Vertex's Cystic Fibrosis Journey

Alongside the cystic fibrosis (CF) community, we have spent the last 20 years doing what was once thought impossible — discovering and developing medicines that treat the underlying cause of this devastating disease. We have delivered four medicines to certain people with CF, with the potential of treating up to 90% of all people with one of these medicines. Our success is a testament to our partnership with the CF community and the dedication of our team at Vertex.

We've set a high bar for ourselves, and we will continue to push ourselves to discover potential treatments that could work for all people with CF.

As we continue our CF journey, we have three areas of focus:


We've come a long way, but there is still more to do. Our goal is to one day cure CF.
