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.

Inclusion Criteria:Newly diagnosed patients with F-ILD according to the ATS/ERS criteria by a multidisciplinary ILD team :

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 disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Nowadays, identifying disease progression will have direct treatment implications in patients with fibrotic Interstitial lung diseases (F-ILDs). eHealth could be a possible solution for close monitoring and detecting disease progression, at a low burden for patients and healthcare providers. The main aim of the I-FILE study will be to evaluate feasibility of a patient-led registry using home spirometry to monitor disease progression in patients with F-ILD. The secondary aim will be to better validate existing health-related quality of life questionnaires to assess the impact of disease and treatment in these patients. In total 700 patients with newly diagnosed F-ILD will be included. Patients will perform daily home spirometry in the first three months followed by once weekly measurements with a follow up period of 2 years. In addition, patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) will be completed online every 6 months. Results are encrypted and directly sent to a secured server through the online I-FILE application.
: Single Group Assignment
Intervention group without a control group
Other: - Home spirometry
Patients will perform daily home spirometry for three months with a Bluetooth-enabled validated, CE-marked home spirometer (Spiro bank Smart, MIR, Italy). Subsequently, patients will perform weekly home spirometry for two years in total. During this period, patients will be asked to perform three measurements each week on the same day. Hospital-based spirometry will be performed according to international guidelines. Patients will complete patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) online in the secured application every six months.
