The PFF Registry is a nationwide research study that enables researchers, for the first time, to explore what treatment strategies work best for patients and to find new ways to prevent, diagnose, treat, and potentially cure pulmonary fibrosis.

The PFF Registry is an unparalleled research tool that tracks clinical data, blood samples, images, and patient-reported outcomes from patients with pulmonary fibrosis nationwide.


What is a registry?

A clinical data registry records, analyzes, and reports information about a patient’s health status and care received over time in order to improve health outcomes. Unlike a clinical trial where subjects must follow a specific treatment protocol, a registry captures data from a patient’s usual health care and experience via a secure online portal.

What is the PFF Registry?

Since 2016, the PFF Patient Registry has enrolled and followed the care of thousands of patients within the PFF Care Centers. Now, the PFF Registry has expanded to capture more participants in various care settings and regions across the United States. The PFF Patient Registry will maintain enrollment of over 2000 patients. The new PFF Community Registry will provide insight into the experience of all patients living with pulmonary fibrosis or interstitial lung disease, including those who have had a lung transplant, as well as caregivers and family members. We invite you to join and help advance research on these devastating diseases.

It’s about community and helping you.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are living with pulmonary fibrosis. The PFF Registry invites patients, PF patients who have received a lung transplant, caregivers, and family members to participate in the Registry. As more people contribute data, a clearer picture of PF will emerge to help lead us toward answers. Learn more.
