Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events, deaths, clinical lab tests, directed physical exams, including vital signs [ Time Frame: Assessments are at 6 month intervals up to approximately 8 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: August 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Pirfenidone
up to 3600 mg/day of pirfenidone given orally, with a target dose of 2403 mg/day, administered in divided doses three times daily with food, for the duration of the study
Drug: Pirfenidone
up to 3600 mg/day of pirfenidone given orally, with a target dose of 2403 mg/day, administered in divided doses three times daily with food, for the duration of the study

Detailed Description:

This study has been designed as a rollover study to collectively include safety data from various previous studies.

In addition, InterMune has also initiated an Early Access Program to make pirfenidone available to a limited number of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in the United States. This program is also being conducted under this protocol. Registration of patients with documented IPF has been closed as of October 2005.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 85 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

General Inclusion Criteria:

  • Able to understand and sign an informed consent form
  • Understand the importance of adherence to study treatment and the study protocol, including concomitant medication restrictions, throughout the study period
  • Patients must be willing to travel to an approved regional center for all study-related visits

Roll-Over Criteria:

  • Entry into study through rollover has been completed

Criteria for Early Access Program patients:

  • Clinical symptoms consistent with IPF ≥3 months duration
  • Age 40 - 85, inclusive
  • At the time of registration with NORD, patients with IPF must have a percent predicted FVC of ≥50%, and percent predicted DLCO of ≥35%
  • At the time of enrollment in PIPF-002, (screening/baseline visit) percent predicted FVC must be ≥45%, and percent predicted DLCO must be ≥30%
  • High-resolution computed tomographic scan (HRCT) showing definite IPF. For patients with surgical lung biopsy showing definite or probable usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP), the HRCT criterion of probable IPF is sufficient
  • For patients aged <50 years: open or video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lung biopsy showing definite or probable UIP. In addition, no features supporting an alternative diagnosis on transbronchial biopsy or bronchoalveolar lavage if performed
  • For patients aged ≥50 years: at least one of the following diagnostic findings as well as the absence of any features on specimens resulting from any of these procedures that support an alternative diagnosis: 1) Open or VATS lung biopsy showing definite or probable UIP; 2) Transbronchial biopsy showing no features to support an alternative diagnosis; 3) Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) showing no features to support an alternative diagnosis
