Pamrevlumab in Participants With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of of 30 milligrams (mg)/kilogram (kg) intravenous (IV) infusions of pamrevlumab administered every 3 weeks as compared to placebo in participants with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). There is a 48-week randomized treatment phase followed by an optional, open-label extension phase.

  • Study Sponsor: FibroGen

  • Start Date: September 2020

  • Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2023

  • Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled efficacy and safety study of pamrevlumab in subjects with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)

Primary Outcome Measure:

  • Change From Baseline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) at Week 48 [Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48]

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of IPF as defined by American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society/Japanese Respiratory Society/Latin American Thoracic Association (ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT) guidelines within the past 7 years prior to study participation.
  • High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scan at Screening, with ≥10% to <50% parenchymal fibrosis (reticulation) and <25% honeycombing.
  • FVCpp value >45% and <95% at Screening and Day 1 (prior to randomization).
  • Diffusing capacity of the lungs for carbon monoxide (DLCO) percent predicted ≥25% and ≤90%.
  • Not currently receiving treatment for IPF with an approved therapy for IPF (such as, pirfenidone or nintedanib) for any reason, including prior intolerance or lack of response to an approved IPF therapy, or choice to forego treatment with an approved IPF therapy after a full discussion with the Investigator regarding risks/benefits of such therapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous exposure to pamrevlumab.
  • Evidence of significant obstructive lung disease, as evidenced by spirometry or HRCT.
  • Female participants who are pregnant or nursing.
  • Smoking within 3 months of Screening and/or unwilling to avoid smoking throughout the study.
  • Interstitial lung disease other than IPF.
  • Sustained improvement in the severity of IPF during the 12 months prior to screening.
  • Other types of respiratory diseases that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would impact the primary protocol endpoint or otherwise preclude participation in the study, including diseases of the airways, lung parenchyma, pleural space, mediastinum, diaphragm, or chest wall.
  • Certain medical conditions, that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would impact the primary protocol endpoint or otherwise preclude participation in the study (such as, myocardial infarction/stroke, severe chronic heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, or cancers).
  • Acute IPF exacerbation during Screening or Randomization including hospitalization due to acute IPF exacerbation within 4 weeks prior to or during screening.
  • Use of any investigational drugs or unapproved therapies, or participation in any clinical trial with an investigational new drug within 30 days prior to screening. Or use of approved IPF therapies (such as, pirfenidone or nintedanib) within 1 week prior to screening.
  • History of allergic or anaphylactic reaction to human, humanized, chimeric or murine monoclonal antibodies, or to any component of the excipient.
