Abstract: Together with the improvement of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) management arises the need for adequate surrogate markers for treatment decision and follow-up. In this setting, biomarkers play a definitive role. A number of biomarkers addressing specific features of the different pathophysiological mechanisms of PAH, with the ability to describe disease severity and prognosis, have been described. This chapter reviews the characteristics of the different existing biomarkers as the rationale for their integration as the next step for the evaluation of PAH patients. Copyright (C) 2012 S.
