All-Case Surveillance of Ofev in Patients With IPF in Japan

Study Purpose

This is a non-interventional study based on new data collection to gather real-world information (i.e., data under routine medical practice) on safety and effectiveness of the Ofev® Capsules treatment. The study will consist of a baseline visit and follow-up visits at Week 4, 13, 26, 39, 52, 65, 78, 91 and 104 for patients who have newly initiated Ofev® Capsules. The patients will be followed up until discontinuation of Ofev® Capsules treatment. As this is an observational study, no specific treatment is mandated or withheld from the patients. The choice of maintenance treatment for IPF must be according to regular medical practice and at the discretion of the physician (i.e., no randomised assignment of patient to treatment is performed). All patients administrated Ofev® Capsules after the launch at the sites contracted with the sponsor will be registered. The Case Report Forms (CRFs) of 1000 patients will be collected. However the patient registration continues until the approval condition has been removed. Patients participating in the subsequent follow-up will undergo regular observations. These observations should be reported after approximately Week 4, 13, 26, 39, 52, 65, 78, 91 and 104 since the initiation of Ofev® Capsules as long as they continue to receive the treatment. Patients will not be followed any longer once they are reported to have discontinued the Ofev® Capsules treatment.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages N/A and Over

More Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion criteria:

Essentially, patients are diagnosed with IPF based upon the most recent the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the Japanese Respiratory Society (JRS), and the Latin American Thoracic Association (ALAT) guideline.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
