Patients who have systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease and received nintedanib were more likely to have improved lung function than patients who received a placebo, according to a new study. Not only did nintedanib improve forced vital capacity, but patients who received the drug were less likely to experience declining clinical status and more likely to see their conditions stabilize.
