As with everything since early 2020, pulmonary fibrosis clinical trials and PACT activities have been majorly impacted by the global pandemic. We are continuing to operate as normally as possible during this challenging time. Thank you to all involved in the ongoing clinical response to COVID-19. We are excited to continue supporting important pulmonary fibrosis trials in Australasia. To stay up to date, become a member.Become a member
Over the past decade high quality trials have transformed treatment approaches for patients with PF both by ensuring patients are not exposed to potentially harmful treatments and by supporting access to treatments with proven efficacy. Find out more in the Treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in Australia and New Zealand: A position statement from the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand and the Lung Foundation Australia, here.
Enrollment in clinical trails is now considered standard of care for patients with pulmonary fibrosis, much as it is for patients with cancer. Clinicians – be they PF ‘experts’ or not – have a vital role to play in encouraging enrollment in high quality clinical trials, especially since PF is an uncommon disease impeding recruitment to very large trials. Below are links to Pulmonary Fibrosis trials currently recruiting in Australasia.

The SCENIC study was terminated due to the impact of COVID-19. The study was being conducted across 11 countries and while the impact was minimal in Australasia this was not the case in the other regions.
|Isabela 1&2||A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel-group, Placebo-controlled, Multi-center Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Two Doses of GLPG1690 in Addition to Local Standard of Care for Minimum 52 Weeks in Subjects With ldiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis||Discontinued
The decision to discontinue the ISABELA Phase 3 clinical studies was based on the recommendations of the Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) which, following a regular review of unblinded data, concluded that ziritaxestat’s benefit-risk profile no longer supported continuing these studies. Detailed data of the ISABELA studies will be presented at future medical meetings.
