      I recently read an article by Kate Gates titled, “U.S. House of Representatives Focuses on Pulmonary Fibrosis Research in Report”. The article can be found on the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s website. This is great news to hear! As PF/IPF patients, we know how valuable funding can be to stimulate more research avenues. The article states, “this language encourages the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to focus on pulmonary fibrosis research.” This is the first time budgeting for our disease has been specified, although a specific number for the budget was not given.

       

      The research money referenced is a direct result of “Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Advocates asking their members of Congress to spur PF research by including this language in their funding reports.” Because of the strong voice of our advocates, it demonstrates the lobbying process can work.

       

      Does the designation of funds towards PF research give you hope a cure or another viable treatment is on the horizon?
