The prevention of lung fibrosis consists of the treatment of the above mentioned diseases, smoking cessation and stopping other unhealthy habits.

Symptoms of fibrosis

Classification of fibrosis

Lung fibrosis can have an acute and a chronic form. In contrast to its chronic form, acute fibrosis occurs relatively rarely and lasts for 2-3 weeks. The chronic form of fibrosis develops gradually. Doctors distinguish between three stages of fibrosis, depending on the grade of lesions of lung tissues:

In the bilateral cirrhosis of the lungs, the person dies from respiratory or heart failure or thromboembolism. This disease increases the risk of cancer formation by 14 times, which can cause death even on early stages of fibrosis.

Medical treatment of pulmonary fibrosis

Treatment of fibrosis on the early stages is combined of drug therapy and oxygen inhalation. In case of large fibroblast foci doctors remove of the damaged part of the lung. If fibrosis has developed into the stage of cirrhosis, the only treatment option is lung transplantation. Adequate and timely treatment can guarantee the patients normal life expectancy.

Hannover Medical School scientists investigate fibrosis of the lungs


A working group of the Hannover Medical School (MHH) around Danny Jonigk from the Institute of Pathology wants to develop therapeutic options for previously incurable lung diseases. In the next five years, the team will be examining around 700 diseased lungs, which will be taken from patients by transplants. In 2017, around 120 lungs were transplanted at the MHH.

Jonigk uses these lungs to study, in particular, the mechanism of so-called fibrosis, which is at the center of the disease. This is the abnormal proliferation of connective tissue in the lungs that causes the lung to stop functioning properly. Macrophages play a key role in this process. These cells are to be modified by means of a so-called gene scissors so that they can halt or reverse the course of the disease.

In the long term, these macrophages should be administered to patients by infusion or inhalation for therapeutic purposes. The scientists work very closely with working groups of the MHH Clinic for Cardiac, Thoracic, Transplantation and Vascular Surgery, the MHH Clinic for Pulmonology and the MHH Institute for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology.
