Abstract

Background Repetitive alveolar damage and aberrant repair may be important in the development of the fatal condition Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). The role played by microorganisms in this cycle is unknown. Methods We consecutively enrolled patients diagnosed with IPF according ...read more
