Brief description Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a severe and progressive lung disease with no proven treatment. IPF causes persistent scarring in the lungs that reduces the lungs ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream. The rate at which the disease progresses is highly variable, some patients remain stable while others deteriorate rapidly. This research will look for indicators that predict the rate of disease progression. Understanding this will assist doctors to improve the management of IPF.
