Brief Summary:
EVITA is a multicentric Latin-American prospective study on hypersensitivity pneumonitis. EVITA's objective is to identify phenotypes and/or endotypes associated with different disease trajectories measured primarily by forced vital capacity (FVC) during a 24 month follow-up period. Other secondary measures of disease progression will also be investigated such as imaging, time to death or lung transplantation, and patient-reported outcomes

Other: Disease assessment

A comprehensive evaluation of the disease's extension, its impact on function, quality of life, and the search for phenotype/endotypes will be performed.

The association between endotypes and disease progression will be tested.

Other Names:
  • Pulmonary function test (PFT)
  • High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) of the Chest
  • 6-minute walking distance (6MWD)
  • blood for genomics, functional genomics and protein biomarker analysis
  • urine collection for protein biomarker analysis
  • Bronchoalveolar fluid collection (in a subset of the sample)
  • K-BILD questionnaire

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    as a continuous variable

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Lung Densitometry [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Computed Tomography imaging progression

  2. Time to death or lung transplantation [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  3. Acute exacerbation rate [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  4. King´s Brief Interstitial Lung Disease Questionnaire (K-BILD) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Health-related quality of Life

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Tests for interaction: [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    1. Ag exposure remediation vs non-remediation; Treated vs non-treated HP (antifibrotics); 2. Stratification per sex; 3. Primary outcome dichotomized at loss of FVC >= 10% predicted vs. < 10% , and 4. FVC loss >= 5% vs < 5%.
