Pulmonary Fibrosis Australasian Clinical Trials Network

For the thousands of Australians living with Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF), research means access to life-changing new treatments and hope for a cure. This PF Awareness Month (September), join Australians living with PF, their family, carers and researchers who are standing up as Heroes for Hope to raise awareness and funds for life-changing PF research.

PACT

The Pulmonary Fibrosis Australasian Clinical Trials Network (PACT) is a network of passionate leading clinicians and researchers from across Australia and New Zealand who are working with Lung Foundation Australia to design and implement clinical trials and studies that will improve outcomes for people living with PF. These trials and studies will help discover new advances in the diagnosis, treatments and management of this devastating disease and providing hope to Australians impacted.

A group of expert clinicians from the Centre of Research Excellence in Pulmonary Fibrosis recognised that PF research lagged other serious lung conditions and responded by forming the PACT network – a powerful force for change that has grown significantly and made life-changing impacts since inception just a few years ago.

This period of time is an incredibly exciting time for Pulmonary Fibrosis research as I know some of the technologies that have been brought to bear on this condition are going to defeat it. We are going to understand exactly what causes it and understand exactly what treatments are going to be most effective.
