Breathe Easier Knowing There Is Hope
We’ve made a great deal of progress in understanding the genetics of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and we have enormous opportunity in front of us.
Developing a preventative approach
A better understanding of the causes of IPF will allow us to begin developing primary and secondary preventive approaches to treating this disease.
We need your help!
Due to the discovery of genetic causes and risk factors, we have now identified the scale of the problem with specific new cases in the U.S. each year. We need everyone with this risk factor or affected family members to help us.
Early diagnosis before the lung is irreversibly scarred is important and can help IPF patients manage their condition. There is evidence that the disease may be present for up to 10 years before a clinical diagnosis of IPF is made.

How Can I Help?
Sign up to take part in our study. You are eligible to participate if you have IPF or if you have family members with the disease. By comparing your DNA with thousands of other participants, we can start to identify the genetic markers of the disease. Your participation can help lead to early diagnosis and could even save future members of your own family from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
