The purpose of the LAM Task Force was to
produce evidence based, consensus guidelines
for the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of
patients with LAM. The two Chairmen designed
the objectives, obtained European Respiratory
Society sponsorship and recruited appropriate
specialists. The Core panel had overall responsibility
for the development of the guidelines. The
Consultant panel advised on specialist aspects.
The Review panel reviewed the documents and
comprised all members of the Core and
Consultant panels plus international experts in
LAM, interstitial lung diseases and representatives
of European thoracic societies.
