The group had another great meeting on Monday and we were delighted to have Dr. Dimitra Nikoletou update the group on her recent trip to the 8th International Meeting on Pulmonary Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs which took place in Milan, Italy. Dimitra highlighted the key findings from her research paper, which she presented and entitled…

“Differences in symptoms and cardiopulmonary responses to Treadmill v’s Cycle cardiopulmonary exercise testing and comparison with the 6MWT in Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)”.

The presentation was very interesting and particularly to the group as a number of attendees had taken part in the original study, so it was very satisfying to see the final results nearly 3 years from the start of the study… the general feeling from the group was that It was worth the wait!

As ever there was lively discussion following the presentation, with many questions for Dimitra to answer as well as our usual general discussion and chat over some lovely and obligatory carrot cake and coffee!

With the Easter holidays fast approaching the next meeting of the ILD Support Group will take place on…

Monday 29 April at 16:30, Please note the different date for April and put it in your calendar.

See you then and keep well!
