In recent years we have experienced an unprecedented increase in our understanding of the general mechanisms of pulmonary fibrosis as well as a major improvement in our definition of the disease.

The major challenge for researchers in the field is to translate the insights derived at the bench into significant improvements in disease management and patient outcome.

In this page we aim to provide information about recent advances in clinical research and translational research in IPF. This information includes abstracts and links to a selected list of relevant publications, information about ongoing clinical trials and access to a customized literature search.
