Another Big Step Toward a Cure!
A pharmaceutical company partially funded by the CF Foundation, Vertex, has submitted an NDA (new drug application) to the FDA for approval of a drug combination which treats the root cause of CF. The drugs have been tested for those 12 years and older who have two copies of the F508del mutation of CF (the type Carson has along with about 50% of CF patients). This is yet another powerful example of how the CF Foundation's efforts are working in discovering a
cure for this disease!
