Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: Coverage from Denver
This newsletter activity highlights the latest developments in the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) presented at an international conference of pulmonologists held in Denver, Colorado in May 2015.
With the introduction of pirfenidone and nintedanib for the treatment of IPF, the field of IPF is rapidly evolving. This conference represents the basis of all information available on IPF, as well as the appropriate application of pirfenidone and nintedanib. Our Faculty Advisors offer insights and key take-away points of the latest research, as well as onsite video commentary of the meeting presentations.
