Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes that there are 15,000 people living with a fatal lung condition called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in the UK; further notes that numbers are increasing and that every year 5,000 people die from the disease; is concerned that despite its severity, little is known about the causes of the disease and no cure or effective treatment is currently available on the NHS; is also concerned that IPF can often be misdiagnosed as the symptoms are similar to that of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and urges the Government to consider ways to encourage more awareness about IPF and generate more research and development to improve treatment for the disease.
