Non-interventional Study Describing Epidemiology, Prognosis and Patient Healthcare Costs in France, 2010-2017

Study Purpose

Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are a heterogeneous group of disorders, which encompass a wide range of conditions. In some patients with fibrosing ILDs, a progressive phenotype similar to that observed in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) may develop during the course of the disease (PF-ILD), including patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc)-related ILD. The aim of the study is to estimate the incidence and prevalence and to describe the characteristics of patients diagnosed with non-IPF PF-ILD and SSc-ILD, to describe the natural course of disease, and to explore the correlation between mortality and Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) of the patients with non-IPF PF-ILD. This study will be based on two data sources: the French national medico administrative database (SNDS) and the ILD cohort from the National French center for rare pulmonary diseases in Lyon, France.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

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

Study Type

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
Gender All
More Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients hospitalized for PF-ILD and SSc-ILD in France between 01/01/2010 and 31/12/2017 - Men or women aged ≥ 18 years old at diagnosis

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients treated by anti-fibrotic - Patients diagnosed with IPF

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, 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.
