InterMune, a biotechnology company focused on the research, development, and commercialization of innovative therapies in pulmonology and orphan fibrotic diseases is currently conducting a clinical trial in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), ASCEND. ASCEND is a multinational, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled Phase 3 trial designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Esbriet® (pirfenidone) in IPF patients with mild to moderate impairment in lung function. “Having completed in January 2013 the full enrollment of the ASCEND Phase 3 study of pirfenidone, which is intended to support U.S. marketing approval, we are much closer to the goal of bringing Esbriet to IPF patients in the United States, who currently have no approved treatment options,” said InterMune Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President Dan Welch. InterMune will provide information about IPF and ASCEND at Booth 1245 in the Exhibit Hall.
