The rates of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis-related mortality differ significantly based on sex, race and age, according to a study published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
The researchers included 401,567 records of adults who died of IPF from 2000 to 2017. The overall age-adjusted mortality rate was 18.81 per 100,000 persons in 2000 and 20.66 per 100,000 in 2017, with regression analysis demonstrating a positive temporal trend during the study period (P < .0001).
