Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is one of the most common interstitial lung diseases and is characterized by an irreversible loss of lung function. Roche’s pirfenidone (Esbriet) was the first disease-modifying therapy (DMT) approved for IPF, followed soon after by Boehringer Ingelheim’s nintedanib (Ofev); these therapies set the stage for fierce competition in the IPF therapy market. We explore this evolving space, analyzing the clinical and commercial outlook for pirfenidone and nintedanib. We assess emerging therapies, including FibroGen’s IV-administered pamrevlumab, Roche’s IV-administered PRM-151, and United Therapeutics’ inhaled treprostinil. We also examine current medical practice and identify the areas of pressing unmet need in the treatment of the disease.
