When patients’ lung function
continues to decline

SUSPECT
PULMONARY
FIBROSIS

Pulmonary fibrosis is a common threat across a wide range of ILDs, including
autoimmune ILDs, that may lead to irreversible harm and early mortality1-6

FOLLOW the PATH. SCROLL TO SEE THE SIGNS

ILD, interstitial lung disease.

RECOGNIZE THE

SYMPTOMS

ILDs associated with fibrosis and disease progression (worsening) are
also known as chronic fibrosing ILDs with a progressive phenotype7

DLco, diffusing capacity of the lungs for carbon monoxide; HRCT, high-resolution computed tomography;
FVC, forced vital capacity; PFT, pulmonary function test.

SEE THE

RANGE OF ILDs

While IPF is the prototypical fibrotic ILD with progression, other
fibrotic ILDs may develop progression of pulmonary fibrosis7

IIP, idiopathic interstitial pneumonia; iNSIP, idiopathic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia; IPAF, interstitial pneumonia with autoimmune features; IPF, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; MCTD, mixed connective tissue disease; RA, rheumatoid arthritis; SSc, systemic sclerosis.

Select a patient and learn how pulmonary fibrosis was identified
across patients with a diverse range of ILDs

IDENTIFYING

PROGRESSION OF PULMONARY FIBROSIS

Patient with ILD

Obtain baseline clinical values upon suspicion or diagnosis of ILD to identify future progression using tools such as PFTs and HRCT imaging13,14

Signs and symptoms of progressing pulmonary fibrosis

Watch for declining lung function, increasing fibrosis on HRCT, and worsening respiratory symptoms, including cough and dyspnea2,3,6

Suspect progressive fibrosing ILD

Monitor the lungs proactively and routinely for progression of pulmonary fibrosis15

Identifying progression in patients as early as possible allows earlier opportunity for clinical management16,17
