Understanding IPF

IPF is a rare and serious lung disease

How IPF affects the lungs

  • IPF is progressive, which means that over time the scarring becomes more widespread and lung function declines. Doctors can’t predict how quickly this will happen. IPF progresses rapidly for some people and slowly for others

IPF permanently damages lung function

Currently, there is no cure for IPF, but there are treatment options that may help delay disease progression.
