1.Primary Outcome
Title Annual Rate of Decline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) Over 52 Weeks

Statistical Analysis Overview Comparison Group Selection Placebo, Nintedanib 150mg Bid
Comments

Random coefficient regression with fixed effects for treatment, gender, age, height and random effect of patient specific intercept and time.

A hierarchical procedure was used in order to demonstrate the superiority of nintedanib over placebo for one primary and two key secondary endpoints.

The consecutive steps of the hierarchy were only considered if the previous step was significant at the one-sided 2.5% level and the results were in favour of nintedanib.

2.Secondary Outcome
Title Change From Baseline in Saint-George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) Total Score at 52 Weeks
Hide Description

This is a key secondary endpoint.

SGRQ is a health-related quality of life questionnaire divided into 3 components : symptoms, activity and impact.

The total score (summed weights) can range from 0 to 100 with a lower score denoting a better health status.

Means provided are the adjusted means based on all analyzed patients in the model (not only patients with a baseline and measurement at week 52).

3.Secondary Outcome
Title Time to First Acute Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Exacerbation
Hide Description

Due to rare events, the median of time to event is not calculable, thus the percentages of patients with (IPF) exacerbation are reported and represented as a key secondary endpoint. An acute exacerbation (reported as an AE by the investigator) was defined as follows:

Otherwise unexplained clinical features including all of the following:

  • Unexplained worsening or development of dyspnoea within 30 days
  • New diffuse pulmonary infiltrates on chest X-ray, and/or new HRCT parenchymal abnormalities with no pneumothorax or pleural effusion (new ground-glass opacities) since the last visit
  • Exclusion of infection as per routine clinical practice and microbiological studies
  • Exclusion of alternative causes as per routine clinical practice including left heart failure, pulmonary embolism and identifiable cause of acute lung injury.

Failure is the proportion of patients with at least one acute IPF exacerbation over 52 weeks, based on all investigator-reported AEs .

Title Change From Baseline in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Specific Version of SGRQ (SGRQ-I) Total Score at 52 Weeks (Points): Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs)
Hide Description

SGRQ-I is the IPF specific version of SGRQ comprises of selected items from the SGRQ divided into three components, Symptoms, Activity and Impact. Each component is scored separately. The weights for all items with a positive responses are summed and the weights from missed items are deducted from the maximum possible weight for the total score.

The total score is calculated by dividing the summed weights from positive items in the questionnaire by maximum possible weight for all items in the questionnaire. The total score can range from 0 to 100 with a lower score denoting a better health-related quality of life. Change from baseline is calculated as the difference between total score at week 52 and total score at baseline as measured by the scale.

Hide Description

Shortness of Breath Questionnaire measures the shortness of breath. It comprises of 24 items. Each item is scored on a scale between 0-5 where 5 represents maximal breathlessness. The responses to all items are summed up to provide the overall score that can range from 0 (best outcome) to 120 (worst outcome).

Means presented are the adjusted means and are based on all analyzed patients in the model (not only patients with a baseline and measurement at week 52).
