Next Generation Diagnostics and Treatment for Pulmonary Fibrosis
Eleven P15 focuses on the development of biomarkers that enable early detection of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and the discovery of genetically-targeted therapeutic approaches to treat and prevent this incurable disease.
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic, fibrosing interstitial pneumonia of unknown cause, occurring primarily in older adults, and localized to the lung. IPF is a fatal disease with median survival at 3-5 years. Two drugs have been approved for treatment of IPF, but these drugs fail to reverse scarred lung tissue or to improve survival. Accurate diagnosis of IPF is challenging. In a national IPF survey, 42% endured a year or more between first experienced symptoms and diagnosis; 55% were misdiagnosed at least once.
