Conference Coverage

ASCEND, INPULSIS, and PANTHER are further covered in a roundtable format. Our experts explore the clinical endpoints, inclusion criteria, and clinical implications of these recent trials. The clinical use of drug combinations is also discussed.

Harold R. Collard, MD (Co-Chair, Moderator); Luca Richeldi, MD, PhD (Co-Chair); Vincent Cottin, MD, PhD; Sonye K. Danoff, MD, PhD; David Lederer, MD, MS


Conference Coverage

ASCEND, INPULSIS, and PANTHER are random controlled clinical trials of emerging therapies for IPF. Three experts present the study design, inclusion criteria, and results of these trials.

Harold R. Collard, MD; David Lederer, MD, MS; Luca Richeldi, MD, PhD


Conference Coverage

Our expert panel discusses new developments in biomarkers of IPF and disease progression. Studies of familial IPF reveal biochemical changes in the absence of clinical disease.
