FIBRONEER-ILD Study To Improve Lung Function

Search Clinical Trials

Trial Objectives


Continuous scarring (fibrosis) can gradually impair lung function, leading to breathing difficulties. Researchers are examining whether an investigational medication called BI 1015550 can help adults aged 18 and older with progressive lung diseases with fibrosis.

Participants in this study will be given BI 1015550 or a placebo (a tablet without any medication). All participants receive lung function tests, and the test results for both groups will be compared. Researchers will review the data to see if BI 1015550 improves lung function and may be another important tool in the fight against lung disease.

Adults 18 and older with progressive interstitial lung disease with fibrosis.  

Age: 18+ Gender Any
