Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
We aimed to enroll 20 CBD subjects on stable doses of corticosteroids and/or methotrexate, with no evidence of active or chronic infection, malignancy, other chronic disease, or past treatment with another biologic with a 3:1 infliximab:placebo ratio

Pre-Assignment Details

the sponsor stopped the study due to slow recruitment

Reporting Groups
Group 1 - Infliximab This group was given an infusion of inliximab
Group 2 - Placebo This group was given a placebo infusion

  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   A-a Gradient at End Exercise   [ Time Frame: after 28 week follow-up. The Alveolar-arterial gradient (A-a gradient), is a measure of the difference between the alveolar partial pressure (A) of oxygen and the arterial (a) partial pressure of oxygen ]

2.  Post-Hoc:   Absolute Numbers of Lymphocytes   [ Time Frame: after 28 week follow-up ]

3.  Post-Hoc:   BAL WBC/cc   [ Time Frame: after 28 weeks ]

4.  Post-Hoc:   BAL % Lymphocytes   [ Time Frame: after 28 week infusion ]

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Although our goal was 20 CBD subjects, only 11 subjects were enrolled, 8:3 in the infliximab:placebo treatment arms as the study was stopped by the sponsor due to slow recruitment.
