Channelopathies.

Channelopathies are a heterogeneous group of disorders resulting from the dysfunction of ion channels located in the membranes of all cells and many cellular organelles. These include diseases of the nervous system (e.g., generalized epilepsy...

Emerging gene therapies for cystic fibrosis.

Areas covered: We review emerging gene therapies and gene delivery strategies for the treatment of CF particularly viral and non-viral approaches with potential to treat CF.

A phase 3 study of tezacaftor in combination with ivacaftor in children aged 6 through 11 years with cystic fibrosis.

Background: Tezacaftor/ivacaftor is a new treatment option in many regions for patients aged ≥12 years who are homozygous (F/F) or heterozygous for the F508del-CFTR mutation and a residual function (F/RF) mutation.

Delivering on the promise of gene editing for cystic fibrosis.

In this review, we describe a path for translation of gene editing into therapy for cystic fibrosis (CF). Cystic fibrosis results from mutations in the CFTR gene, with one allele predominant in patient populations.

A Systematic Review of the Clinical Efficacy and Safety of CFTR Modulators in Cystic Fibrosis.

Several placebo-controlled trials have been recently published evaluating novel therapies targeting the defective CFTR protein. This systematic review examines the clinical efficacy and safety of CFTR modulators in individuals with...

Aztreonam Lysine Inhalation Solution in Cystic Fibrosis.

Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) develop pulmonary disease secondary to airway infection and dysregulated inflammation. Therapeutic innovations such as nebulized antimicrobial therapy targeting specific pathogens have resulted in...

The combination of tezacaftor and ivacaftor in the treatment of patients with cystic fibrosis: clinical evidence and future prospects in cystic fibrosis therapy.

Years of tremendous study have dawned a new era for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF). For years CF care was rooted in the management of organ dysfunction resulting from the mal-effects of absent anion transport through...

Inhaled hypertonic saline in preschool children with cystic fibrosis (SHIP): a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Background: Inhaled hypertonic saline enhances mucociliary clearance, improves lung function, and reduces pulmonary exacerbations in people with cystic fibrosis older than age 6 years. We aimed to assess the effect of inhaled...

Augmentation of CFTR function in human bronchial epithelial cells via SLC6A14-dependent amino acid uptake: Implications for treatment of Cystic Fibrosis.

Rationale: SLC6A14 mediated L-arginine transport has been shown to augment the residual anion channel activity of the major mutant, F508del-CFTR, in the murine gastrointestinal tract. It is not yet known if this transporter...

Disease progression in patients with cystic fibrosis treated with ivacaftor: Data from national US and UK registries.

Background: Ivacaftor is the first in a class of drugs, CFTR modulators, that target the underlying defect in cystic fibrosis (CF). This long-term observational safety study evaluated CF disease progression in patients treated...
