A Subject-, Investigator-, and Sponsor-blinded, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter Study to Investigate Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of VAY736 in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
All compounds are either investigational or being studied for (a) new use(s). Efficacy and safety have not been established. There is no guarantee that they will become commercially available for the use(s) under investigation.
This study will investigate the safety and efficacy of VAY736 administered subcutaneously (s.c.) every 4 weeks for 48 weeks. Approximately, 84 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio on top of local standard of care (SOC), to receive VAY736 or placebo.
