As the leading resource for the pulmonary fibrosis
community, the Pulmonary Fibrosis
Foundation created the PFF Care Center Network to help ensure patients receive a swift and accurate diagnosis along with the highest quality of care, which is absolutely critical for effectively managing the devastating group of fibrotic lung diseases," said Gregory P.
Symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis
are mainly: Shortness of breath, Chronic dry, hacking coughing, Fatigue and weakness, Chest discomfort including chest pain, Loss of appetite and rapid weight loss.
While this variant of the MUC5B gene is fairly common, pulmonary fibrosis
is an uncommonly reported disease.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
(IPF) is a medical condition of unknown etiology with poor prognosis in which progressive fibrosis of the alveolar walls produces irreversible "honeycomb lung", in which a high-resolution CT scan of the lung yields a honeycomb pattern.
His history was significant for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
, atrial fibrillation, and prostate cancer.
is an incurable lung disease that can be triggered by inhaling construction debris.
Hypothesizing that idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
may stem from sequential lung injury and subsequent aberrant wound healing without significant inflammation, researchers have turned their attention to drugs that alter fibroproliferative mechanisms, Dr.
In this form of the disease, the patient presents with chronic respiratory complaints, impaired lung function, and evidence of pulmonary fibrosis
The cooperation with InterMune will enable us to determine the efficacy of Imukin in patients suffering from serious diseases such as tuberculosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
and to make the product widely available for the treatment of these patients if the results are positive," said Dr.
He eventually was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis
, and placed on a transplant list in May 1999.
Those who develop idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
at a young age seem to have a longer survival.
