Idipathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) Pirfenidone Pirfenex

Uses
Pirfenex (Pirfenidone) is a medicine that is used as a treatment for IPF (Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) when symptoms are mild to moderate. Patients affected by this condition suffer from symptoms such as breathlessness, infections of the lungs and coughing which persists. These symptoms occur as a result of the formation of hard tissue in the lungs, resulting in swelling and scarring.

When taken, this drug helps to prevent the formation of certain chemicals that contribute to fibrosis (such as TGF-beta). It also has anti-inflammatory properties, and can prevent the production of TNF-alpha (which can cause inflammation). By reducing scarring on the lungs, this medicine may help to improve the breathing in patients affected by this condition.
