Thank you. Just saw this as well. I have only been waiting for 10 YEARS! Hope this is good enough for FDA approval.

Lisa, from drug discovery to market, drugs usually take 10-15 years.

This is great news for these patients! Fingers crossed!

I wonder what the combo of Atalauren and Kalydeco would do together?

They must have been eager to compete with recent Vertex results.

Does anybody know what the data given so far, translates to percentages? All I have heard is that there is "decrease in decline of function" and decreased exacerbations, but I get the feeling that the results haven't been as dramatic as the avg 10% seen with Kalydeco (ivacaftor) Congrats to all you nonsense mutations!
