High resolution computed tomography (HRCT) plays a major role in the management of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) by identifying characteristic lesions of usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP). Though HRCT is the standard reference to describe pulmonary structural alterations using a non invasive technique, it is nonetheless a radiating exam which provides limited functional information regarding inflammation. In this trial, the investigators aimed to evaluate whether MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) using ultra-short echotime could be an alternative to HRCT in the assessment of the four morphological criteria required to define an UIP pattern. The investigators also planned to study the clinical value of the additional informations derived from MRI such as contrasts and lung perfusion using functional MRI.
To gain further insight on the characteristics, management, disease progression and the outcomes of patients with IPF, as diagnosed and treated under real-world, clinical practice conditions in Greece. More specifically, this registry will be used to: Provide a comprehensive clinical picture of IPF, Track access to health care and cost of caring for IPF patients over time, Examine the implementation of treatment guidelines used on patients diagnosed with IPF, according to the existing diagnosis guidelines, Characterization of patients on different treatments. To provide information regarding survival and mortality causes, IPF exacerbations as well as IPF patient co-morbidities including myocardial infarction, CNS infarction, other arterial thromboembolic events, deep vein thrombosis, hemorrhage, gastrointestinal perforation and pulmonary hypertension. Data regarding IPF patient hospitalization will be collected and evaluated with regards to potential respiratory causes, and there will be documentation of treatment patterns and economic aspects. Patients will be followed up for 2 years and information regarding IPF treatment changes since the last visit will be collected.
GSK3008348 is being developed as a treatment for IPF. A first-time-in-human study showed that single nebulized doses of 1−3000 micrograms (mcg) GSK3008348 in healthy volunteers were well tolerated, with pharmacokinetic (PK) exposures within the defined limits set in the protocol. The proposed study is a 2-cohort study of single doses, intended to evaluate the safety, tolerability and PK of the drug in participants with IPF not currently treated with pirfenidone or nintedanib, and to obtain preliminary information on target engagement. Cohort 1 will be a 2-period, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled group with at least 7 days washout between doses, and follow-up period of up to 7-14 days. Cohort 2 is optional. It will be designed to further explore safety and to provide additional information on the target engagement profile of GSK3008348. The total duration of the study will be up to 62 days.
Although exercise-induced desaturation is frequently observed in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) short-term effects of supplemental oxygen during walking have not been investigated yet. Given, that walking ability is the most important activity of daily life, the aim of our study is to investigate the effects of supplemental oxygen on endurance walking capacity in hypoxemic IPF patients. In this study patients will perform 3 endurance shuttle walk tests (ESWTs) at 85% of their individual peak performance using medical air (=compressed room air, 2 liters/minute), 2 liters/minute oxygen, 4 liters/minute Oxygen in a double-blinded fashion and random order. Since there are only limited pharmacological treatment options for IPF patients, this study may help to provide novel information about the short-term effects of supplemental oxygen. Furthermore it may help to investigate possibilities to optimize oxygen therapy in order to facilitate patients´ participation in activities of daily life and not at least to improve patients´ quality of life.
This is an active surveillance study to monitor the real world safety of nintedanib in Indian patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. The safety of nintedanib has been assessed in clinical trials. Since only 20 patients from India were enrolled in the INPULSIS trials, the safety data on Indian patients is limited. In this active surveillance, the safety of nintedanib in IPF patients will be examined in Indian real world setting
An objective of JIPS Registry is to examine disease prevalence of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs), considering classification, background, and diagnostic methods based on American Thoracic Society (ATS)/ European Respiratory Society(ERS) /Japanese Respiratory Society (JRS)/ Latin American Thoracic Association (ALAT) guidelines for diagnosis and the ATS/ERS classification of 2002 and 2013.
Patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) experience distressing activity-related respiratory discomfort which is challenging to manage therapeutically. Interventions such as pulmonary rehabilitation, collaborative self-management, supplemental oxygen therapy and oral opiate medications, are variably effective and therapeutic responses to each in individual patients are difficult to predict. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the acute effects of inhaled opiate therapy (fentanyl citrate) on breathing discomfort (dyspnea) in individuals with mild-to-moderate IPF, as well as examine the potential mechanisms of dyspnea relief.
This is an open label study in which eligible IPF subjects who are using supplemental oxygen at rest will receive GBT440 orally daily.
This Phase IIb, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter, international study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of sildenafil or placebo added to pirfenidone (Esbriet) treatment in participants with advanced IPF and intermediate or high probability of Group 3 pulmonary hypertension (PH) who are on a stable dose of pirfenidone with demonstrated tolerability. Participants will be randomized to receive 1 year of treatment with either oral sildenafil or matching placebo while continuing to take pirfenidone.
Born out of the European Union 7th Framework Programme funded project European IPF Network (eurIPFnet), the European IPF Registry (eurIPFreg) has become Europe's leading database of longitudinal data from IPF patients, including control groups of patients with other lung diseases. The registry was initiated with the intention of creating a permanent and continuously growing record of well defined data on IPF in Europe, in order to increase the chances of finding better treatment options for this devastating disease. Clinical colleagues who would like to actively participate (both in terms of patient recruitment and data analysis) are invited to contact us (http://www.pulmonary-fibrosis.net/).
