International treatment recommendation and medicine for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

The International ATS / ERS guideline for idiopathic pulmonary disease treatment was updated in 2015 and the first medicines for the prevention of disease progression, pirfenidone and nintedanibi, were approved in the 2010s. These advances require examination of the effectiveness of the treatment in our patients and harmonizing treatment recommendations.
