Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 450 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: The Role of the miR200 Family in the Restoration of Normal Lung Homeostasis and Detection of Early IPF
Actual Study Start Date : April 10, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2019

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
No lung diseases
Other: blood samples
Blood samples

non-IPF ILD diagnosis
Other: blood samples
Blood samples

Naive patients with no IPF treatment
Other: blood samples
Blood samples

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine miR200 levels (fold change) in blood samples. [ Time Frame: Baseline (one time). ]
    MicroRNAs (miRs) are noncoding small RNAs, which regulate numerous physiological and pathological processes. miR200 levels will be measured in blood samples collected from control subjects, non-IPF ILD and IPF patients. These samples will be used for identifying biomarkers for IPF.
