Effect of Lumacaftor/Ivacaftor in Children With Cystic Fibrosis Homozygote for F508del on Small Airway Function

2019-10-29 14:36:38 | BioPortfolio


To obtain prospective real world data of the effect of lumacaftor/ivacaftor or tezacaftor/ ivacaftor on small airway disease in children aged 6-18 years with cystic fibrosis (CF) homozygous for F508del. The effect of the medication on small airway disease is evaluated by measurement of multiple breath washout (MBW) with its outcome parameter lung clearance index (LCI) and the Perth-Rotterdam Annotated Grid Morphometric Analysis for CF (PRAGMA-CF) cpmputed tomography (CT) score. In addition the relation between changes in LCI and PRAGMA-CF score is evaluated.


Multi-center observational study. Duration 12 months after the start of lumacaftor/ ivacaftor or tezacaftor/ ivacaftor .

To collect these data and to assist in clinical decisions regarding initiation and continuation of lumacaftor/ivacaftor or tezacaftor/ ivacaftor, the investigators of the CF center (Beatrix Children's Hospital, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), the Netherlands) developed an extensive protocol of testing before children aged 6-18 years start therapy and during the first year after start.

The protocol includes the following tests: growth parameters, sweat test, lung function testing (spirometry, MBW, body plethysmography), blood test panel (AST, ALT, alkalic phosphatase (AF), total and direct bilirubin, LDH), fecal elastase, high resolution (HR)CT and CF quality of life questionnaires. These tests are repeated at regular intervals.

Multi-center observational study. Duration 12 months after the start of lumacaftor/ ivacaftor or tezacaftor/ ivacaftor .

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.

Intestinal obstruction caused by congealed MECONIUM in the distal ILEUM and CECUM. It presents shortly after birth as a failure to pass meconium and frequently occurs in infants with CYSTIC FIBROSIS.
