Explore an Innovative IPF Trial

Promising research suggests improved clinical outcomes in IPF patients treated with antibiotics.

The CleanUP IPF Trial – the largest National Institutes of Health (NIH) sponsored trial in IPF – is investigating antibiotics in 500 patient participants and is now fully enrolled. Once it’s completed, researchers will utilize new technologies and platforms to analyze the collected data and biological samples.

“We have an opportunity to lead the investigative community in a new format for study design while providing patients a cost effective, simple and well tolerated therapeutic approach that may not only improve outcomes but also quality of life.”

– Dr. Fernando Martinez, MD, one of the lead investigators for CleanUP IPF

“If micro-organisms are triggering and/or sustaining the disease and we are able to figure this out, then a cure should be in sight.”
