No health insurance is required to participate. You will receive all study related care from a specialist physician at no cost. The study will include visits to a clinic in your location.
Participants will receive compensation for participating in the study.
What happens if I Sign Up? We will match you to a study site in your area that needs participants with IPF or notify you when one becomes available. The study team will then contact you and you may have the opportunity to participate if qualified.
If you think you might like to participate in the IPF Study or would like more information, please enter your information below so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the studies. Keep in mind that participation is entirely voluntary. If you do decide to take part in a study, you may change your mind about participating at any time.
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a rare type of lung disease that causes scarring, known as fibrosis, of the tissue surrounding the alveoli (air sacs), in the lungs.
Those who have a family history of IPF or are a smoker have a significantly higher risk of developing Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. The risk also increases with age.
The way that IPF advances can present differently in each individual case, however, common symptoms may include:
Over time, complications as a result of IPF may occur, including serious conditions like hypertension and respiratory failure.
Although there are certain medications that may slow the progression of IPF and improve quality of life there is no cure.
The IPF Study is evaluating an investigational drug for adults with IPF.
A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?
All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
The IPF Study will include various visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study will receive compensation for their time and travel. Participation is entirely voluntary. Even if you decide to take part in this study, you can change your mind about participating at any time.
