AstraZeneca at ERS Virtual Congress 2020

This year, the ERS congress is an innovative and interactive virtual event, with live sessions taking place on 7–9 September 2020, but content will remain available for the rest of the year.

AstraZeneca is showcasing pioneering work across asthma, COPD and more. Through the ERS platform, you are able to access the AstraZeneca virtual exhibition area, watch the five exciting and collaborative symposia and view the latest posters and oral presentations, covering new and updated data from our respiratory studies.

AstraZeneca innovative virtual exhibition area at ERS 2020

At this year’s ERS virtual congress, AstraZeneca has created a stimulating and informative exhibition booth, packed with the latest information and news on emerging science and developments in respiratory medicine. This includes information on advances in practice, innovation in patient care and key drivers of respiratory disease.

Although the format of this year’s ERS congress has changed, we are excited to welcome you to what we hope is a unique and engaging exhibition experience, which gives you the opportunity to explore the recent developments in respiratory medicine and to discuss the future of respiratory research.

AstraZeneca publications at ERS 2020

At this year’s ERS virtual congress, AstraZeneca has 11 oral presentations (plus accompanying e-posters) and 50 poster presentations on a variety of respiratory topics. Don’t miss out on new data from:


The cross-sectional, multi-country study on the prescription patterns of short-acting β2-agonists (SABAs) and the potential effects on asthma control


The NOVEL observational longiTudinal studY on patients with asthma and/or COPD that aims to describe patient characteristics, treatment patterns and the burden of illness over time and to identify phenotypes and endotypes


New data on exacerbations relative to pneumonia risk and exacerbations by blood eosinophil counts in patients with COPD

Below is a selection of key AstraZeneca abstracts being presented at ERS 2020:
