Introduction: Interstitial lung disease (ILD) comprises a heterogeneous group of diseases affecting the lung interstitium often associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The Australasian Interstitial Lung Disease Registry (AILDR) launched in 2016 with the concurrent aims to: a) provide a valuable resource for high quality ILD research to further understanding of ILD and b) improve care for ILD patients across Australia and NZ. Consisting initially of four pilot sites, over time the registry has expanded to 21 sites across Australasia. Methods: Consecutive ILD patients attending any of the registered ILD centres across Australia and NZ are eligible to enrol in the AILDR following provision of informed consent. Comprehensive data including demographics, ILD diagnosis, objective functional markers (baseline and subsequent tests) and treatment parameters are collected and stored on a secure online platform. We report data from the AILDR since initiation in May 2016 to 30th September 2021 inclusive. Results: In total 2140 participants were enrolled from 16 sites at a mean rate of 43/month (mean age 65.8±13.3years;1185 (55.4%) male;982 (45.9%) ever-smokers;mean BMI 29.4±5.9kg/m2). Baseline functional parameters demonstrated mean FVC 85.6±21.7% predicted, mean DLCO 60.5±19.4%predicted, and mean six-minute walk test (6MWT) distance 434.3±126.5metres. ILD diagnoses included: idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) n=545 (30.3%), connective tissue disease associated ILD (CTD-ILD) n=326 (18.1%), chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis (CHP) n=155 (8.6%), sarcoidosis n=120 (6.7%) and unclassifiable ILD n=190 (10.6%). Patients with IPF were more likely to be male (n=403, 73.9%, p<0.001) and older (72.6±8.3years, p<0.001) compared to all other ILD subtypes. A female predominance was observed for CHP (n=92, 59%, p=0.001) and CTD-ILD (n=206, 63%, p<0.001). Baseline functional parameters were lowest for those with CHP (FVC 76.8±22.4% predicted, DLCO 54.1±16.9% predicted), significantly lower comparable to the IPF group (FVC 84.8±19.6%predicted, DLCO 58.7±17.8%predicted, p<0.001). The highest baseline functional parameters were observed in those with sarcoidosis. Conclusion: We demonstrate the feasibility of a bi-national ILD registry evidenced by steady recruitment despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In this study, lower functional baseline parameters were detected in the CHP group suggesting priority research should be afforded to this group. Through a routine approach across Australasia, the AILDR aims to improve standardisation of diagnosis and management of ILD patients.

Background Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a known complication of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with a lifetime risk in any individual of 7.7%. The TRAIL1 trial was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, phase 2 study of safety, tolerability, and efficacy of pirfenidone for the treatment of patients with RA-ILD. Methods The TRAIL1 was a phase 2 trial intended to enroll 270 adult patients (18 to 85 years) with established RA-ILD at 33 sites in 4 countries. Patients were randomly assigned (1:1) to 2,403 mg oral pirfenidone or placebo daily. The primary endpoint was the incidence of the composite endpoint of decline from baseline in percent predicted forced vital capacity (FVC%) of 10% or greater or death during the 52-week treatment period. Key secondary endpoints included change in absolute and FVC% over 52 weeks. Findings. The trial was stopped early due to slow recruitment and soon after the shutdown of clinical trials as a consequence of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Data from 123 patients enrolled were analyzed. The primary endpoint was met by 11.1% on pirfenidone vs. 15% on placebo [OR=0.67 (0.22, 2.03), p=0.48]. Subjects receiving pirfenidone had a slower rate of decline in lung function as measured by estimated annual change in FVC(ml) (-66 vs. -146, p=0.0082) and FVC(%) (-1.02 vs. -3.21, p=0.0028). This effect on decline was also seen when analyzed within participants with baseline usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) pattern on HRCT (FVC(ml) (-43 vs. -169, p=0.0014) and FVC% (-0.2 vs. -3.81, p=0.0002)). There was no significant difference in the rate of treatment-emergent serious adverse events. Interpretation Due to early termination of the study, results should be interpreted with caution. Despite being underpowered to evaluate the primary endpoint, pirfenidone slowed the rate of decline of FVC over time in subjects with RA-ILD. Safety in patients with RA-ILD was similar to that seen in other pirfenidone trials.
