Many medications are used to treat interstitial lung disease (ILD) and its various symptoms. The goals of medication treatment are to make breathing more productive, reduce inflammation, and suppress overactive immune systems.
Treatments for interstitial lung disease in children. There is no single treatment for interstitial lung disease. Our clinicians will develop a personalized treatment plan based on each child’s specific diagnosis and symptoms. We have a multi-specialty group that meets on a frequent basis to review evaluation and treatment plans.
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) comprises a wide range of acute and chronic pulmonary disorders that affect both the airways and lung parenchyma with variable amounts of inflammation and fibrosis. Cough is a common symptom associated with ILD and may be the presenting symptom in some patients.
This disease classification refers to a subset of approximately 130 to 2(X) rare pulmonary diseases that include the fibrosing lung diseases and the granulomatous diseases. Interstitial lung diseases are typically characterized by a marked inflammation at the site of the lung injury.
There are multiple ways that the COVID-19 pandemic will directly affect patients with fibrotic interstitial lung disease (ILD), particularly given their common risk factors for poor outcomes. Practical Considerations for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Fibrotic Interstitial Lung Disease During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic - CHEST
The lung scarring that occurs in interstitial lung disease can't be reversed, and treatment will not always be effective in stopping the ultimate progression of the disease. Some treatments may improve symptoms temporarily or slow the disease's progress.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Ofev (nintedanib) oral capsules to treat patients with chronic fibrosing (scarring) interstitial lung diseases (ILD) with a progressive ...
Interstitial lung disease related to the inhalation of cigarette smoke can occur as a spectrum of injury that includes respiratory bronchiolitis-interstitial lung disease and desquamative interstitial pneumonia. In some cases, interstitial lung disease may be associated with a collection of inflammatory cells (granuloma), as is seen in sarcoidosis.
Learn about the following ways the NHLBI continues to translate current research into improved health for people who have an interstitial lung disease. Research on this topic is part of the NHLBI’s broader commitment to advancing scientific discovery on lung diseases. The NHLBI Stimulates New Treatment Approaches for Lung Disease.
