WHY WE NEED YOU TO CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSPERSON

PF is a relentlessly progressive, ultimately fatal disease that affects the lungs, gradually robbing an individual of their ability to breathe. In the U.S. more than 200,000 people are living with PF; 48,000 individuals are diagnosed with PF annually; and as many as 40,000 die annually (1 every 13 minutes). Public awareness of the disease remains very low; there is no FDA approved treatment or cure for the most common form of PF, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF); and there is no national PF surveillance registry to collect data and which is critical to developing successful therapies.

THE GOAL

PFREA Creates a National PF Surveillance Registry A registry would improve data collection and information sharing. This should enable research to move forward more expeditiously. The bills contain a provision for the creation of an Advisory Board of governmental agencies, patients and patient advocates, clinical experts and scientists, and others with expertise in PF. The Advisory Board will be responsible for developing the Registry. The Registry will expand upon existing data and will be made available to the NIH and the Department of Veterans Affairs. It will include relevant data, such as incidence and prevalence, environmental and occupational factors, individual demographics, and other relevant information.
