      Eligibility Criteria

      All Gender
      ≥ 40 Years & ≤ 80 Years Age
      No Healthy Volunteers
      Inclusion Criteria
      • Clinical symptoms consistent with IPF of ≥ 6months duration
      • Participants could have both "confident" or "consistent" with UIP diagnosis of IPF based on clinical, radiologic and pathologic data according to 2011 American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (ATS/ERS) guidelines at the Screening. HRCT scan performed within 24 months before the start of the Screening may be used, if it meets all image acquisition guideline
      • No features supporting an alternative diagnosis on transbronchial biopsy, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), or surgical lung biopsy, if performed. Results of the surgical lung biopsy performed within the last 4 years must be confirmed by central review
      • Participants with %FVC ≥ 40 % at the Screening
      • Participants with %Carbon monoxide diffusing capacity (DLCO) ≥ 30 % at the Screening
      • Ability to walk ≥ 100 m during the 6-minute walk test at the Screening
      • Eligible participants must discontinue all prohibited medications at least 28 days before the Screening
      • Female participants of childbearing potential must have negative urine pregnancy test at the Screening and before first dosing on Day 1
      Exclusion Criteria
      • Significant clinical worsening of IPF between Screening and Day 1, in the opinion of the investigator
      • Relevant airways obstruction (i.e. pre-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume (FEV)1/FVC < 0.7)
      • Cigarette smoking within 28 days before the start of treatment or unwilling to avoid tobacco products throughout the study
      • History of clinically significant environmental exposure known to cause pulmonary fibrosis (PF), including but not limited to drugs (such as amiodarone), asbestos, beryllium, radiation, and domestic birds
      • Known explanation for interstitial lung disease, including but not limited to radiation, drug toxicity, sarcoidosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), viral hepatitis, and cancer
      • Clinical diagnosis of any connective tissue disease, including but not limited to scleroderma, polymyositis/ dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis
      • During baseline analysis of HRCT, significant coexistent emphysema (emphysema extent greater than extent of fibrosis) confirmed by central review
      • Planned lung transplantation during the study
      • Clinical evidence of active infection, including but not limited to bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, urinary tract infection, or cellulitis
      • Unable to perform 6MWT or to undergo pulmonary function test
      • Any history of malignancy likely to result in significant disability or likely to require significant medical or surgical intervention within the next 1 years. This does not include minor surgical procedures for localized cancer (e.g., basal cell carcinoma)
      • History of severe hepatic impairment or end-stage liver disease
      • History of end-stage renal disease requiring dialysis
      • History of unstable or deteriorating cardiac or pulmonary disease (other than IPF) within the previous 6 months
      • Pregnancy or lactation, or intention to become pregnant during the study. Women of childbearing capacity are required to have a negative urine pregnancy test before treatment and must agree to maintain highly effective contraception
      • Liver function test outside specified limits at the Screening: total bilirubin above the upper limit of normal (ULN); aspartate or alanine aminotransferase (AST or ALT) > 3 × ULN; alkaline phosphatase > 2.5 × ULN
      • Creatinine clearance < 30 mL/min, calculated using the Cockcroft-Gault formula
      • Electrocardiogram (ECG) with a QT interval corrected according to Fridericia's formula (QTcF) > 500 msec at the Screening
