In this case, when a patient with interstitial pneumonia was given platinum palladium, improvement in respiratory function was observed. Generally, various treatment methods are used for interstitial pneumonia, but conservative therapy has been the main focus and no curative solution has been reached. In this case, there was a tendency for improvement in patients who took platinum palladium, so we reported it. Since it is only drunk, it is not invasive and has great benefits for patients. It has also been reported that COPD, which is also a respiratory disease, showed an improvement tendency by drinking platinum palladium. Although the mechanism is still unknown, it is considered that it is largely due to the antioxidant action by platinum palladium and the activation of AMPK. In the future, we would like to examine further cases and improve the mechanism.
