Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

EDM number 1139 in 2012-13, proposed by Stephen Williams on 04/03/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Health services.

That this House notes that there are 15,000 people living with a fatal lung condition called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in the UK; further notes that numbers are increasing and that every year 5,000 people die from the disease; is concerned that despite its severity, little is known about the causes of the disease and no cure or effective treatment is currently available on the NHS; is also concerned that IPF can often be misdiagnosed as the symptoms are similar to that of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and urges the Government to consider ways to encourage more awareness about IPF and generate more research and development to improve treatment for the disease.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
