      Eligibility Criteria

      All Gender
      ≥ 40 Years & ≤ 80 Years Age
      No Healthy Volunteers
      Inclusion Criteria
      • Have a diagnosis of IPF 5 years from time of screening, confirmed at baseline
      • Tolerated dose of pirfenidone 1602-2403 mg once daily (QD) for a minimum of 24 weeks required prior to and during screening
      • Greater than or equal to (>=) 50 percent (%) and less than or equal to (<=) 100% of predicted forced vital capacity (FVC) at screening
      • Stable baseline lung function as evidenced by a difference of less than (<) 10% in absolute FVC measurements (in liters) between screening and Day 1/Visit 2 prior to enrollment
      • >=30% and <=90% of predicted diffusion capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide at screening
      • Agree to use protocol defined methods of contraception
      • Male participants must agree not to donate semen during the study and for at least 2 months (or as per local requirements) after the last dose of vismodegib
      • Agree not to donate blood or blood products during the study and for at least 9 months (or as per local requirements) after the last dose of study treatment
      Exclusion Criteria
      • Prior treatment with vismodegib or any Hh-pathway inhibitor
      • Evidence of other known causes of interstitial lung disease
      • Hospitalization due to an exacerbation of IPF within 4 weeks prior to or during screening
      • Lung transplant expected within 6 months of screening
      • Evidence of clinically significant lung disease other than IPF
      • Post-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 second/FVC ratio <0.7 at screening
      • Any clinically significant medical disease (other than IPF) that is associated with an expected survival of <6 months, likely to require a change in therapy during the study
      • Class IV New York Heart Association chronic heart failure or historical evidence of left ventricular ejection fraction <35%
      • Known current malignancy or current evaluation for a potential malignancy
      • Known immunodeficiency, including, but not limited to, human immunodeficiency virus infection
