Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Study

Reimbursement: £610 plus travel expenses or transport reimbursed

About This clinical research study

Do you have Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)?

Do you have a troublesome cough that you can’t shake?

If so, this study could be an option for you.

If you are eligible for the study you will be required to attend 7 outpatient visits over approx. 17 weeks.

The purpose of this trial is to test a new investigational once a day tablet for the treatment of cough associated with IPF.

IPF is a rare, progressive illness of the respiratory system. It is characterised by the thickening and stiffening of lung tissue, associated with the formation of scar tissue called ‘fibrosis’. IPF scars the lungs and causes them to become stiffer and lose their elasticity so they’re less able to inflate and take oxygen from the air. The cough in IPF may be caused by the airways becoming oversensitive and it is hoped that the study medication will reduce this over-sensitivity.

Clinical research studies are performed as a way of bringing about progress in medicine and research. Clinical research studies make it possible to scientifically assess the properties of a drug, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of a treatment or a medical device, or to learn more about a disease and methods to diagnose and monitor it.

If the study is successful, it may be an important step towards developing a promising new treatment.

MAC Clinical Research is conducting a trial to evaluate a potential new treatment for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
