  • In advance of its May 26 Analyst Day, InterMune provided a high-level summary of the design of the ASCEND study as follows:  
  • ASCEND will be a placebo-controlled trial of 52 weeks duration with a primary endpoint of change in FVC between baseline and Week 52. The trial will enroll approximately 500 IPF patients with mild-to-moderate impairment in lung function.
  • Relative to the CAPACITY program, the ASCEND study population will be enriched for patients more likely to experience FVC decline and disease progression during the study. 
  • InterMune currently expects to begin enrollment in ASCEND in June 2011. 
  • The study will be primarily enrolled in the United States but will also include sites in Mexico, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
  • InterMune announced on March 3, 2011, that the European Commission (EC) had granted marketing authorization for Esbriet® (pirfenidone).  Esbriet is indicated in adults for the treatment of mild to moderate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a progressive and fatal lung disease.  The approval authorizes marketing of Esbriet in all 27 EU member states.
