Current Primary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: May 28, 2013)
Identify a group of genetic loci that play a role in the development of familial interstitial pneumonia and idiopathic interstitial pneumonia. [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
The purpose of this study is to investigate inherited genetic factors that play a role in the development of pulmonary fibrosis and to identify a group of genetic loci/genes that predispose individuals to develop IIP. We will achieve this goal by employing various methods of genetic technology for gene discovery.

Current Secondary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: May 28, 2013)
Develop biomarkers using proteomic and genomic approaches that will facilitate establishing the diagnosis and prognosis of both familial and sporadic forms of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP). [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
A peripheral blood biomarker or biological signature (gene or protein expression pattern) of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs) will simplify and improve the accuracy of diagnosis of IIP and diagnose individuals at an earlier, more treatable, stage of their disease. A peripheral blood biomarker for the diagnosis of IIPs and other interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) will potentially decrease the need for invasive surgical lung biopsy, and thereby avoid the additional cost, morbidity, and mortality associated with surgical lung biopsy.

Official Title Role of Genetics in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to investigate inherited genetic factors that play a role in the development of familial pulmonary fibrosis and to identify a group of genes that predispose individuals to develop pulmonary fibrosis. Finding the genes that cause pulmonary fibrosis is the first step at developing better methods for early diagnosis and improved treatment for pulmonary fibrosis. The overall hypothesis is that inherited genetic factors predispose individuals to develop pulmonary fibrosis.
Detailed Description Familial Pulmonary Fibrosis (FPF) is a sub-category of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs). IIPs are progressive lung conditions, with limited treatment options and unknown etiology. Though the IIPs have been associated with both genetic risk factors and environmental exposures, the molecular mechanism underlying disease progression remain poorly understood. This investigation seeks to identify a group of genetic loci that play a role in the development of familial interstitial pneumonia (FIP) or FPF, where 2 or more cases of IIP are seen within a family.
