A Study of the Natural Progression of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)
We propose to acquire data and blood samples on all patients being cared for by the Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) program. Additionally, we will collect data and blood samples from a control group for comparator purposes. In doing so, we will be able to describe the "phenotypic" expression of these diseases.
A Study to Assess Pulsed Inhaled Nitric Oxide in Subjects With Pulmonary Fibrosis at Risk for Pulmonary Hypertension
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dose escalation and verification study to assess the safety and efficacy of pulsed inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in subjects at risk for pulmonary hypertension associated with pulmonary fibrosis on long term oxygen therapy (Part 1 and Part 2) - REBUILD
A Study to Evaluate Long Term Safety and Efficacy of Recombinant Human Pentraxin-2 (rhPTX-2; PRM-151) in Participants With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
This study will evaulate the long-term safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics (PK) of recombinant human pentraxin-2 (rhPTX-2; PRM-151) administered by intravenous (IV) infusion to participants with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Recombinant Human Pentraxin-2 (rhPTX-2; PRM-151) in Participants With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
This phase III study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of recombinant human pentraxin-2 (rhPTX-2; PRM-151) compared with placebo in participants with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
A Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Oral Ixazomib in Scleroderma-related Lung Disease Patients
The purpose of this research study is to learn about the effects of the medication ixazomib in participants with scleroderma/systemic sclerosis including its safety and tolerability, its effects on skin, lungs and other organs, and its effects on overall health and quality of life.
A Study to Find Out How Nintedanib is Taken up in the Body and How Well it is Tolerated in Children and Adolescents With Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)
The main objective of the study is to evaluate dose-exposure and safety of nintedanib in children and adolescents with fibrosing Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD).
A Study to Test How Well a Medicine Called Nintedanib Helps People in China With Progressive Lung Fibrosis
This study in China is open to people with progressive lung fibrosis (chronic fibrosing ILDs with progressive phenotype) who are at least 18 years old. The purpose of this study is to find out whether a medicine called nintedanib helps people with progressive lung fibrosis. Participants are put into 2 groups randomly, which means by chance. 1 group gets nintedanib as capsules twice a day. The other group gets placebo as capsules twice a day. Placebo capsules look like nintedanib capsules but do not contain any medicine. Participants are in the study for about 1 year. During this time, they visit the study site about 10 times. At...
A Study to Test the Efficacy and Safety of Inhaled GB0139 in Subjects With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 2b trial in subjects with IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) investigating the efficacy and safety of GB0139.
Autoantibody Reduction for Acute Exacerbations of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Acute exacerbations (AE) are a dreaded manifestation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) that presents with rapidly worsening respiratory function over days to weeks. AE account for about 1/2 the deaths in IPF patients, and are refractory to all medical therapies attempted to date. Considerable preliminary data shows pathological B-cell abnormalities and autoantibodies are present in AE-IPF and associated with disease severity. The experimental therapy here (therapeutic plasma exchange plus rituximab plus intravenous immunoglobulin) is mechanistically targeted to ameliorate autoantibody-mediated pulmonary injury....
Autologous Lung Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Interstitial Lung Diseases
Interstitial lung diseases (ILD) are a group of diseases affecting the lung interstitium. The lung scarring that occurs in ILD is often irreversible with only mitigating therapy available so far. This study intends to carry out an open, single-armed, phase I/II clinical trial to investigate whether lung stem cells can regenerate damaged lung tissue. During the treatment, lung stem cells will be isolated from patients' own bronchi and expanded in vitro. After careful characterization, cultured cells will be injected directly into the lesion by fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The safety and efficacy of the treatment will be monitored by ...
