Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is expressed in a variety of pulmonary pathological conditions including pulmonary vascular disease and pulmonary fibrosis. Bosentan (an oral dual ET-1 receptor antago...
TRK-250 is a nucleic acid medicine that inhibits the progression of pulmonary fibrosis by selectively suppressing the expression of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) protein, at ...
To assess the long-term safety and efficacy of oral pirfenidone in doses of up to 40 mg/kg/d in a limited number of patients with pulmonary fibrosis/idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (PF/IPF)
This Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study will compare the efficacy and safety of ambrisentan to placebo in subjects with pulmonary hypertension associa...
The purpose of this study is to determine if study drug (BMS-986020) dose of 600 mg once daily or 600 mg twice daily for 26 weeks compared with placebo will reduce the decline in forced vi...
A Randomized, Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled, Dose-Escalation Phase 1 Study of Aerosolized Pirfenidone Delivered via the PARI Investigational eFlow Nebulizer in Volunteers and Patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
This clinical trial evaluated the pharmacokinetics and safety/tolerability of inhaled pirfenidone solution in volunteers and patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Pulmonary fibrosis is observed in a substantial number of patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV), 15% in a recent German series, and may be more frequent in Asian populations. ANCA are usually...
Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) is a syndrome that results from tobacco smoking. Emphysema and fibrosis in CPFE patients have been considered to exist separately, with emphysema in th...
Current guidelines for the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) provide specific criteria for diagnosis in the setting of multidisciplinary discussion (MDD). We evaluate the utility and re...
GLPG1690 is an autotaxin inhibitor in development for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Several publications suggested a role of autotaxin in the control of disease-affected lung functio...
A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.
A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.
A process in which normal lung tissues are progressively replaced by FIBROBLASTS and COLLAGEN causing an irreversible loss of the ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream via PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Patients show progressive DYSPNEA finally resulting in death.
Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.
