ERS International Congress 2023 will take place at MiCo in Milan, Italy from 9 – 13 September, 2023.
Abstract title: Sigma-1 receptor agonist mitigates bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in mice
The main message of the abstract: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is associated with a median survival of just 2-3 years after diagnosis. Current therapies ameliorate pulmonary functional decrement but do not inhibit the progression of fibrosis or reduce mortality. Thus, effective anti-fibrotic therapies are desperately needed. Based on our previous results in other organs, we investigated whether Sigma-1 receptor agonists can ameliorate pulmonary fibrosis. Our preclinical data suggest that Sigma-1 receptor may be a novel, effective drug target in the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis.
