About IPF

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is a progressive, usually fatal disease that afflicts in excess of 100,000 persons in the United States alone.  According to the Coalition of Pulmonary Fibrosis, approximately 48,000 new patients are diagnosed with this devastating disease annually with 40,000 deaths from the disease each year -- about the same number of deaths as from breast cancer.  Within five years of diagnosis, progression of IPF leads to death in approximately 70% of patients.  There are currently no FDA-approved options for patients suffering from this life-threatening condition.
