Design / Schedule
JIPS Registry is a multi-site, non-interventional, prospective observation study.
Newly diagnosed IIPs within 6 months before registration.
Target case number
600-800 patients will be registered for 16 months at approximately 70-80 facilities in Japan.
JIPS Registry is an observational study, and no formal sample size was calculated. Descriptive statistical methods will be mainly chosen to analyze the results.
The sample size of INSIGHT-IPF was at least 500 patients and IPF-PRO was 300 patients. Therefore, at least 200 IPF patients who fulfill the diagnostic criteria for IPF will be enrolled in the JIPS registry as it is an adequate number to obtain meaningful outcomes and allows for comparison with other cohorts. Based on the historical volume of two hospitals, in the Tosei General Hospital and Kanagawa Cardiovascular Respiratory Center, which have at least 100 IIPs patients per year, IPF patients comprise approximately 30-40% of IIPs at each facility, providing an expected IPF population of at least 200 patients.
Registration period：December 2016-March 2018
Tracking period：3 years from the end of the last registration (The maximum observation period will be 52 months.)
Patients need to meet all the following inclusion criteria:
- Patients aged between 20 and 84 years
- Patients with IPF and other IIPs diagnosis within 6 months before registration at each facility
- Patients from whom written informed consent has been obtained regarding participation in this study and follow-up observation
Patients with any of the following criteria are excluded from this study:
- Patients for whom the tests (such as the lung function test) conducted in this study could not be performed
- Patients who underwent pulmonary resection
- Patients undergoing dialysis
- Patients with uncured cancer
This research will consist of a baseline and a follow-up visit at approximately 6-month intervals (6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48 months) throughout the observational period.
