Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of Pamrevlumab in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
This is a Phase 3 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 30 mg/kg intravenous (IV) infusions of pamrevlumab administered every 3 weeks as compared to placebo in subjects with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of PLN-74809 in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
A Phase 2a, multicenter, 3-part, randomized, double-blind, dose-ranging, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and PK of once-daily treatment with PLN-74809 in participants with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of Rituximab With Mycophenolate Mofetil in Patients With Interstitial Lung Diseases
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy on lung function 6 months after one course of rituximab (2 infusions) and mycophénolate mofétil (MMF) treatment compared to one course of placebo and 6 months of MMF treatment in a broad range of patients with Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILD) non-responders to a first line immunosuppressive treatment.
Evaluation of Novel Lung Function Parameters in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)
Current diagnostic tools used in interstitial lung disease (ILD) do not meet the challenges set by the complex pathophysiology of this heterogenous group. The investigators therefore aimed to evaluate novel or not widely used diagnostic approaches for the detection and therapeutic monitoring of patients with various ILDs.
Evaluation of the Serum Soluble Fractalkine as a Biomarker of Pulmonary Fibrosis in Systemic Sclerosis
Systemic Scleroderma (SCS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by vascular involvement, a dysimmune condition, cutaneous and visceral fibrosis. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) affects 75% of SSc patients and is the leading cause of death in SSc. No diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers of SSc-associated ILD have been validated to date. The search for such a serum biomarker is essential to assess the severity of these patients and to help the therapeutic management. We have shown that soluble fractalkine is elevated in SSc patients, especially in SSc patients with ILD. The fractalkine is both an endothelial adhesion molecule and a...
Exercise Hemodynamics in Patients With Pulmonary Fibrosis
The study evaluates the rest and exercise hemodynamics of patients presenting either idiopathic fibrotic pulmonary disease or pulmonary fibrosis secondary to connective tissue disease.
Explanted Lung Tissues With Pulmonary Fibrosis
The goal of this study is to use the tissues from the explanted lungs in order to better study the cause of pulmonary fibrosis at a cellular level.
Exploring the Utility of Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Lung Disease
This is a single centre exploratory study that aims to apply hyperpolarized xenon-129 (129Xe) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods and measurements in individual patients with and without lung disease to better understand lung structure and function and evaluate response to therapy delivered as a part of clinical care.
Extracorporeal Photopheresis in Lung Transplant Rejection for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Patients
Background/Rationale Acute rejection (AR) is common in the first year after lung transplantation. AR has usually been reversible with treatment, but it can trigger chronic rejection that is the leading causes of late morbidity and mortality. Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) has emerged as a promising treatment for chronic rejection. The investigators postulate that the immunoregulatory property of ECP could promote graft tolerance immediately after lung transplantation. Objectives The aim of this trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ECP as induction therapy for prevention of AR in recipients affected with cystic fibrosis in...
