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||18 Years - 85 Years|
Inclusion Criteria:1. Signed informed consent 2. A primary diagnosis of sarcoidosis as defined by the ATS/ERS/WASOG statement or pulmonary fibrosis associated with one of the following conditions: 2.1 Major IIPs (idiopathic interstitial pneumonias) diagnosed or suspected as one of the following:
- - Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis - Idiopathic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia - Respiratory bronchiolitis-interstitial lung disease - Desquamative interstitial pneumonia - Cryptogenic organizing pneumonia - Acute interstitial pneumonia - Rare IIPs diagnosis by one of the following: - Idiopathic lymphoid interstitial pneumonia - Idiopathic pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis - Unclassifiable idiopathic interstitial pneumonias 2.2 Chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis 2.3 Occupational lung disease 2.4 Connective tissue disease with evidence of significant pulmonary fibrosis 3.
Exclusion Criteria:1. Use of any type of PAH specific therapies 2. Episodes of disease worsening within 3 months prior to Baseline 3. Pregnant or breastfeeding females at Screening 4. Administered L-arginine within 1 month prior to Screening 5. Any subject who has been enrolled in any previous clinical study with inhaled NO administered through pulsed delivery 6. On more than 6 L/min of oxygen at rest by nasal cannula for less than 4 weeks 7. Evidence of any connective tissue disease with FVC > 60% in the last 6 months prior to screening unless there is evidence of moderate to severe fibrosis on CT scan in the opinion of the local radiologist/Investigator 8. Evidence of clinically significant combined pulmonary fibrosis with emphysema (CPFE) if > 15% of lung fields by CT scan show evidence of emphysema in the opinion of the local radiologist/Investigator 9. For subjects with sarcoidosis, clinically significant evidence of pulmonary fibrosis on CT scan in the opinion of the local radiologist/Investigator and FVC ≥80% predicted 10. For subjects continuing on open label therapy, the concurrent use of the INOpulse device with a CPAP/BiPAP, or any other positive pressure device 11. Significant heart failure in the opinion of the Investigator 1. LVEF<40% or 2. PCWP on last RHC>15 mmHg (unless concurrent LVEDP <15 mmHg) or 3. Significant diastolic dysfunction on echocardiogram
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.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.
