Brief Summary:
Identifying biomarkers to predict the clinical course and benefits of therapy early in the course of the disease remains one of the most urgent and relevant challenges to improve overall patient management, to prevent treatment delay or overtreatment. This study is conducted to examine the effect of nintedanib treatment on change in biomarkers indicative of extracellular matrix turnover which have been shown recently to correlate with disease progression. This study further aims to confirm the association of biomarker course during the first three months of treatment and disease progression.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Rate of Change (Slope) in Blood C-reactive Protein Degraded by Matrix Metalloproteinase-1/8 (CRPM) From Baseline to Week 12. [ Time Frame: baseline and 12 weeks ]
    The rate of change (slope) in blood C-reactive protein degraded by matrix metalloproteinase-1/8 (CRPM) from baseline to week 12 is presented. The mean presented is the adjusted rate based on a random coefficient regression (CRPM log 10 transformed) with fixed effects for gender, age, height and random effect of patient specific intercept and time.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Patients With Disease Progression as Defined by Absolute Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) Decline >=10% or Death Until Week 52 [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]

    For this endpoint, disease progression was defined by absolute FVC (percentage of predicted) decline ≥10% or death up to Week 52 based on in-clinic supervised spirometry.

    This is a key secondary endpoint of the trial. This outcome measure is "percentage of patients with disease progression" and CRPM is included in the various models as a factor/covariate, and that this outcome measure, the percentage of progressors are displayed under "Measured values"


  2. The Rate of Change in Blood Collagen 1 Degraded by Matrix Metalloproteinase-2/9/13 (C1M) From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: baseline and 12 weeks ]

    The rate of change in blood Collagen 1 degraded by matrix metalloproteinase-2/9/13 (C1M) from baseline to week 12 is presented.

    The mean presented is the adjusted rate based on a random coefficient regression (C1M (negative reciprocal root transformation)) with fixed effects for gender, age, height and random effect of patient specific intercept and time.


  3. The Rate of Change in Blood Collagen 3 Degraded by Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 (C3M) From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: baseline and 12 weeks ]

    The rate of change in blood Collagen 3 degraded by matrix metalloproteinase-9 (C3M) from baseline to week 12 is presented.

    The mean presented is the adjusted rate based on a random coefficient regression (C3M- log 10 transformation) with fixed effects for gender, age, height and random effect of patient specific intercept and time.
