<b>A Phase 2 trial for those with Delta F508 is underway to test VX-770 in combination with a drug known as VX-809.</b> Like VX-770, VX-809 resulted from discovery efforts between Vertex and the CF Foundation. Laboratory studies suggest a combination of the two drugs may be more beneficial than either one alone. <b>Results of this clinical trial are expected later this year. </b>

<b>Is anyone here on this drug study??</b>

No unfortunately i'm not...but I'd love to be trialled for it! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

Hope fully they will be starting trials here in N.Z soon!

I participated in this study back in November. I don't have much to say as I was not given any feedback regarding the multiple sweat tests and bloodwork. My pft's remained essentially unchanged during the study.

May I ask your normal FEV1, Kevin?

And how long was that study for Kevin. I just read on the CFF that with the Vertex 770, that

"Patients who took the drug, compared to those on placebo, <b>showed a marked improvement in lung function at 24 weeks</b>, which was sustained for the duration of the 48-week trial."

Safe to say he was on the placebo?

Thanks, musclemania. I was becoming bummed that maybe the combo wasn't working, but true he could have been on the placebo.
