The cystic fibrosis community has access to three cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators right now: Kalydeco (ivacaftor), Orkambi (lumacaftor /ivacaftor), and Symdeko (tezacaftor/ivacaftor). Phenotyping Ciliary Dynamics and Coordination in Response to CFTR-modulators in Cystic Fibrosis Respiratory Epithelial Cells M Chioccioli ... 1 Biological and Soft Systems Sector, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, CB3 0HE, UK. Epub 2012 Jun 26. JAMA. Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulator therapies are designed to correct the malfunctioning protein made by the CFTR gene. Petrova G, Yaneva N, Hrbková J, Libik M, Savov A, Macek M Jr. Mol Genet Genomic Med. In addition to CFTR-directed modulators, CFTR dysfunction might be compensated by targeting alternative ion channels, such as ENaC (Moore and Tarran, 2018), the calcium-activated chloride channel transmembrane protein membrane 16A (TMEM16A) (Sondo et al., 2014), and the solute carrier 26A9 (SLC26A9) (Balázs and Mall, 2018). Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator Modulator Therapy: A Review for the Otolaryngologist. Currently these drugs are confined to people with a limited selection of genetic mutations. Pharmacological modulators of F508del-CFTR, aimed at correcting the cellular processing defect (correctors) and the gating defect (potentiators) in CFTR protein, are regarded as promising therapeutic agents for CF disease. The impact of CFTR mutation, and its resulting host environment, on human macrophage iron metabolism remains unknown. After 24 weeks of treatment with Orkambi, patients homozygous for F508del experienced a reduction in the rate of pulmonary exacerbations (30–39%), an absolute change in body mass index (BMI, 0.13–0.41) and an increment of percentage of predicted forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1 % pred) between 4.3% and 6.7% [13]. In contrast to non-responding patients, there are many people with CF experiencing a great benefit under the mentioned CFTR modulator therapies [49]. Thus, these treatments that target the underlying cause of CF have the potential to change the course of CF clinical disease [7, 8]. 2020 Jul;34(4):573-580. doi: 10.1177/1945892420912368.

A defective CFTR protein produces an impaired ion and fluid secretion in the epithelial cells affecting several organs and leading to severe lung disease. CFTR correctors are pharmacological compounds that rescue the CFTR protein to the cell surface. CFTR modulators are a class of drugs which directly target the defective CFTR protein in cystic fibrosis (CF), improving its function with resultant clinical improvements. Ivacaftor is a CFTR potentiator that improves channel opening and is commissioned in the UK for patients with gating mutations, most commonly G551D.

In the present study we reviewed the CFTR modulators currently in the clinic, the improvements made as well as the challenges that still need to be overcome in the field of CF treatments. CFTR modulators are a class of drugs which directly target the defective CFTR protein in cystic fibrosis (CF), improving its function with resultant clinical improvements. CFTR Modulators Dampen Aspergillus-Induced Reactive Oxygen Species Production by Cystic Fibrosis Phagocytes AlexanderJ.Currie1,2,EllenT.Main 1,HeatherM.Wilson ,DariusArmstrong-James3 and AdiliaWarris2* 1AberdeenFungalGroup,InstituteofMedicalSciences,UniversityofAberdeen,Aberdeen,UnitedKingdom,2Medical This resultsin thick secretions that can cause infections, damage, and problems with thelungs, pancreas, and sinuses among ot… 2017 Dec 5;318(21):2130-2131. doi: 10.1001/jama.2017.16823. Moreover, at trial completion, participants were given the option to enrol in a 96-week open-label extension trial. Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! CFTR modulators have dramatically changed the clinical course of CF in those fortunate enough to receive them. Therefore, in order to better tailor personalised treatment choices, new research directions need to identify reliable in vitro systems to predict individual patient responses [32–35]. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation.  |  The arrival of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators as a new class of treatment for cystic fibrosis (CF) in 2012 represented a pivotal advance in disease management, as these small molecules directly target the upstream underlying protein defect. Electronic address: edward.nash@heartofengland.nhs.uk. Instead, tezacaftor/ivacaftor (Symdeko, Vertex Pharmaceuticals) appeared to have a more favourable adverse event and drug-drug interaction profile [7, 18, 19] than lumacaftor/ivacaftor. However, there is a main and highly relevant difference between these two studies. CFTR modulators are the first pharmaceutical class designed specifically to alter the basic defect in CF by either improving the function of CFTR protein present at the cell surface and/or improving the tra cking of the CFTR to the cell surface [20,21]. Lumacaftor is a corrector of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) and ivacaftor is a potentiator of the CFTR. Differences have also been described between the response observed in females and males under treatment with ivacaftor [31]. Furthermore, it remains to be determined whether the next generation of modulators will be effective for individuals bearing rare mutations that are Orkambi resistant. Even in the era of CFTR modulation therapies, the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of some CF micro-organisms remains challenging, especially for patients with more advanced stages of lung disease [51]. We do not capture any email address. doi: 10.1002/mgg3.696. Subsequently, a CFTR “corrector” drug, lumacaftor (VX-809), in combination with ivacaftor (lumacaftor/ivacaftor or Orkambi, Vertex Pharmaceuticals) [12] also showed a modest clinical improvement for patients bearing F508del mutation [13]. Conflict of interest: S. Cuevas-Ocaña has nothing to disclose. Outcomes of pregnancy in women with cystic fibrosis (CF) taking CFTR modulators - an international survey. Because different mutations cause different defects in the protein, the medications that have been developed so far are effective only in people with specific mutations. Currently these drugs are confined to people with a limited selection of genetic mutations. The introduction of CFTR modulators into clinical practice has resulted in a paradigm shift in therapeutic options, ... PBMCs were isolated from whole blood, using Lymphoprep gradient media (Axis-Shield, Dundee, UK) and cultured in complete RPMI medium (RPMI medium containing 10% heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum, 2 mM L-glutamine, 50 U/mL penicillin, 50 μg/mL streptomycin). As a recent study identified, in these cases, the goal would be to study the effects of withdrawing one or more chronic treatments to reduce the CF treatment burden [50].

The identification of reliable individual response prediction tools is even more important for those patients carrying refractory CFTR variants not addressed by available modulators and for those who carry extremely rare CFTR mutations [35–37]. These encouraging results led to the first phase 3, multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial where the triple-combination, elexacaftor, tezacaftor, and ivacaftor, was randomised versus placebo for 403 patients with F508del–minimal function genotypes for 24 weeks [20]. The three main types of modulators are potentiators, correctors, and amplifiers. CFTR transports anions, including chloride and bicarbonate, across the epithelial cell membrane through a cAMP regulated channel, and reduction in this function leads to ion imbalance and dehydration of the epithelial surface [ 1 Am J Respir Crit Care Med. CFTR modulators are an exciting new class of drugs that treat the underlying defect with small molecules that either improve intracellular trafficking or activates the defective CFTR channel. Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators are a class of drugs that act by improving production, intracellular processing, and/or function of the defective CFTR protein. New modulators are in development which will lead to the majority of patients with CF becoming eligible for treatment. Am J Rhinol Allergy. This patient-to-patient variability has been represented in vitro using patient samples, where it was observed that patient responses to lumacaftor or Orkambi can largely vary even among people carrying the same CFTR mutation [25–27]. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Among the approved CFTR modulators, Trikafta can be applicable to the largest number of CF patients [20, 22], as it aims to target those with at least one copy of the F508del CFTR mutation, accounting for up to 90% of people with CF [24].  |  Kalydeco (ivacaftor) is a CFTR potentiator developed by Vertex Pharmaceuticals.  |  Potentiators and correctors. However, treatment with antibiotic tobramycin and antimicrobial peptide, has been shown to restore Orkambi-mediated rescue of F508del-CFTR function in human bronchial epithelial cells infected with clinical strains of P. aeruginosa [54]. Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator-modifying medications: the future of cystic fibrosis treatment. Clin Case Rep. 2019 Feb 17;7(4):616-618. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.2053. Thus, differences in the type of microbial infections across patients and even within a single patient over time could explain the low efficacy in some cases and the high patient-to-patient variability in Orkambi response. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. In addition, scientists are comparing and trying to elucidate the robustness of current methods and markers used to evaluate the benefit of these new modulation therapies [27, 46, 47]. The clinical trial of ivacaftor showed a reduction of sweat chloride concentration under the CF diagnostic range and an increase in lung function of 10% [9, 11]. However, CFTR overactivity or loss-of-function mutations in CFTR are both disease causing conditions. The entry into the clinic of CFTR modulators such as TRIKAFTA has significantly improved life for ∼90% CF patients carrying one or two F508del mutations but challenges remain for rare CFTR mutations and the management of lung infections @SaraOcana1 https://bit.ly/3aRafQF. It has been demonstrated that in-vitro exposure of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) reduced Orkambi-mediated rescue of CFTR function in human bronchial epithelial cells and stimulated the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6 and IL-8) [52, 53].

Effects of Lumacaftor-Ivacaftor Therapy on Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator Function in Phe508del Homozygous Patients with Cystic Fibrosis. SPEEDING UP ACCESS TO NEW DRUGS FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS: CONSIDERATIONS FOR CLINICAL TRIAL DESIGN AND DELIVERY. CFTR modulators are currently considered contraindicated in patients with a solid organ transplant. Advancing clinical development pathways for new CFTR modulators in cystic fibrosis. These drugs demonstrate disease modulation by decreasing pulmonary exacerbations as well as lung function decline, a correlate of survival [ 1 HHS Keywords: CFTR modulators increase the phagocytic capacity in CF macrophages, alter CF macrophage cytokine production, and alter CF monocyte activation 27, 50, 51. Airway Inflammation and Host Responses in the Era of CFTR Modulators. Drugs that target the underlying defect in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein are called CFTR modulators. However, this correction was not recapitulated in patient-derived tissues [40]. The results of these phase 3 clinical studies were similar for the F508del–minimal function and F508 homozygous patients, showing an improvement of FEV1 % pred (in the range of 10.4–13.8%) compared to the control [20] or actively-controlled patients [21], reduction of the sweat chloride concentration (−39.1 to −43.4) and higher patient-reported quality of life. The CFTR protein is an ion channel that mediates chloride and bicarbonate transport in epithelial cells of multiple organs including lungs, pancreas and intestine [2, 3]. Cystic fibrosis (CF) transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators represent a paradigm shift in the treatment landscape of CF ().The effects of CFTR modulators on respiratory function, pulmonary exacerbations, and quality of life have been well documented, as these important clinical endpoints form the basis for regulatory agency approval (). Until the last decade, the only available treatments for CF were focused on managing the symptoms of the disease. Epub 2020 Mar 13. 4 September 2019. However, CFTR mutations can lead to theproduction of defective proteins or to producing no protein at all. While patients homozygous for F508del are usually prescribed either lumacaftor plus ivacaftor or tezacaftor plus ivacaftor, patients with only one copy of F508del are rarely prescribed these treatments given their reported inefficacy. CFTR modulators have been developed as a targeted strategy to restore CFTR function in specific CFTR mutation types. The clinical introduction of CFTR modulators, which are able to restore some CFTR function, has significantly improved the disease course of CF patients over the past years. In this study, although treatment with lumacaftor/ivacaftor reduced exacerbations, the unacceptably frequent adverse events resulted in a very high discontinuation rate [55]. In addition to the lung disease symptoms, CF usually affects pancreas, liver and digestive system, often leading to pancreatic insufficiency, CF-related diabetes, CF liver disease, severe malabsorption and meconium ileus [56–58]. New Therapeutic Approaches to Modulate and Correct Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator. Recent evidence suggests respiratory viral infection may trigger the muco-inflammatory phenotype observed in the CF airways. Epub 2019 Jun 27. It is an oral medication approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the EU, and Health Canada for CF patients as young as 1 with at least one mutation (such as G551D) that impairs chloride ion flow. However, accumulating evidence from previous CFTR modulators prescriptions suggest that not all the patients who are predicted to respond to these treatments might experience the expected benefit. While this discovery constituted an improvement for numerous CF patients F508del homozygous, it is a life changing treatment for those patients with F508del–minimal function genotypes, in whom previous CFTR modulators were ineffective. 2016 Aug;63(4):751-64. doi: 10.1016/j.pcl.2016.04.006. Sep 7, 2020 The arrival of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators as a new class of treatment for cystic fibrosis (CF) in 2012 represented a pivotal advance in disease management, as these small molecules directly target the upstream underlying protein defect. It has been demonstrated that Orkambi showed a modest response to some of these rare mutations (A455E, M1101K, N1303K) in heterologous expression systems [38, 39]. Patients with CFhave mutations in the CFTR gene, which is supposed to create a protein thatregulates the flow of water and chloride in and out of the cells that line thelungs, pancreas, and other organs. In addition, even with these novel drug therapies, managing infections will continue to be a challenge, thus the CF community will need to adapt the standards for an improving, but ageing CF population. National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene [1].

Online ISSN: 2073-4735, Copyright © 2020 by the European Respiratory Society. Ivacaftor, a potentiator, increases the time that the CFTR chloride channel remains open. Cystic fibrosis is caused by a faulty gene that affects the production of a protein called CFTR. USA.gov. Identification of 99% of CFTR gene mutations in Bulgarian-, Bulgarian Turk-, and Roma cystic fibrosis patients. The triple-combination or Trikafta has recently received FDA approval for patients aged 12 years or older who have at least one copy of the F508del CFTR mutation [22, 23]. But in UK, CF patients still don’t have access to Orkambi 3.5 years after American FDA approval (aside from severe cases in the UK – in 2017 243 patients received the drug). CFTR modulators; Cystic fibrosis; Drug interactions; Organ transplantation. Conflict of interest: R. Nenna has nothing to disclose. PBMCs … However, long-term treatment (24–48 h) of lumacaftor in combination with ivacaftor in vitro diminishes the pharmacological correction of F508del-CFTR [16, 17]. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has put forth efforts through the Infection Research Initiative to tackle these issues, including the development of new anti-infective therapies. Experts in the CF field still maintain that “structural biology and functional studies are a powerful combination to elucidate fundamental knowledge about CFTR and are key for the development of better drugs to enable people with CF to live full and active lives” [44, 45]. More than 2000 CF-causing mutations have been identified [4, 5]. In this review, we discuss issues regarding drug interactions, organ transplantation and CFTR modulation. Authors: On behalf of the European CF Society (ECFS) Strategic Planning Task Force on ‘Speeding up access to new drugs for CF’: Margarida Amaral6, Kris de Boeck7, Jane C Davies1, […] Read more. Today’s article is the first in a two-part series discussing to CFTR modulators. The US figures came from data that predated the era of CFTR modulator therapy, whilst the UK data included use of ivacaftor in just 5% of the patients for the latter 3 years, so cannot have had an appreciable effect on long term mortality figures. CFTR modulators, which treat the basic CF defect improve key clinical outcomes in PWCF, including quality of life (QoL). Lee SE, Farzal Z, Daniels MLA, Thorp BD, Zanation AM, Senior BA, Ebert CS Jr, Kimple AJ. Finally, as the median survival for CF continues to increase and the CF population ages, new models for CF care will need to be adopted to tackle an increasing CF population with both CF morbidities and additional diseases of ageing [8]. The introduction of CFTR modulator therapy including Tezacaftor and Ivacaftor/ VX-659 presents an ideal opportunity to collect, catalogue and analyse BAL and sputum samples for the analysis of infectious and inflammatory markers prior to and after treatment. Symdeko was approved, alongside F508del, for a large number of “residual function” CFTR mutations based on in vitro culture responses, paving the way for the triple CFTR modulation [7]. Moreover, a reduction of exacerbations was observed for patients with F508del–minimal function genotypes compared to placebo [20], as well as improvements of BMI [20, 21], which in CF, usually correlates with better survival. The triple CFTR modulation therapy demonstrated good tolerability with only mild or moderate adverse effects and very low rate of discontinuation [20, 21]. Lumacaftor/ivacaftor initiation in two liver transplantation patients under tacrolimus and antifungal azoles. Despite heterogeneity in patient response, the majority of CF patients will be greatly impacted by using a CFTR modulator therapy, thus changing the trajectory of their life. 2 Section of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, 06510, USA. The most common mutation, the deletion of phenylalanine at position 508 (F508del), induces misfolding of the protein that is retained in the endoplasmic reticulum and degraded by proteasomal pathways [6]. Research efforts to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and impact on infections is ongoing in future triple-combination CFTR modulator therapy studies [51].
