Book Description :

This book is a comprehensive guide to our current understanding of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), its disease pathogenesis, genetic underpinnings, diagnosis, and management. Since the first edition, many new developments have occurred in the understanding and management of this serious disease, revising our understanding of how it presents, manifests, and reacts to certain treatments. This second edition is fully updated with six new chapters by our team of international, expert authors. New topics include: classification of interstitial lung disease, pulmonary function tests in IPF, biomarkers, clinical phenotypes, mimics, and a discussion of clinical trials. Each chapter additionally includes a brief summary of ongoing research and potential future directions. Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: A Comprehensive Clinical Guide, Second Edition is an invaluable resource for clinicians who desire a deeper understanding of IPF in order to better help their patients.

Book Description :

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a steadily progressive and ultimately fatal disease of unknown origin. Recent years have seen advances in our understanding of IPF and a number of guidelines have been published. But many questions remain unanswered, particularly surrounding probable versus definite IPF. This Monograph aims to discuss the latest achievements in IPF, and covers key diagnostic issues, staging of the disease, complications and comorbidities, treatment, unmet patient needs and perspectives for the future. This book will be of interest to all clinicians and researchers in this area.

Book Description :

Abstract: Introduction: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare lung disease with an increased incidence since the last few years. Here, we report our eight-year clinical experience in CHU of Liège, Belgium. Methods: We have studied retrospectively patients recruited from our ambulatory care polyclinic at CHU of Liège from 1 January 2009 to 1 January 2017. We have excluded all patients treated with a specific anti-fibrotic therapy due to incomplete follow-up. The diagnosis of IPF was made according to the ATS/ERS international recommendations (2015). Results: Out of the 114 patients initially selected, 82 cases were found to be suitable for the analysis. The average age was 71.1±9.35years with a male predominance. The median survival was 43.7months (23.6–71.7) with a majority (45%) of patients in the group II of the GAP index. The median rate of annual decline in diffusion capacity of CO (DLCO) was 11%, whereas the sub analysis for group III (according to GAP index) showed a decrease annual rate of 30%. Conclusion: Our results are in keeping with the literature. One of our major finding is that patients in GAP III exhibit an annual rate of mortality of 42% and a median annual decline in DLCO of 30%. This observation highlights the fact that this specific subgroup of patients presents a high risk of morbi-mortality.

Book Description :

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and ultimately fatal lung disease that occurs in older adults. The clinical course of IPF is variable and hard to predict in an individual patient. Nintedanib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor that has recently been approved in the US and European Union for the treatment of IPF. Preclinical studies have shown that nintedanib interferes with processes active in fibrosis such as fibroblast proliferation, migration and differentiation and the secretion of extracellular matrix. The safety and efficacy of nintedanib have been investigated in the phase II TOMORROW trial and in two replicate 52-week randomized, placebo-controlled phase III trials known as the INPULSIS trials. These trials demonstrated that nintedanib slowed disease progression by reducing the annual rate of decline in forced vital capacity, with a manageable side-effect profile. In this review, we summarize key data supporting nintedanib as a treatment for patients with IPF and address key questions regarding the use of nintedanib in the clinical setting.

Book Description :

This clinically focused pocket guide offers a concise yet complete overview of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, covering the most recent information on aspects such as pathophysiology, management, treatment, and clinical trials. The text is easily accessible and offers pulmonologists and other health care professionals with an excellent quick reference tool. Full color images and figures enhance and summarize key aspects of the text. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a condition that affects the alveoli and leads to serious lung damage, and the idiopathic nature of this disease means that the origin or cause is unknown. This disease is relatively rare, affecting 3 in 10,000 people, but it is becoming more common. Physicians should be aware of the early stages and symptoms of this disease so management strategies can be implemented quickly, and the best treatment can be administered.
