Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a fatal growing problem, with limited therapeutic options. Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-β1) plays a critical role in many pathological processes that ...
Recombinant human soluble thrombomodulin (rhTM) was approved in 2008 and has been used for treatment of disseminated intravascular coagulation in Japan. The antifibrotic effects of rhTM in acute exace...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is the commonest interstitial lung disease. Radiologists play an essential role in making an accurate diagnosis, and this is necessary given its prognostic implications a...
Although safety and tolerability of approved antifibrotics has been reported extensively, little is known about their effects on weight. We analyzed predictors of weight change after one year of unint...
Aim Liver fibrosis represents a massive global health burden with limited therapeutic options. Thus, the need for curative options is evident. Thus, this study aimed to assess the potential antifibrot...
This is a Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 2 doses of GED-0507-34-Levo in subjects with activ...
Pirfenidone (PFD), an oral antifibrotic drug with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, has been granted marketing authorization by the European Medicine Agency and FDA, for the t...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a prototype of chronic, progressive, and fibrotic lung disease. It has been considered rare, with an incidence estimated to 11.5 cases per 100 000 in...
To assess the long-term safety and efficacy of oral pirfenidone in doses of up to 40 mg/kg/d in a limited number of patients with pulmonary fibrosis/idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (PF/IPF)
Progressive pulmonary sarcoidosis occurs in up to twenty percent of patients who require persistent treatment, but available treatment options have shown considerable long-term toxicity an...
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 process in which normal lung tissues are progressively replaced by FIBROBLASTS and COLLAGEN causing an irreversible loss of the ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream via PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Patients show progressive DYSPNEA finally resulting in death.
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.
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.
Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
