Improving Time to Diagnosis
We fund critical programs and services that can improve the diagnostic journey so patients can start therapies sooner, preserve their health and well-being, and enhance their quality of life.
What We Do
Improving Timely Diagnosis
Timely and accurate diagnosis for Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) remains a challenge despite scientific advancements and increased information sharing online.
Time to Diagnosis and Earlier Detection
PF is a progressive and fatal lung disease. Most patients are referred to pulmonary physicians and other experts late in the course of their disease.
Influence of Inhaled Exposures in PF
Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) are associated with inhaled environmental and occupational exposures, including air pollution, second-hand smoke, vapors, gases, dusts, and fumes.
