This study will be divided into 2 parts. Part 1 is a randomized, double-blind, single centre, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose (SAD) phase I study designed to assess the safety, tolerability, PK and PD (Pharmacodynamic) of TD139 in up to 36 healthy male subjects. Part 2 will be a randomized, double-blind, multi-centre, placebo-controlled, multiple dose expansion cohort, designed to assess the safety, tolerability, PK and PD of TD139 in up to 24 male subjects and female subjects of non child-bearing potential with IPF.
Up to 6 cohorts of 6 subjects will be randomly assigned in a blinded fashion to receive either a single dose of TD139 or matching placebo via DPI (dry powder inhaler) in an ascending dose fashion.

A single cohort of up to 24 patients will be randomly assigned in a blinded fashion to receive a single dose of TD139 or placebo via DPI once daily for 14 days in a 2:1 TD139 to placebo ratio. The dose of TD139 selected will be based on data from Part 1 and on pre-clinical efficacy and safety data.
