As with everything in 2020, pulmonary fibrosis clinical trials and PACT activities have been majorly impacted by COVID-19. Trial investigators and sites are doing all they can to negotiate the changing conditions and keep recruiting trial participants. Please continue to check our website for trial updates, we hope to be able to reopen trial enquiries soon. 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.
