Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an incurable disease with live expectancy under 5 years. It mostly occurs in elder people either spontaneously caused by environmental influences or as side effect during anticancer therapies. One major issue is that there are still limitations towards early diagnosis of IPF. Therefore, it is important to find new ways to detect development of fibrosis in the lung. Furthermore, through early detection chances for disrupting IPF formation, by e.g. senolytics, could be enhanced.
