New Study Published in New England Journal of Medicine Shows Investigational BIBF 1120 Demonstrated Positive Trend in Reducing Lung Function Loss in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Date:9/21/2011

uent in patients receiving 150 mg of BIBF 1120 twice daily than placebo and adverse events leading to discontinuation were mostly diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.

"People who suffer from IPF are in great need of a safe and effective treatment to preserve lung function so they can maintain physical activity and reduce the impact on their independence for as long as possible," said Luca Richeldi, MD, PhD, lead study author and director of the Research Centre for Rare Lung Diseases, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy. "The positive trends in slowing the decline in lung function over time, reducing the incidence of acute exacerbations and improving the quality of life with BIBF 1120 are a promising proof of concept."

BIBF 1120 received orphan-drug designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June 2011. Two pivotal phase III clinical trials are currently underway enrolling a total of 970 patients in 20 countries. The first patients entered the trials in April and May 2011, respectively. For more information about the phase III trials or to learn how to enroll, please visit clinicaltrials.gov (identifiers NCT01335464 and NCT01335477).

"The results of the phase II clinical trial for BIBF 1120 in IPF give us the confidence to continue assessing the compound's potential in phase III clinical trials," said Christopher Corsico, MD, MPH, senior vice president, Medicine and Regulatory, North America, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "Boehringer Ingelheim remains committed to identifying an effective treatment for IPF to help bridge the unmet therapeutic need for the thousands of people suffering from this fatal disease."
