For Clinicians

PACT COVID-19 Update

Many pulmonary fibrosis trials have been suspended whilst respiratory health professionals were called to the frontline of the COVID-19 response. We thank all those who have and continue to work on the frontline.

PACT is pleased to update that due to the improved clinical situation of COVID-19 in Australasia some trials are beginning to recommence. Recruiting trials listed below remain ongoing and some sites are starting to accept new trial enrolments. For everyone’s safety, extraordinary measures continue to be in place for patients in trails.

Please continue to check our website for trial updates, we hope to be able to reopen trial enquiries soon. Alternatively, become a member to stay up to date.

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.
