This is a prospective, multi-center observational study. The study is designed to measure the clinical effectiveness of elexacaftor, tezacaftor and ivacaftor (ETI) triple combination therapy in children (6-11 years of old) with one or more copies of the F508del mutation, study the effects of ETI across a number of CF disease manifestations, and collect specimens for future research. Subjects in the study will have one "before ETI" visit within 30 days before initiation of the therapy and five "after ETI" visits over a 24-month follow-up period. The duration of participation for each subject is 25 months. NOTE: Study will not begin unless and until FDA approval for ETI in the 6-11 age group is granted.


While nearly 2000 mutations have been described, the most common disease causing CFTR mutation is F508del, which is found in >85% of patients followed in the US CF Patient Registry. Two CFTR corrector drugs (elexacaftor and tezacaftor) plus the potentiator ivacaftor have been developed and approved as a triple combination therapy for CF patients (12 years old and above) with one or two copies of the F508del mutation. We predict that over 90% of pediatric CF patients (age 6-11 y/o) will be eligible for highly effective CFTR modulator therapy in the U.S.

The PROMISE Pediatric Study is designed to measure the direct and indirect CFTR dependent anion secretion by collecting and analyzing clinical research outcomes and biomarkers on pediatric patients both before and after they begin treatment with ETI. This study will investigate the impact of ETI across a wide range of CF disease manifestations and organ systems. While specific biomarkers of special interest have been selected for detailed analysis in this study, an additional important goal is to collect blood, urine, stool, and airway epithelial cell specimens for long-term storage in a biorepository to enable future research. These samples can be made available for research beyond the current scope of work. The PROMISE Pediatric Study will provide a coordinated collection of clinical research outcomes data that can be linked with these specimens.
