Combination therapy for pulmonary fibrosis may be an option

KEY POINT

Combination therapy with nintedanib (Ofev—Boehringer Ingelheim) and pirfenidone (Esbriet—Genentech) for patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) was found to be adequately tolerated, according to results of the INJOURNEY trial published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
