Substantial emphysema on high resolution computer tomography (HRCT) with degree of emphysema greater than fibrosis. 3. Patient is an active smoker. 4. Patient has evidence of active infection. 5. Patients currently has or has a history of cancer, except basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. 6. Patient has a concurrent medical or psychological condition that, in the investigator's opinion, may compromise the patient's ability to participate in the study or give informed consent, or may complicate the evaluations of the study drug. 7. Patient is receiving another investigational treatment for IPF at screening and/or plans to receive an investigational treatment for IPF during the current study. 8. Patient has chronic hepatitis or significantly elevated liver enzyme levels, defined as alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≥ 2.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN) or total bilirubin above ULN. 9. Female patient who is pregnant, breast-feeding, or planning a pregnancy during the course of the study. 10.
