Purpose

The overall objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of FG-3019 in subjects with IPF, and the efficacy of FG-3019 for attenuating fibrosis in these subjects.

Inclusion Criteria

Factors that allow someone to participate in a clinical trial.

  • Evidence of progression of IPF within the last 3-12 months for Cohort 1, or within the last 18 months for Cohort 2 before screening.
  • Women of childbearing potential, and men, must be willing to use a medically acceptable method of contraception during the trial and 3 months after the last dose of study drug.

Exclusion Criteria

Factors that do not allow someone to participate in a clinical trial.

  • Women who are pregnant or nursing.
