Brief Summary:

This study plans to learn more about pulmonary fibrosis and how it develops. We want to determine if the disease can be detected early, before the lung is permanently scarred.

This study will enroll participants who are not currently diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, but who have family members with pulmonary fibrosis. Because there is an increased risk within affected families, this cohort will allow us to learn how pulmonary fibrosis develops, and how the lungs change over time.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Full Cohort
Entire study population
Other: Sample collection
Blood, Urine, Nail, Hair, Saliva, optional Stool

Other: Questionnaires
SF-36, Food Frequency, Pulmonary Fibrosis Study questionnaire, COVID questionnaire

Radiation: High resolution CT scan of the chest
Upon enrollment, all patients will undergo single prone volumetric thoracic chest CT scan. This will be performed at full inspiration using a 64-slice CT scanner.

Diagnostic Test: Pulmonary Function Test
All recruited subjects will undergo a pre-bronchodilator spirometry test and a lung diffusion capacity test, both in accordance with ATS guidelines. Exercise capacity (maximum physical exertion) will be assessed by performing a 6-minute walk test, also according to ATS guidelines.

Sub-Cohort
Randomly selected sub-cohort from the larger group of all participants
Other: Sample collection
Blood, Urine, Nail, Hair, Saliva, optional Stool

Other: Questionnaires
SF-36, Food Frequency, Pulmonary Fibrosis Study questionnaire, COVID questionnaire

Radiation: High resolution CT scan of the chest
Upon enrollment, all patients will undergo single prone volumetric thoracic chest CT scan. This will be performed at full inspiration using a 64-slice CT scanner.

Diagnostic Test: Pulmonary Function Test
All recruited subjects will undergo a pre-bronchodilator spirometry test and a lung diffusion capacity test, both in accordance with ATS guidelines. Exercise capacity (maximum physical exertion) will be assessed by performing a 6-minute walk test, also according to ATS guidelines.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Screen all subjects for early Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) with High Resolution CT Scan of the Chest [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    All subjects will be screened with a high resolution CT scan to identify early signs of lung fibrosis. CT scans will be evaluated by study radiologists.
