Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Change From Baseline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) Rate to Week 26 - FVC is the is the total amount of air exhaled during the forced expiratory volume test that is measured during spirometry; and is the most important measurement of lung function. This test requires participant to breath into a tube connected to a machine that measures the amount of air that can be moved in and out of the lungs after taking an inhaled bronchodilator medicine which is used to dilate participant's bronchial (breathing) tubes.

Baseline, Week 26
Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
Geometric Mean Ratio (GMR) of Quantitative Lung Fibrosis (QLF) Score at Week 26 to Baseline - The QLF score itself ranges from 0 to 100%, where greater values represent a greater amount of lung fibrosis and are considered a worse health status. Hence smaller geometric mean ratios to baseline were considered favorable. Baseline included all testing done on Day -1 as well as predose on Day 1.

Baseline, Week 26
Secondary outcome [2] 0 0
Mean Change From Baseline in Six-minute Walk Test (6MWT) Distance to Week 26 - The 6MWT measures the distance (in meters), a participant is able to walk in 6 minutes. This test measures the distance a person can walk quickly on a flat, hard surface in 6 minutes and reflects an individual's ability to perform daily physical activities. Baseline included all testing done on Day -1 as well as predose on Day 1

Mean Change From Baseline in the University of California at San Diego Shortness of Breath Questionnaire (UCSD SOBQ) Total Score as a Measure of Dyspnea to Week 26 - The UCSD SOBQ is a 24-item questionnaire developed to measure breathlessness on a scale between zero and five where 0 is not at all breathless and 5 is maximally breathless or too breathless to do the activity. Baseline included all testing done on Day -1 as well as predose on Day 1. The total score ranges from 0 to 120, with higher scores indicating worse dyspnea.

Mean Change From Baseline in Quality of Life as Measured by the Medical Outcomes Study (MOS) 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) to Week 26 - The SF-36 determines participants' overall quality of life by assessing 1) limitations in physical functioning due to health problems; 2) limitations in usual role because of physical health problems; 3) bodily pain; 4) general health perceptions; 5) vitality; 6) limitations in social functioning because of physical or emotional problems; 7) limitations in usual role due to emotional problems; and 8) general mental health. Items 1-4 primarily contribute to the Aggregate Physical score of the SF-36. Items 5-8 primarily contribute to the Aggregate mental score of the SF-36. Scores on each item are summed and averaged. Range for Aggregate Physical Score : 0=worst to 100=best; and for Aggregate Mental Score: 0=worst to 100=best. Increases from baseline indicate improvement. Baseline included all testing done on Day -1 as well as predose on Day 1

Mean Change From Baseline in Carbon Monoxide Diffusing Capacity (DLCO) to Week 26 - DLCO is a measurement of the ability of the lungs to transfer gases from the air to the blood. Participant breathe in (inhale) air containing a very small, harmless amount of a tracer gas, such as carbon monoxide. Participant hold the breath for 10 seconds, then rapidly blow it out (exhale). The exhaled gas was tested to determine how much of the tracer gas was absorbed during the breath. DLCO, both uncorrected and corrected for hemoglobin in milliliter per minute per millimeter of mercury (mL/min/mmHg) was assessed.

Number of Participants With Definite or Probable Acute Exacerbation (AEx) of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) - Acute IPF exacerbations is defined as a clinically significant deterioration of unidentifiable cause in a participant with underlying IPF. Exacerbations of IPF were adjudicated as definite (>=1 AEx) and Probable. Investigators were asked to make the diagnosis of acute exacerbation of IPF on the basis of subjective worsening over 30 days or less, new bilateral radiographic opacities, and the absence of infection or another identifiable etiology. The final diagnosis, however, was confirmed by the study medical monitor.

doses for statins listed below. If subjects are currently taking statins and
their doses are higher than those mentioned below, please reduce the dose to the
maximum allowable dose.

Additionally, if subjects are on statins and ready to start dosing, these subjects should
limit statin doses by maximal allowable dose or lower for at least 5 days prior to the
first BMS-986020 dosing. Shorter durations may be considered in select cases after
discussion with the medical monitor.

machine read QT interval (either corrected or not) may not be accurate. If the
investigator is uncertain about the QT abnormality, it is recommended that ECGs be
over-read by a cardiologist. The manually read QT interval by a cardiologist should be
used for assessment of eligibility whenever possible.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to determine if study drug (BMS-986020) dose of 600 mg once
