Spherix Global Insights, GmbH, a business intelligence and market research company based in Switzerland, recently reported a study revealing that idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) remains a challenge in terms of treatment, especially since the majority of patients are diagnosed at already advanced disease stages.
