Abstract

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.
