Diagnostic Yield of Transbronchial Cryobiopsy in Diagnosis of Interstitial Lung Diseases
Evaluation of diagnostic yield, feasibility and safety of transbronchial lung cryobiopsies done via bronchoscopy in the investigation of interstitial lung disease in comparison with videothoracoscopy-assisted surgical lung biopsy.
Early Detection of Acute Exacerbation in Patients With Idiopathic Lung Fibrosis - a Pilot Study
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic disease, leading to poor lung function with a median survival of 2-3 years. Acute exacerbation of idiopathic IPF is a complication associated with a mortality rate > 50%. So far, the appearance of an acute exacerbation is unpredictable. Worsening of the IPF accompanies with a decrease of the FVC-value, the lung capacity. So far, studies are missing investigating the correlation between a decrease of the FVC-value and emerging acute exacerbations. Therefore, this study uses daily home spirometry to investigate that correlation. With this study the investigators hope to determine acute ...
Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis - Diagnostic Delay
Patients with newly diagnosed IPF are investigated for the diagnostic delay before a diagnosis of IPF is made.
Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis - Use of Biomarkers in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
All incident cases of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in Denmark will be offered inclusion during a 5 year period and followed up for up to 5 years with measurements of blood biomarkers and measurements of disease progression.
Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of NP-120 on Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Its Associated Cough
NP-120 (Ifenprodil) has been shown to mediate anti-inflammatory responses and reduce pulmonary fibrosis in a murine model of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). In addition, NP-120 significantly reduced both cough frequency and onset in a guinea pig tussive model. The purpose of this proof-of-concept trial is to determine the efficacy of NP-120 in the treatment of IPF and its associated cough.
Enhancing Physical Activity in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease
The level of physical activity (PA) has been shown to be an important predictor for morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD and more recently Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Physical inactivity is a common feature of patients with chronic respiratory diseases. Whereas pulmonary rehabilitation is known to result in benefits in exercise capacity, symptoms and quality of life, these gains will not automatically translate into increases in physical activity. Therefore, the present study aims to investigate the effect of a physical activity coaching program on the physical activity level of...

Generation of a common European database and biobank Continous assessment and implementation of guidelines and treatment protocols Establishment of a large observational cohort of chILD patients Determination the value of outcomes used in child Assess treatment variations used, deliver data from defined protocols and linked outcomes
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 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.
