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.
We strive to continue to broaden access to our existing medicines in countries where they are not yet approved for use by a health authority. We also work with local government agencies to develop reimbursement arrangements that will enable access to our medicines.
