The incorrect version of the conclusion was published and the reference was omitted. See updates below:

Over a twelve-month period, one-third of referrals were diagnosed with IPF by the NILDS MDT consensus. One-third of patients with IPF were started on AFM. A disparity in the choice of AFM is evident with the majority of patients receiving Nintedanib for treatment of their IPF.

The majority of patients are above the therapeutic threshold at the time of MDT review. Monitoring FVC at regular follow-up is therefore vital to ensure treatment initiation at earliest opportunity.

There was an amendment to the Results paragraph. See corrected version below:

Results: A total of 894 patients initiating FF/VI were matched to 3433 patients initiating BDP/FM. A higher proportion of patients persisted with FF/VI vs BDP/FM over 12 months (Kaplan-Meier analysis; Figure). The likelihood of discontinuing treatment within 12 months after initiation was 31% lower for FF/VI than BDP/FM (index year-adjusted, HR=0.69; 95% CI 0.60 to 0.80; p<0.001). Mean (SD) PDC was 78.2 (25.1) for FF/VI and 71.0 (26.0) for BDP/FM (p<0.0001), with median 89.2 vs 75.9 and significantly higher odds of achieving ≥50% and≥80% PDC for FF/VI vs BDP/FM (747/893 [83.7%] vs 2600/3433 [75.7%]; OR=1.50; 95% CI 1.23 to 1.83; p<0.001 and 526/893 [58.9%] vs 1571/3433 [45.8%]; OR=1.57; 95% CI 1.35 to 1.83; p<0.001, respectively; per-protocol analyses). Annualised rescue use was numerically similar for FF/VI (4.6) vs BDP/FM (4.7).

There was an amendment to the Results paragraph. See corrected version below:

Results: A total of 937 patients initiating FF/VI were matched to 3232 patients initiating BUD/FM. A higher proportion of patients persisted with FF/VI vs BUD/FM over 12 months (Kaplan-Meier analysis; Figure). The likelihood of discontinuing treatment within 12 months after initiation was 35% lower for FF/VI than BUD/FM (index year-adjusted, HR=0.65; 95% CI 0.56 to 0.75; p<0.001). Mean (SD) PDC was 77.7 (25.3) for FF/VI and 72.4 (26.1) for BUD/FM (p<0.0001), with median 88.2 vs 77.7 and significantly higher odds of achieving ≥50% and≥80% PDC for FF/VI vs BUD/FM (779/936 [83.2%] vs 2447/3232 [75.7%]; OR=1.35; 95% CI 1.09 to 1.67; p=0.006 and 544/936 [58.1%] vs 1562/3232 [48.3%]; OR=1.28; 95% CI 1.08 to 1.52; p=0.004, respectively; per-protocol analyses). Annualised rescue use was numerically similar for FF/VI (4.7) vs BUD/FM (4.2).
