Learn About Acute Interstitial Pneumonia

What is the definition of Acute Interstitial Pneumonia?
Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP) is a rare and serious condition that affects the lungs. The signs and symptoms generally develop and progress rapidly. In the early stages of the condition, affected people may experience upper respiratory and/or viral-like symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, and fever. This is followed by the rapid onset of respiratory failure and the need for mechanical ventilation in the majority of cases. The underlying cause of AIP is unknown. Most cases occur sporadically in people with no family history of the condition.

A Multi-center, Non-randomized, Non Blinded, Non-controlled Study to Investigate the Impact of Multiple Doses of BAY63-2521 on Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease Associated Pulmonary Hypertension.

Summary: The purpose of this study is to assess multiple ascending doses of a new drug (BAY63-2521) given orally, to evaluate if it is safe and can help to improve the well-being, symptoms (e.g. disturbed breathing) and outcome of pulmonary hypertension associated with lung fibrosis. Patients living with pulmonary hypertension associated with interstitial lung disease have a risk of increased number of hos...
