The PFF Patient Registry, established in 2016, collects medical data from more than 2,000 patients and is administered at participating PFF Care Centers across the United States.

Information from the PFF Patient Registry already has been used  in over 40 studies representing more than $32 million in disease research.

What is the PFF Patient Registry?

Since 2016, the PFF Patient Registry has enrolled and followed the care of thousands of patients at participating PFF Care Centers. Information in the PFF Patient Registry includes: patient demographics such as age and gender, details on how the diagnosis was made, test results, medications, medical events, a blood sample with consent at the time of enrollment, high resolution CT (HRCT) scans, and patient-reported outcomes.

Data from the PFF Patient Registry have been used in over 40 research studies representing over $32 million in research savings.

Can I enroll in the PFF Patient Registry?

No, enrollment for the PFF Patient Registry is closed at this time. During the past five years, the 2,000 participants in the PFF Patient Registry made tremendous amounts of data available to researchers, and now, a clearer picture of PF is emerging. The PFF Patient Registry is expected to re-open in 2023. In the meantime, you can enroll in the PFF Community Registry.
