The PFF Registry is fostering a community of patients, caregivers, and family members all with the same goal: advancing medical research to improve the lives of patients with pulmonary fibrosis.

A diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis affects not only patients but also our family members and loved ones. The PFF Registry is important because pulmonary fibrosis is a new disease compared to other lung diseases that get more attention. I hope researchers and companies will use the Registry to make life easier for all of us.
The PFF Registry Extends into the Community
Physicians currently have no way to predict the course of any individual case of PF, but the PFF Registry is working to change that. By following large numbers of PF patients over time through the PFF Registry, we are already learning more about the best way to care for patients, including managing symptoms, improving quality of life, and more.
The PFF Registry is collecting data from patients, caregivers, and family members nationwide to help researchers find answers on pulmonary fibrosis. The Registry needs voices from all different diagnoses, regions, races, ethnicities, ages and lifestyles
in order to provide the clearest picture of the disease for researchers. The PFF Registry has two distinct data sets:
- The PFF Care Center Registry collects medical data from thousands of patients and is administered by PFF Care Centers across the country. Data from participants' usual medical care is uploaded into the Registry by a Care Center data coordinator.
- The PFF Community Registry gathers data directly from participants via an easy-to-use online portal. Surveys can be completed at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home.
Participation in the PFF Registry is voluntary. Although we hope you will enjoy the sense of community and contributions you are making, you can stop participating at any time.
The PFF Registry database is highly secure, using the same technology trusted by doctor’s offices, hospitals and clinical trials worldwide. How much information you want to share with researchers is up to you. You can decide whether or not to allow researchers to contact you for additional studies such as clinical trials.
Finally, as a part of the PFF Registry, you will receive newsletters so you can see how your information is helping shape the future of PF research.
Your gift to
the PFF Patient Registry will enable us to expand patient enrollment and
provide even greater access to investigators as they search for a cure
