The purpose of the study is to determine if miR200 family may serve as a biomarker of IPF.
Interstitial lung disease includes a heterogeneous group of chronic lung conditions that is characterized by exertional dyspnoea and poor health related quality of life . includes idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis of unknown cause And another groups are caused by occupational, inorganic or organic exposure, drug- induced toxicities, or are secondaries to connective tissue disease The clinical course and outcome of interstitial lung diseases are highly variable between different sub types, but survival after diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is only 2.5 to 5 years is a progressive and fibrosing lung disease that is characterized by architectural distortion of the lung parenchyma and is progressive, with a dismal prognosis Also patient with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis generally demonstrate greater abnormalities of exercise induced gas exchange than those with other forms of Interstitial lung disease
This a prospective, longitudinal study of first-degree family members of patients diagnosed with familial interstitial pneumonia (FIP). FIP is the familial form of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which is defined as 2 or more bloodline relatives which have a diagnosis of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP). The most common form of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia in FIP families is IPF (approximately 70%). The inheritance pattern in FIP is consistent with autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance. Therefore, individuals in this study have approximately 50% risk of carrying a disease-associated allele. The causative gene is currently only known approximately 20% of families. The main goal of this longitudinal study is to better establish the natural history of FIP and to identify risk factors for later development of symptomatic disease. The investigators' plan is to follow these at-risk individuals with yearly questionnaires and planned in person 5 year follow-ups through age 70 or until they develop symptomatic FIP.
Part 1: Multiple Rising Dose (MRD) The primary objective is to investigate safety and tolerability of BI 1015550 in patients with IPF. The secondary objectives are to investigate the effect of BI 1015550 on the target engagement biomarker and to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of BI 1015550 Part 2: On top of standard of care (SOC) The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the identified dose of BI 1015550 from Part 1 in patients with IPF on top of nintedanib and pirfenidone, respectively. The secondary objectives are to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of BI 1015550 when co-administered with nintedanib and pirfenidone.
In this study it will be investigate whether a home monitoring program improves disease-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) for patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) through appropriate medication use and subsequently results in better objective and subjective outcomes.
Aim of this study is to investigate the effects of an Oxymizer pendant nasal cannula in hypoxemic patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis during walking.
Descriptive prospective non-interventional multicenter study based on newly collected data of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis patients followed-up for one year in secondary care settings (Pulmonology Services)
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and potentially fatal lung disease. As IPF progresses, patients become increasingly breathless with reduced exercise capacity and quality of life. A cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) is a gold standard way of assessing patients with IPF. An incremental shuttle walk test is simpler, cheaper, more widely available and anecdotally preferable to CPET. The investigators will compare the measurements made in an ISWT and a CPET in patients with IPF . We aim to determine whether sufficient information can be gathered in an ISWT to negate the need to undertake CPET.
This is an interventional double-blind randomized controlled trial, to investigate the short and long-term effects of a supervised exercise training program in patients with IPF, depending on alternate patterns of oxygen supplementation during PR.
Treating and caring for people with long term conditions accounts for a substantial proportion of health care resources. Self-management is advocated as a mechanism that can empower service users with long term conditions to choose healthier options and also transform the relationship between service user and caregivers from one in which the former is a passive recipient of care to one in which they are an active partner in decision-making. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is one such long term condition. Patients with ILD often express concern about the lack of information on possible rehabilitation programmes and other services that could potentially improve self-management of the disease. In addition, there is a general perception about a lack of co-ordination between health care professionals especially in relation to referral to services for comprehensive management of the disease. Therefore, the needs of patients with ILD and their carers, and possible gaps in service provision need to be explored further. In this study, the investigators propose to explore the needs of ILD patients from all types of ILD and all stages of severity and to also involve carers and clinicians. The investigators will conduct three focus groups for patients and carers and six one-to-one interviews with clinicians to explore perceptions about service gaps and needs in two ILD centres in South and North London, UK. This study will provide valuable information to develop the building blocks of a self-management resource and will enable the investigators to make it specific to the different types of ILD.
