Date:10/17/2007

Legislation formally calls for research into treatment, cure for devastating lung disease

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis (CPF) announced the passage of important legislation that recognizes the need for research into the cause of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a deadly lung disease with no known cause, no FDA-approved treatment, or cure and a diseases which claims 40,000 lives a year, the same number as are lost to breast cancer.

House Concurrent Resolution 182 (H. Con. Res. 182) passed by a vote of 414-0. The resolution raises the importance of the urgent need to identify viable treatments and an eventual cure for IPF, a disease that is becoming alarmingly more prevalent in the United States.

Nathan Deal (R-GA) for introducing the resolution and Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) and Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE) for their co-sponsorship. We are also grateful to the late Rep.

Rep. Vito Fossella (R-NY) said, "The purpose of this resolution is to bring awareness to the severity of this devastating
