Brief Summary:
This multicenter, post-marketing, observational study will evaluate quality of life in participants with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) under treatment with pirfenidone (Esbriet).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Drug: Pirfenidone

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 102 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Multicenter, Post-Marketing, Non-Interventional, Observational Study to Evaluate Quality of Life in Patients in Greece With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Under Treatment With Pirfenidone - The Pneumon Study
Actual Study Start Date : April 18, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : May 30, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : May 30, 2020

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Participants With IPF
Observational data of participants with IPF under treatment with pirfenidone will be collected from the medical records as a part of their routine clinical visits at 12-week interval until study completion or early withdrawal (up to Week 52).
Drug: Pirfenidone
Participants will receive pirfenidone therapy as per clinical practice or summary of product characteristics (SmPC).
Other Name: Esbriet

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Quality of Life of Participants as Assessed by Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGQR) Score at the End of Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Dyspnoea as Assessed by Medical Research Council (MRC) Breathlessness Scale Level at the End of Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
  2. Change From Baseline in Percent (%) Predicted Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) at the End of Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
  3. Change From Baseline in Annual FVC [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
  4. Change From Baseline in % Predicted Diffusing Lung Capacity for Carbon Monoxide (DLCO) at the End of Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
  5. Percentage of participants With Acute IPF Exacerbations, IPF-Related Death, Lung Transplant, or Respiratory-Related Hospitalization [ Time Frame: from Baseline up to end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
  6. Percentage of Participants who are Compliant to Treatment [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
    Treatment compliance will be assessed by the total number of dose reductions, dose interruptions, and the administered dosing intensity relative to the projected dose intensity during treatment.

  7. Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), and AEs of Special Interests [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to end of treatment (up to Week 52) ]
