Two New Studies for IPF Patients

Two new studies are gearing up at LA BioMed for IPF patients to begin mid-2019.

“There are some small hints in the scientific literature that exercise training, as part of a pulmonary rehabilitation program, might help to slow the rapid decline in lung function seen in some IPF patients.”

– Principal Investigator, Dr. Harry Rossiter.

PERF board members, Dr. William Stringer and Dr. Harry Rossiter hope to identify whether reducing inflammation through exercise training – either on its own, or combined with anti-inflammatory medication – may potentially protect against lung function decline and ameliorate the negative effects of comorbid conditions.

Contact the Rehabilitation Clinical Trials Center at LA BioMed on +1 310 222-8200 or see https://rctc.dgsom.ucla.edu/pages/ for more information.
