Another Big Step Toward a Cure!Kalydeco became the first FDA approved drug which targets the root cause of CF. Unfortunately, Carson does not have the same mutation targeted by this drug. However, there are other clinical trials in progress which use Kalydeco in combination with an additional drug to target F508del which is the most common mutation (and the one Carson suffers from). Results from the 3rd stage of clinical trials were successful and this drug combination could potentially be available as early as the end of 2015. This is yet another powerful example of how the CF Foundation's efforts are working in discovering a cure for this disease!
