Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common type of pulmonary fibrosis. It is a disease that causes scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs. The word “idiopathic” means it has no known cause. Scarring causes stiffness in the lungs and makes it difficult to breathe. Lung damage from IPF is irreversible and progressive. 

Calliditas is conducting a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and expecting full data readout in 2H 2024. 

Potential for late-stage trial in IPF based on Ph2 signal.

Full data readout expected in 2H 2024.
