The PFF Registry is a crucial research tool in the fight against PF. Data gathered from thousands of participants in the Registry are being used by researchers to discover the causes of PF, improve treatments, and help lead us toward answers about PF and ILD.
As a young researcher, I deeply appreciate the participation of patients and their families. We are trying to understand and explore outcomes that are meaningful to patients, and we can only make progress with patient participation, so we're very grateful.

PRECISIONS is a multicenter study that will evaluate biomarkers to aid in the diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis. Studies such as PRECISIONS would be impractical without the Registry’s expert clinical and investigative groups, public and private sector funding, and a large number of patients with diverse PF disorders.

Utilizing the PFF Registry for Research
The PFF Registry serves as a resource to stimulate research and assist in clinical trial recruitment. Deidentified clinical data, biosamples, and HRCT scans from the PFF Patient Registry is available for use by clinical and translational investigators in academia and industry.
Researchers can partner with a PFF Care Center Network Registry principal investigator to submit a proposal for an ancillary study. Proposals are evaluated on scientific validity, feasibility, and other criteria. Once approved, the PFF Registry team will notify the proposal author and then the data coordinating center will contact the author to determine the statistical analysis plan and release data and specimens for the study.
For questions about submitting a research proposal, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For companies interested in utilizing the PFF Registry for research purposes, contact email@example.com to learn more about the application process and fees.
