Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) has been reported as highly prevalent in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and other interstitial lung disease (ILD) populations. Nocturnal oxygen desaturation (NOD), or the total sleep time spent with SpoO < 90% (TST < 90), can occur both with and without associated apnoeas, and is common in ILD. This study aimed to characterize abnormal SDB and extent of TST < 90 in ILD patients and evaluate relationships between TST < 90 and markers of disease severity, development of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and mortality.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an idiopathic interstitial progressive fibrotic lung disease and the most lethal of all interstitial lung diseases. Pirfenidone is a novel antifibrotic and anti-...

A multicenter, multinational, prospective study to clarify, whether the addition of cryobiopsy can avoid surgical lung biopsy in a clinically relevant proportion of patients with suspected...
A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
Water content outside of the lung vasculature. About 80% of a normal lung is made up of water, including intracellular, interstitial, and blood water. Failure to maintain the normal homeostatic fluid exchange between the vascular space and the interstitium of the lungs can result in PULMONARY EDEMA and flooding of the alveolar space.
A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.
A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers which elicit potent inflammatory responses in the parenchyma of the lung. The disease is characterized by interstitial fibrosis of the lung, varying from scattered sites to extensive scarring of the alveolar interstitium.
A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.
