Seeking to Halt and Reverse Fibrotic Diseases
August 2, 2019
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a serious, life-limiting lung disease characterized by fibrosis and scarring of lung tissue. Patients generally live only about three to five years after a diagnosis. Approved therapies can slow down the progression of the disease, but no available therapies halt or reverse it. The only curative therapy is a lung transplant, an option that is available to only a small subset of patients. Promedior is developing an experimental therapy it believes may not only halt the disease, but reverse it. We spoke to Jason Lettmann, CEO of Promedior, about the company’s experimental therapy, how it works, and why it may have the potential to treat a wide range of fibrotic diseases.idiopathic pulmonary fibrosisrare diseasefibrotic disease
