Registry for Exploring Clinical and Epidemiological Characteristics of Interstitial Lung Diseases - EXCITING


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female
  • Other:
    Signed informed consent
    Able to read and understand the scope and nature of data collection
    Aged ≥ 18 at time of informed consent
    Patients diagnosed with interstitial lung disease (ILD). Patients with suspicion on
    interstitial lung disease cannot be included into the registry, only after consens
    diagnosis of an ILD. This is also the case for patients with not classifiable ILDs.
    Subjects with the following subtypes of ILD will be enrolled:
    Idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIPs)
    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
    Non-specific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP)
    Desquamative interstitial pneumonia (DIP)
    Respiratory bronchiolitis-associated interstitial lung disease (RB-ILD)
    Cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP)
    Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP)
    Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP)
    Rare forms of IIPs (e.g. pleuropulmonary fibroelastosis)
    Not classifiable IIP
    Granulomatous lung disease
    Sarcoidosis
    Berylliosis
    Other (e.g. involvement in chronic inflammatory liver and gut diseases, except
    EAA)
    Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (exogen allergic alveolitis (EAA))
    Farmer's lung
    Bird keepers' lung disease
    Origin unknown
    Other
    Rheumatic and connective tissue diseases with pulmonary involvement like:
    Connective tissue disease (subtype)
    Vasculitis
    Rheumatoid arthritis
    Pneumoconiosis
    Asbestosis
    Silicosis
    Other
    Other forms
    Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis
    Pulmonary Langerhans' cell histiocytosis
    Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis
    Eosinophilic pneumonia
    Post-ARDS Fibrosis
    Drug-related
    Radiotherapy associated
    Fibrosis in emphysema patients without signs of other ILDs (i.e. smoking related
    interstitial fibrosis or "emphysemasclerosis")
    Others
    Not classifiable
    Furthermore for each subtype it will be queried, if a diagnosis of concomitant emphysema
    in ILD was made.

You may not be eligible for this study if the following are true:

  • Patients without interstitial lung disease

Recruitment Status: Open
