Welcome to the IPF Learning Zone. IPF is a chronic and progressive fibrotic interstitial lung disease that occurs mostly in older adults, is limited to the lungs and often displays a characteristic imaging and histological appearance. Find out more about IPF in the disease awareness section, such as epidemiology, pathophysiology, symptoms and diagnosis. Learn about the latest interventions available for patients in the treatment section, including treatment pathways and guideline recommendations.

The Medthority team was at the ERS Congress 2019 filming Professors Elisabeth Bendstrup and Kristin Highland.
