Secondary Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of 2 dose levels of SAR156597 compared to placebo on IPF disease progression. To evaluate the safety of 2 dose levels of SAR156597 compared to placebo in patients with IPF.

The purpose of the PaTH Network IPF Clinician-Patient Partnership Cohort is to use clinical data from electronic health records (EHR) and patient reported outcomes (PRO) to answer questions of clinical importance to patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, providers, and other stakeholders.

To provide early access and to evaluate the safety and tolerability of nintedanib in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
Sponsor: Boehringer Ingelheim
Study type: Expanded Access
November 2014 - December 2019
Background: - Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic lung disease that becomes worse over time. There is currently no effective treatment for it. Researchers want to study the disease and learn new ways to treat it. Objectives: - To discover new pathways that are involved in pulmonary fibrosis. To develop new drugs that may be used to treat pulmonary fibrosis. Eligibility: - People at least 18 years old with IPF. - Healthy volunteers at least 18 years old. Design: - Participants will be screened with medical history, questionnaire, and physical exam. They will have blood, lung, and walking tests and chest scans. - All participants will have 1 study visit, including: - Medical history and physical exam. - Questions about their breathing. - Blood tests. - Breathing tests. - Six-minute walk test. - Pregnancy test. - Chest x-ray (healthy volunteers) or chest CT scan (people with pulmonary fibrosis ). - Small area of skin may be removed. - Genetic tests of blood and skin samples. Participants will probably not be informed of any findings. Samples may be used to make stem cells for use in research. Participants may be contacted in the future to give consent for this research. - Some participants will have repeat visits over many years, repeating many of the study tests.

October 2014 - January 2017
This is a randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study of vismodegib in patients with IPF. Eligible patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to one of two treatment arms: vismodegib or placebo. The duration of treatment will be 52 weeks. Study drug will be administered daily by the oral route. An 8-week safety follow-up period is included for all patients who receive at least one dose of study drug.

This study will be divided into 2 parts. Part 1 is a randomized, double-blind, single centre, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose (SAD) phase I study designed to assess the safety, tolerability, PK and PD (Pharmacodynamic) of TD139 in up to 36 healthy male subjects. Part 2 will be a randomized, double-blind, multi-centre, placebo-controlled, multiple dose expansion cohort, designed to assess the safety, tolerability, PK and PD of TD139 in up to 24 male subjects and female subjects of non child-bearing potential with IPF.

August 2014 - December 2015
The investigators are trying to understand the role of specific genes in the function of airway surface cells. The investigators know that there are some common genetic markers that are associated with various lung diseases. However, most people with these genetic markers never develop any evidence of lung disease, so it is not understand how or if these markers play a role in disease. Investigators are asking healthy people to provide three (3) tubes of blood as well as a sample of cells from their nose. Investigators will use the blood sample to provide genetic information (specifically, presence or absence of alleles known to be associated with pulmonary fibrosis). Nose cells from individuals with the genetic markers that investigators are studying will be grown in the the lab to allow investigators to learn more about how the cells respond to various forms of environmental stress, such as exposure to cigarette smoke. The goal of this study is to understand how specific genes affect airway cell function.

Despite intense research efforts and clinical trials, there is still no effective treatment that can prolong the survival of patients with IPF. Conventional therapeutic approach includes combination of corticosteroids, anti-oxidants, immunodepressants and immune modulatory anti-fibrotic agents to be discontinued 20 days before screening. The only, so far, therapeutic approach that has been proven effective in terms of prolonging patient's survival is lung transplantation. Nonetheless, not all the patients with IPF are eligible for lung transplantation; there is a significant proportion of these patients that finally succumb while waiting in a lung transplantation list. Therefore, there is critical need for more effective and reliable therapeutic modalities5. Adult Stem Cells (ASCs) seem to represent one of these. Therefore, it is conceivable to assume that adult-stem cells can be easily and safely be applied as a novel therapeutic agent in chronic and fatal lung diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and IPF. Therefore, there is an urgent need to provide a safe, effective and affordable treatment option for IPF patients. New diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic strategies need to be developed to reduce the burden of IPF. Given the present lack of appropriate treatment adjunctive in the therapy of IPF, adipose derived stromal vascular fraction provides new opportunities for development of the same. MSCs are having anti-fibrotic activity and hence may be excellent source to tackle pulmonary fibrosis and hence could be explored for their therapeutic potential for treating Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. MSC's also display membrane-bound and insoluble secreted molecules involved with cell attachment to neighbouring cells and to the extra cellular matrix.18 This cell surface configuration may enable mesenchymal stem cells to home from bloodstream to mesenchymal tissue.14 As limited clinical information is available about use of SVF and MSC in the IPF patients hence this Open Label, Prospective, Randomized multi center comparative study has been undertaken to explore the tolerability & effectiveness of SVF in one treatment arm and MSC in second treatment arm in IPF patients. Adipose derived stromal vascular fraction and Mesenchymal Stem Cells has been found in preclinical studies to be safe and effective
