Primary Completion Date: July 28, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Study Drug (FG-3019)

Study Drug, FG-3019, 30 mg/kg; 10 mg/ml, single dose vials, by intravenous infusion every 3 weeks for a total of 16 infusions over 45 weeks

For the substudy, the dose will be the same but for a total of 8 infusions over 21 weeks

Drug: FG-3019

Study Drug, FG-3019, 10 mg/ml, single dose vials, by intravenous infusion every 3 weeks for a total of 16 infusions over 45 weeks

For the substudy, the dose will be the same but for a total of 8 infusions over 21 weeks

Other Name: Fully human recombinant IgG, kappa monoclonal anti-body.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo

Sterile, clear aqueous solution, 10 mg/ml, single dose vials, by intravenous infusion every 3 weeks for a total of 16 infusions over 45 weeks

For the substudy, the dose will be the same but for a total of 8 infusions over 21 weeks

Drug: Placebo

Sterile, clear aqueous solution, 10 mg/ml, single dose vials, by intravenous infusion every 3 weeks for a total of 16 infusions over 45 weeks

For the substudy, the dose will be the same but for a total of 8 infusions over 21 weeks


Detailed Description:

The study has been amended accordingly in February 2016 to further allow for the enrollment of a subgroup of subjects (N=60) who will be allowed to receive treatment with approved IPF therapy with pirfenidone or with nintedanib as background therapy.

These additional subjects will be stratified by background therapy, randomized to FG-3019 or placebo and followed up for 24 weeks. The main objective of the study remains safety. PK samples to assess drug concentrations will also be collected.

(This substudy portion only applies to US and Canadian centers.)

Enrollment for the main study was completed on 29Jun2016 Enrollment for the sub-study was completed on 16Dec2016

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Age 40 to 80 years, inclusive.
  2. Diagnosis of IPF as defined by current international guidelines (Raghu, 2011). Each subject must have one of the following: (1) Usual Interstitial Pneumonia (UIP) Pattern on an available HRCT scan; or (2) Possible UIP Pattern on an available HRCT scan and surgical lung biopsy within 4 years of Screening showing UIP Pattern.
  3. History of IPF of ≤5 years duration with onset defined as the date of the first diagnosis of IPF by HRCT or surgical lung biopsy.
  4. Interstitial pulmonary fibrosis defined by HRCT scan at Screening, with evidence of ≥10% to <50% parenchymal fibrosis (reticulation) and <25% honeycombing, within the whole lung, as determined by the HRCT central reader.
  5. FVC percent of predicted value ≥55% at Screening.
  6. Female subjects of childbearing potential (including those <1 year postmenopausal) must be willing to use a medically acceptable method of contraception, for example, an oral contraceptive, depot progesterone, or intrauterine device. Male subjects with female partners of childbearing potential who are not using birth control as described above must use a barrier method of contraception (e.g., condom) if not surgically sterile (i.e., vasectomy).
  7. All subjects in Arm A whose FVC percent predicted value is greater than the original pre-treatment baseline in the Randomized Treatment Period will be offered participation in an Extended Treatment Period
  8. All subjects assigned to Placebo (Arm B) will be offered participation in the Extended Treatment Phase.
  9. For Substudy only: Receiving treatment for IPF with a stable dose of pirfenidone or with a stable dose of nintedanib for at least 3 months before screening initiation and willing to continue treatment with pirfenidone or with nintedanib according to the corresponding approved label and the prescribing physician, including all listed safety requirements (e.g., liver function tests, avoidance of sunlight and sunlamp exposure and wearing of sunscreen and protective clothing daily for pirfenidone, and smoking cessation).

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Women who are pregnant or nursing.
  2. Infiltrative lung disease other than IPF, including any of the other types of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (Travis, 2013); lung diseases related to exposure to fibrogenic agents or other environmental toxins or drugs; other types of occupational lung diseases; granulomatous lung diseases; pulmonary vascular diseases; systemic diseases, including vasculitis and connective tissue diseases.
  3. HRCT scan findings at Screening are inconsistent with UIP Pattern, as determined by the HRCT central reader.
  4. Pathology diagnosis on surgical lung biopsy is anything other than UIP Pattern, as determined by the local pathologist.
  5. The Investigator judges that there has been sustained improvement in the severity of IPF during the 12 months prior to Screening, based on changes in FVC, diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO), and/or HRCT scans of the chest.
  6. Clinically important abnormal laboratory tests.
  7. Upper or lower respiratory tract infection of any type within 4 weeks of the first screening visit.
  8. Acute exacerbation of IPF within 3 months of the first screening visit.
  9. Use of medications to treat IPF within 5 half-lives of Day 1 dosing. If monoclonal antibodies were used, the last dose of the antibody must be at least 4 weeks before Day 1 dosing. This applies to subject enrolled in Main Study only.
  10. Use of any investigational drugs, including any investigational drugs for IPF, within 4 weeks prior to Day 1 dosing.
  11. History of cancer diagnosis of any type in the 3 years preceding Screening, excluding non-melanomatous skin cancer, localized bladder cancer, or in situ cancers
  12. Diffusing capacity (DLCO) less than 30% of predicted value
  13. History of allergic or anaphylactic reaction to human, humanized, chimeric or murine monoclonal antibodies.
  14. Previous treatment with FG-3019.
  15. Body weight greater than 130 kilograms.
