A randomized, controlled pilot trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous Abatacept in treating interstitial lung disease associated with the anti-synthetase syndrome.
Multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of abatacept to achieve sustained glucocorticoid-free remission in patients with relapsing non-severe granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) (GPA) . Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive either abatacept 125 mg or placebo administered by subcutaneous injection once a week. Participants will continue on study treatment for a minimum of 12 months unless they experience a disease relapse or disease flare. Participants who experience a non-severe disease relapse, non-severe disease worsening, or who have not achieved remission by month 6...
The purpose of this study is to confirm the efficacy and safety of BaofeiKang Granule in the treatment of Combined Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema patients.
This is a randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled, multicenter, exploratory Phase II study including subjects with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), investigating GLPG1205 of top of local standard of care (defined as receiving nintedanib, pirfenidone, or neither nintedanib or pirfenidone).
The main purpose of this study is to see how GLPG1690 works together with your current standard treatment on your lung function and IPF disease in general. The study will also investigate how well GLPG1690 is tolerated (for example if you get any side effects while on study drug).

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a disease caused by clonal expansion, proliferation, and dissemination of cells that are phenotypically close to Langerhans cells in different tissues and organs. The clinical presentation of LCH varies greatly from one solid bone tumor to multisystem lesion that involves liver, spleen and bone marrow. The basis of LCH is the clonal proliferation of the pathological cells. These cells express CD1a and CD207 markers on their surface and originate from myeloid progenitors. The main event in life circle of these cells is the MEK-ERK cascade mutation. The most common mutation is the substitution of valine...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a disease characterised with significant morbidity and poor prognosis. Dyspnoea and impaired exercise capacity are very common manifestations of the disease, and result in significant impairment of patients' quality of life. Although hypoxemia is common among subjects with IPF, published data on the effects of supplementary oxygen therapy on specific clinical outcomes among these patients are currently few, while the existing data on the potential benefits of oxygen supplementation to treat exercise-induced hypoxemia, in this patient population, are even more controversial. Based on the...
A phase 2b, open label study to assess the safety and efficacy of increasing doses of pulsed, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in subjects with pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis on long term oxygen therapy followed by a long term extension study
A phase 2b, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dose escalation clinical study to assess the safety and efficacy of pulsed, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) versus placebo in subjects with pulmonary fibrosis on long term oxygen therapy (Part 1 and Part 2).
