Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
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||40 Years - 75 Years|
Inclusion Criteria:1. Patients with interstitial lung disease:
- - Age between 40 and 75 years old upon inclusion; - Diagnosis of interstitial lung disease; - Clinical stability for at least 4 weeks prior to inclusion; - Absence of any comorbidity that interferes with the performance of tests; 2.
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.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Patients will be submitted to the assessment of: Daily physical activity levels; 6-minute walk test; Cardiopulmonary exercise testing; Muscle Function; Lung Function; Body composition; HRQoL - SGRQ-I; HRQoL - SF36; Anxiety and depression; Symptoms - mMRC Symptoms - UCSD/SOBQ; Sleep quality; Sleepiness; Inflammatory markers and oxidative stress. Functional performance tests
: Control Group
Age-matched peers without lung diseases. Participants will be submitted to the assessment of: Daily physical activity levels; 6-minute walk test; Cardiopulmonary exercise testing; Muscle Function; Lung Function; Body composition; HRQoL - SF36; Anxiety and depression; Sleep quality; Sleepiness; Inflammatory markers and oxidative stress.
