An Efficacy and Safety Study of Ivacaftor in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Two Splicing Mutations

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio


This postmarketing N of 2 study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of open-label ivacaftor treatment in two sisters with cystic fibrosis and pancreatic sufficiency.


The two sisters have a splicing mutation that is predicted to respond favorably to ivacaftor therapy. In addition to measurement of usual clinical outcomes (i.e. lung function, nutritional status), there is great interest on the impact on nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) airways infection.

Subjects will undergo sputum cultures at baseline and monthly during treatment, initially in the absence of anti-NTM therapy but with the intent to treat with antibiotics if there is persistence of the infection in cultures. Other clinical outcomes will include changes in sweat chloride, lung function and weight. Safety measures will include periodic assessment of liver enzymes. All serious and non-serious adverse events will be collected

CFTR-dependent chloride efflux in cystic fibrosis mononuclear cells is increased by ivacaftor therapy.

The Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) potentiator ivacaftor (Kalydeco®) improves clinical outcome in G551D cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Here, we have investigated whether i...

In vivo and in vitro ivacaftor response in cystic fibrosis patients with residual CFTR function: N-of-1 studies.

Ivacaftor, a cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) potentiator, decreases sweat chloride concentration, and improves pulmonary function in 6% of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with...

Lumacaftor/Ivacaftor in Patients Aged 6-11 Years With Cystic Fibrosis Homozygous for F508del-CFTR.

Combination lumacaftor/ivacaftor has been shown to improve lung function and other endpoints in patients aged ≥12 years with cystic fibrosis homozygous for F508del-CFTR but has not been assessed in ...

An Observational Study of Outcomes and Tolerances in Patients with Cystic Fibrosis Initiated on Lumacaftor/Ivacaftor.

In July 2015, the FDA approved lumacaftor/ivacaftor for use in patients with CF. This drug targets the primary defect in the CFTR protein that is conferred by the F508del CFTR mutation.

Association between glucose intolerance and bacterial colonisation in an adult population with cystic fibrosis, emergence of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia.

Diabetes is common in cystic fibrosis (CF). Glucose can be detected in the airway when the blood glucose is elevated, which favours bacterial growth. We investigated the relationship between dysglycem...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.

A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)

A strain of mice widely studied as a model for cystic fibrosis. These mice are generated from embryonic stem cells in which the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator) gene is inactivated by gene targeting. As a result, all mice have one copy of this altered gene in all their tissues. Mice homozygous for the disrupted gene exhibit many features common to young cystic fibrosis patients, including failure to thrive, meconium ileus, and alteration of mucous and serous glands.

A species of STENOTROPHOMONAS, formerly called Xanthomonas maltophilia, which reduces nitrate. It is a cause of hospital-acquired ocular and lung infections, especially in those patients with cystic fibrosis and those who are immunosuppressed.

A rehabilitation therapy for removal of copious mucus secretion from the lung of patients with diseases such as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS; BRONCHIECTASIS; PULMONARY ABSCESS; or CYSTIC FIBROSIS. The patient's head is placed in a downward incline (so the TRACHEA is inferior to the affected area) for 15- to 20-minute sessions.
