In the world of pulmonary conditions idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is among the rarest, and up until recently there were no treatments available to help these patients. With the approval of OFEV there is now something that can be done while more research is conducted.

Danny McBryan, MD, who serves as vice president Clinical Development and Medical Affairs, Respiratory, for Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, called the approval of OFEV a "great success story," while presenting data on the medication during the annual CHEST conference being held this year in Montreal. 

For conditions like asthma and COPD the market is flooded with medications and treatment options meant to help patients manage their symptoms. For patients with IPF having even one viable option can make a world of difference.
