About Edanib 150 Soft Gelatin Capsule 10’s
Edanib 150 Soft Gelatin Capsule 10’s belongs to the category of ‘anti-fibrotic medicine’ and it is primarily used to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in adults. IPF is an irreversible disease that is marked by a progressive decline in lung function. The tissues in the lungs become swollen and scarred over time, due to which it gets difficult to breathe deeply. The scarring makes it hard for the lungs to work properly.
Edanib 150 Soft Gelatin Capsule 10 contains ‘Nintedanib’, which helps in reducing the scarring and swelling in the lungs by decreasing the release/activity of naturally occurring growth factors in the body, thereby helping you breathe better. Edanib 150 Soft Gelatin Capsule 10’s helps in slowing down the progress of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
