Even though the pandemic paused many of our social interactions and gatherings for a long time, the fight against cystic fibrosis did not stop for the tens of thousands of patients across the country and world. In 2021, Trikafta, a triple combination therapy that treats the underlying cause of CF for more than 90% of patients, was approved for children ages 6-11. Last week, it was approved for additional patients, aged between two and five! However, nearly 10% of the CF population, whose mutation deems them ineligible, does not qualify for this transformational treatment. For this reason, and many more, we continue our fight for a cure.
