New paper just published on Respiratory Research

The paper "Clinical course of IPF in Italian patients during 12 months of observation: results from the FIBRONET observational study" has just been published.

FIBRONET is the first prospective, real-life, observational study of patients with IPF in Italy. The short
time between diagnosis and initiation of antifibrotic therapy, and the stable lung function between baseline and 12 months, suggest that early diagnosis and prompt initiation of antifibrotic therapy may preserve lung function in patients with IPF.
