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.

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 proposed biospecimen repository would be derived from patients diagnosed with ILD. This is to include 500 patients in the repository, with each patient contributing one blood sample. Patients with pneumonia and healthy patients will also be recruited as a control group.
250 patients (male and females >18 years of age) with the diagnosis of fibrotic DILD (IPF (n=100), fibrotic NSIP (n=50), chronic hypersensitivity pneumonia (n=20), sarcoidosis(n=50), progressive rheumatoid lung disease (n=10) and scleroderma lung disease (n=20), 10 patients with other fibrosing disease (fibrosing mediastinitis), and 50 patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
100 healthy participants as a control group.
25 patients with pneumonia as a control group.
Other: - ILD
100 cc of blood collected from a total of 250 ILD patients. This includes IPF (n=100), fibrotic NSIP (n=50), chronic hypersensitivity pneumonia (n=20), sarcoidosis(n=50), progressive rheumatoid lung disease (n=10) and scleroderma lung disease (n=20)), 10 patients with other fibrosing disease (fibrosing mediastinitis), and 50 patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis
Other: - Healthy
100 cc of blood collected from a total of 25 healthy volunteers in order to compare with the ILD participants.
Other: - Pneumonia
100 cc of blood collected from a total of 100 participants with a diagnosis of pneumonia in order to compare with the ILD participants.
