Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in FVC (percent of predicted value) at Week 48. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in health-related quality of life at Week 48. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change from baseline in subject-reported dyspnea at Week 48. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Time to progression of IPF, defined as time from Day 1 to any one of the following [ Time Frame: Day 1 to anyone of the following below: ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    1. First respiratory-related hospitalization.
    2. Respiratory-related death.
    3. Absolute decline in FVC percent of predicted value of ≥10%.
    4. Absolute decline in DLCO, adjusted for Hgb, percent of predicted value of ≥15%.

  • Proportion of subjects with at least one respiratory-related hospitalization [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Proportion of subjects with respiratory-related death, censored at Week 52. [ Time Frame: Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Categorical assessment of absolute change from baseline in FVC percent of predicted value at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change from baseline to Week 48 in computer-assisted scores of percent of area of lung parenchymal fibrosis [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Age 40 to 80 years, inclusive.
  2. Clinical diagnosis of IPF by high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scan (and in some cases by surgical lung biopsy) and reduced lung function (forced vital capacity).
  3. History of IPF of 4 years' duration or less.
  4. Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) 55% to 90% of predicted value at screening.
  5. Women of childbearing potential, and men, must be willing to use a medically acceptable method of contraception during the trial and 3 months after the last dose of study drug.
  6. All subjects whose FVC percent predicted value (mean of Week 36 and Week 48 values) shows less than 3% absolute decrease from baseline (mean of Screening Visit 1 and Day 1 values) in the Randomized Treatment Phase will be offered participation in an Extended Treatment Phase.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Women who are pregnant or nursing.
  2. History of any other types of lung or heart disease and any other medical conditions that, in the opinion of the investigator, would preclude the subject's participation in the study.
  3. Clinically important abnormal laboratory tests.
  4. Upper or lower respiratory tract infection of any type within 4 weeks of the first screening visit.
  5. Acute exacerbation of IPF within 3 months of the first screening visit.
  6. Use of certain medications and investigational drugs within 4 weeks of the first screening visit.
  7. History of cancer of any type in the 5 years preceding the first screening visit, excluding non-melanomatous skin cancer, localized bladder cancer, or in situ cervical cancer.
  8. Diffusing capacity (DLCO) less than 30% of predicted value at screening.
  9. History of allergic or anaphylactic reaction to human, humanized, chimeric or murine monoclonal antibodies.
  10. Previous treatment with FG-3019.
  11. Body weight greater than 130 kilograms.
