Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
Inclusion Criteria :
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
|Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris|
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.
|Jean-Marc NACCACHE, PH|
|Principal Investigator Affiliation||Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris|
Category of organization(s) involved as sponsor (and collaborator) supporting the trial.
The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
|Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis|
Acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (AE-IPF) is a major event of IPF with an annual incidence between 5 and 10% and is responsible for the death of one third of IPF patients. When AE-IPF occurs, it is associated with poor survival with an overall mortality at 3 months upper of 50%. To date, no treatment has been proved to be effective in AE-IPF but the efficacy of CYC on survival has been suggested, mainly by retrospective series and needs to be confirmed. This confirmation is mandatory to improve prognosis of AE-IPF but also to avoid unsuspected deleterious effect as it as been shown with immunosuppressor in stable IPF.
