Assessment of Skeletal Muscle Dysfunction in Patient With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Study Purpose

Interstitial lung disease includes a heterogeneous group of chronic lung conditions that is characterized by exertional dyspnoea and poor health related quality of life . includes idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis of unknown cause And another groups are caused by occupational, inorganic or organic exposure, drug- induced toxicities, or are secondaries to connective tissue disease The clinical course and outcome of interstitial lung diseases are highly variable between different sub types, but survival after diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is only 2.5 to 5 years is a progressive and fibrosing lung disease that is characterized by architectural distortion of the lung parenchyma and is progressive, with a dismal prognosis Also patient with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis generally demonstrate greater abnormalities of exercise induced gas exchange than those with other forms of Interstitial lung disease

Recruitment Criteria

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Accepts Healthy Volunteers
No

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.

Trial Details

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.

Trial ID:
NCT03440489

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.

Additional Details

Interstitial lung disease includes a heterogeneous group of chronic lung conditions that is characterized by exertional dyspnoea and poor health related quality of life . includes idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis of unknown cause And another groups are caused by occupational, inorganic or organic exposure, drug- induced toxicities, or are secondaries to connective tissue disease The clinical course and outcome of interstitial lung diseases are highly variable between different sub types, but survival after diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is only 2.5 to 5 years is a progressive and fibrosing lung disease that is characterized by architectural distortion of the lung parenchyma and is progressive, with a dismal prognosis Also patient with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis generally demonstrate greater abnormalities of exercise induced gas exchange than those with other forms of Interstitial lung disease People with exhibit limitation in peak exercise capacity, which is associated with impaired ventilation, gas exchange and pulmonary perfusion abnormalities Also in people with interstitial lung diseases there is a relationship between quadriceps muscle weakness and exercise capacity raising the importance of skeletal muscle dysfunction. Furthermore, since interstitial lung diseases is the leading diagnosis referred for lung transplant characterizing skeletal muscle dysfunction and its relationship to exercise capacity prior to lung transplant is of specific interest for this population. The cause of muscle dysfunction in individuals with lung disease is multifactorial, including factors such as disuse, hypoxaemia, malnutrition, oxidative stress, systemic inflammation and medication Pulmonary inflammation and oxidative stress are thought to be pivotal in the pathogenesis of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia
