Although the research team has conducted only an animal experiment, Fu stressed that the finding has been a breakthrough in dealing with IPF and has been published in the medical journal Theranostic.
Boehringer Ingelheim has developed OFEV (nintedanib), an antifibrotic drug shown to slow disease progression by reducing lung function decline and currently approved for the treatment of IPF in more than 70 countries around the world including the US, the EU and Japan.
Brilaroxazine is a potent inhibitor of the 5-HT2A/2B/7 receptors and attenuates these functional changes in highly recognized translational animal models proven to emulate IPF and PAH conditions in humans.
If a UIP pattern is noted on HRCT and/ or histopathology, a diagnosis of IPF is made when no "secondary" causes for the ILD can be identified after a reasonably diligent history, physical examination, and laboratory investigation.
Ramesh Mannath, IPF president in Dubai, stated that the minister also promised to sort out the equivalency certificate crisis faced by around 800 Indian teachers who studied in private colleges in Kerala and currently face a threat to their jobs here.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an age-related and progressive interstitial lung disease, with a life expectancy of 3-5 years after diagnosis.[1] Accumulating evidence indicates that genetic factors, both common and rare variants, contribute significantly to the pathogenesis of IPF.[2] Genome-wide association studies have identified several common variants linked to IPF risk, for example, the most widely replicated variant rs35705950 located in the promoter region of the MUC5B gene.[3],[4],[5] Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have facilitated the identification of rare genetic variants.

'That is why it is important we learn more about what potentially caused this cluster of IPF among dentists so that we can identify specific risks and work to reduce potentially high-risk exposures.'
In June 2017, the electronic medical records of all 894 patients with a diagnosis of IPF treated at the Virginia specialty clinic during September 1996-June 2017 were reviewed to identify patients having the occupation of dentist, dental hygienist, or dental technician.
