TRAIL1 (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02808871) was a phase 2 randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled trial investigating pirfenidone in rheumatoid arthritis-associated interstitial lung disease (RA-ILD). We were delighted to speak to Professor Ivan O. Rosas (Baylor College of Medicine, Baylor Medicine McNair Campus, Houston, TX, USA) around the prognosis, choice of therapeutic intervention and the rationale for investigating antifibrotic agents in RA-ILD.
The abstract ‘Randomized, Double Blinded, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 2 Study of Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Pirfenidone in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis Interstitial Lung Disease.‘ (Abstract number: RCT2886) was presented at ERS 2022, 4–6 September, 2022.
