For Clinicians

PACT Update

As with everything during the global COVID-19 pandemic, pulmonary fibrosis clinical trials and PACT activities were majorly impacted. Thank you for your patience with any delays you may encounter when enquiring about a trial.

Thank you to all involved in the (ongoing) clinical response to COVID-19. To stay up to date with PACT,

PACT partnership with HealthMatch to help patients access clinical trials

Finding and accessing clinical trials can be difficult for Pulmonary Fibrosis patients. PACT has partnered with HealthMatch to make this process easier and more efficient. Use the link below to find out more about matching for current and future Pulmonary Fibrosis clinical trials and create a profile.

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.
