Brief Summary:
This study will investigate the safety and efficacy of VAY736 administered subcutaneously (s.c.) every 4 weeks for 48 weeks. Approximately, 84 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio on top of local standard of care (SOC), to receive VAY736 or placebo.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline to end of treatment epoch (48 weeks of treatment) in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC). [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    To assess the efficacy of VAY736 in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis Change from baseline to end of treatment epoch (48 weeks of treatment) in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. All-Cause mortality [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    To assess the impact of VAY736 on survival: All-cause mortality

  2. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]

    Progression free survival analysis as defined will be produced at the end of the treatment epoch (week 48) for the following event of interest:

    1. Events, defined as: death (all-cause mortality) OR "progression" (relative reduction in FVC ≥ 10%)
    2. Events, defined as: death (IPF-related mortality) OR "progression" (relative reduction in FVC ≥ 10%)

  3. Disease progression [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Disease Progression, defined as: a)relative reduction in FVC ≥ 10% b) relative reduction in Diffusing Capacity of the Lungs (DLCO) ≥ 15% c) absolute reduction in Six Minute Walk Distance (6MWD) ≥ 50 m

  4. Composite Endpoint [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]

    Composite Endpoint defined as:

    1. death (all-cause mortality), OR relative reduction in FVC≥10%, OR relative reduction in DLCO ≥15%, OR relative reduction in 6MWD ≥50m
    2. death (IPF-related morality), OR relative reduction in FVC≥10%, OR relative reduction in DLCO ≥15%, OR relative reduction in 6MWD ≥50m

  5. Change from baseline to end of treatment epoch (Week 48) in Diffusing Capacity of the Lungs (DLCO) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    To assess the impact of VAY736 on Pulmonary Physiology: Change from baseline to theend of treatment epoch (week 48) in DLCO

  6. Change from baseline to the end of treatment epoch (Week 48) in 6-minute walk test and in distance-saturation product [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    Change from baseline to the end of treatment epoch (Week 48) in 6-minute walk test and in distance-saturation product to assess the impact of VAY736 on exercise capacity

  7. Change from baseline to the end of treatment epoch (Week 48) in resting oxygen saturation (on room air) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    Change from baseline to the end of treatment epoch (Week 48) in resting oxygen saturation (on room air) to assess the impact of VAY736 on gas exchange

  8. Immunogenicity of VAY736 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    To assess the immunogenicity of VAY736 by measuring Serum anti-VAY736 antibodies

  9. To assess the pharmacokinetics Cmin,ss of VAY736 after multiple s.c. doses [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Week 69 ]
    Determine the Cmin,ss from the serum concentration (VAY736)-time data

  10. Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) -related Mortality [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    To assess the impact of VAY736 on survival: IPF-related mortality
