Date:9/21/2011

olved in fibrotic processes, it is believed that BIBF 1120 has the potential to reduce disease progression, namely slowing the decline of lung function. BIBF 1120 is also in clinical development as a treatment option for cancer, including non-small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma.

About Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and severely debilitating lung disease with a high mortality rate, for which there are no approved treatments in the U.S. Research indicates that IPF affects approximately 100,000 Americans. IPF is characterized by inflammation and scarring of lung tissue and loss of lung function over time. Development of scarred tissue is called fibrosis. Over time, as the tissue thickens and stiffens with scarring, the lungs lose their ability to take in and transfer oxygen into the bloodstream, and vital organs do not get enough oxygen. As a result, individuals with IPF experience shortness of breath and often have difficulty participating in everyday physical activities.
