Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Serum Bank

2019-07-17 10:05:10 | BioPortfolio


Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common form of chronic idiopathic diffuse interstitial lung disease (DILD) in adults. It is a fibroproliferative, irreversible disease of unknown cause, usually progressive, occurring mainly from the age of 60 and limited to the lungs. IPF is a serious disease with a median survival rate at diagnosis of 3 years.

The aim of the study is to set up a biocollection of serum from patients in a context of idiopathic DILD and a possible or confirmed diagnosis of common interstitial lung disease by chest CT.

Patients will be recruited at the consultations of the Rennes Rare Lung Disease Competence Centre. These will be patients in stable condition or in acute exacerbation of IPF.


This study will initially focus on circulating serum CD163 markers, but a broader proteomics approach could be considered in a second phase to look for other markers of lung diseases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.

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.

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.
