Must sign a separate approval in the ICF if he or she agrees to provide an optional (DNA) sample for research. Refusal to give consent for the optional (DNA) research sample does not exclude a participant from participation in the study

Exclusion Criteria

Undergone RHC within 2 years
Participants requiring renal dialysis
Participants post-lung or heart transplant
Severe left ventricular dysfunction: left ventricular ejection fraction less then (<) 35 percent
Ongoing Contagious respiratory disease
Clear my responses
