Blood Biomarker May Help Predict IPF Survival

Investigators have discovered a new biomarker in a molecule called cutaneous T-cell-attracting chemokine, or CTACK, that may help determine the course of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The discovery was detailed in the study, “Cutaneous T-cell-attracting chemokine as a novel biomarker for predicting prognosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: a prospective observational study,” published in the journal Respiratory Research. How each case of IPF develops — its severity and speed of progression, for instance — varies from…
