Dr. Sciurba: Of course, transplantation is not an option for patients over 70 years old, which many of our patients are, so without these types of innovations our options are relatively limited with these patients. We really need to come up with something new, either drugs or devices, which is going to impact our patients with advanced disease.
It’s a quality of life?
Dr. Sciurba: Quality of life is the ultimate thing. Patients don’t care what their lung function is, what they care about is that they can exercise further, they can do more activity, and they have a better quality of life engaging with their family and enjoying life. That’s what our goal is.
