ONLINE COVER High Blood Pressure in the Lungs. Patients with pulmonary hypertension have elevated blood pressure selectively in the lung vasculature, shown here together with the heart and its blood supply. This condition is difficult to treat and in a State of the Art Review in this issue, Sutendra and Mickelakis explore our understanding of the disease’s causes and treatments. They outline the obstacles that have prevented the development of successful therapies to date and suggest productive avenues forward to overcome these barriers. [CREDIT: SCIENCE SOURCE]
