Cystic Fibrosis Therapy with VX-661 and VX-770 – Phase II

Evaluating the Safety, Efficacy, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of VX-661 Monotherapy and VX-661/VX-770 Cotherapy in Patients with Cystic Fibrosis, Homozygous for the F508del-CFTR Mutation

Protocol Description

This international multicenter study is being done to learn more about the safety and effects of the drug VX-661 when given alone and in combination with VX-770 to people with cystic fibrosis who have the most common CFTR gene mutation. These medicines-in-development aim to treat the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis by improving the function of the defective protein known to cause the disease.
Study Level: Phase II

Eligibility Criteria

Subject to certain exclusion criteria, adults of both genders who have cystic fibrosis with the F508del-CFTR gene mutation are eligible to participate in this study.  
Males and Females: Ages 18 and older
