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 Cystic Fibrosis market .
