OpportunityAnalyzer: Cystic Fibrosis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2018 - Event-Driven Update

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by the secretion of thick, sticky mucus which clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs pancreatic enzyme secretions that are essential for the body to break down and absorb nutrients. CF patients have a limited number of available treatment options and significant unmet needs still exist. Opportunities are significant for new therapies that will improve symptoms, change the course of this disease, as well as increase therapy options. The introduction of the first disease modifying therapy, Kalydeco (ivacaftor), by Vertex in 2012, paved the way for a new class of therapies known as cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators. On June 24, 2014, Vertex announced positive Phase III clinical trial data for lumacaftor in combination with Kalydeco in patients with CF who have two copies of the F508del mutation. This novel combination therapy of CFTR modulators has the potential to treat the underlying cause of the disease for approximately 50% of all CF patients and drive rapid growth in the CF market.
