Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Understanding
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: Overview
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a type of lung disease that results in scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs for an unknown reason. Over time, the scarring gets worse and it becomes hard to take in a deep breath and the lungs cannot take in enough oxygen. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a form of interstitial lung disease, primarily involving the interstitium (the tissue and space around the air sacs of the lungs), and not directly affecting the airways or blood vessels. Some people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis develop other serious lung conditions, including lung cancer, blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary emboli), pneumonia, or high blood pressure in the blood vessels that supply the lungs (pulmonary hypertension).
The most common signs and symptoms of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis are shortness of breath and a persistent dry, hacking cough. Many affected individuals also experience a loss of appetite and gradual weight loss. Some people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis develop widened and rounded tips of the fingers and toes (clubbing) resulting from a shortage of oxygen. These features are relatively nonspecific; not everyone with these health problems has idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Other respiratory diseases, some of which are less serious, can cause similar signs and symptoms.
Although no single test can diagnose IPF, your doctor may recommend a number of different tests including:
- Pulmonary function test (PFT), Six-minute walk test:
- Chest x-ray
- Blood tests
- Computed tomography (CT scan)
- Surgical lung biopsy
Treatment options include corticosteroids, immunosuppressive/cytotoxic agents (e.g., azathioprine, cyclophosphamide), and antifibrotic agents (e.g., colchicine or d-penicillamine) alone or in combination. Pirfenidone (Esbriet) and nintedanib have both been shown to slow the progression of IPF; however, some patients cannot take these medications due to their side effects. Some additional medications can be used to improve the symptoms of IPF, such as shortness of breath and cough. This includes treatment of gastroesophageal reflux with anti-acid therapy and treatment of shortness of breath with opioids (a class of medications that includes morphine). Other treatments include supplemental oxygen, pulmonary rehabilitation (exercise training, education and support for people with chronic lung disease), and lung transplant.
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Emerging Drugs
Pamrevlumab is a first-in-class antibody that inhibits the activity of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), a common factor in chronic fibrotic and proliferative disorders, characterized by persistent and excessive fibrous tissue which can lead to organ dysfunction and failure, and in cancer, characterized by promotion of tumor growth. Pamrevlumab is in Phase 3 clinical development for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted Orphan Drug Designation to pamrevlumab for the treatment of patients with IPF, LAPC, and DMD.
Pamrevlumab has also received Fast Track designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of patients with IPF and LAPC.
- TRK-250/BNC-1021: BONAC Corporation; Toray
TRK-250/BNC-1021 is a nucleic acid medicine that inhibits the progression of pulmonary fibrosis by selectively suppressing the expression of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) protein, a key growth factor involved in lung fibrosis, at the gene expression level. One of the features of the agent is that it is a single strand long-chain nucleic acid with a unique molecular structure employing BONAC’s proprietary nucleic acid platform, and it is expected to be a new nucleic acid medicine that has overcome the issue of stability. Moreover, it is in an aerosol form that can be administered directly to the lung, which is expected to carry the agent efficiently to the target organ.
