pulmonary fibrosis - TM, copper reduction


Recommended Posts

There are some trials for IPF, Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. IPF is fibrosis that has no known cause. Granted, that fibrosis in lung cancer patients is usually due to radiation, but I wonder if some of these drugs would help with fibrosis due to treatment . Maybe something to ask your Drs about what they think of this?

One is called tetrathiomolybdate

The other is called Pirfenidone.

The interesting about tetrathiomolybdate is that it is being used as a treatement for lung cancer. Look up "copper reduction" and tetrathiomolybdate on google and this board
