Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Research and Trials
Future Research and Clinical Trials
Researchers are conducting clinical trials in Canada and around the world. Some patients enroll in a clinical trial that tests new treatments of IPF. While the long-term goal of IPF research is to prevent and cure the disease, current studies also attempt to slow disease progression, and to increase the life expectancy of patients with IPF. The website www.clinicaltrials.gov can be searched to identify ongoing IPF clinical trials.
