Important Update on TRIKAFTA
We are excited to announce that Vertex Pharmaceuticals has selected Foundation Care Pharmacy to dispense TRIKAFTA.
TRIKAFTA (elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor and ivacaftor) is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) in patients ages 12 years and older who have at least one copy of the F508del mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene. Patients should talk to their doctor to learn if they have an indicated CF gene mutation. It is not known if TRIKAFTA is safe and effective in children under 12 years of age.
TRIKAFTA is designed to increase the quantity and function of the F508del-CFTR protein at the cell surface. The approval of TRIKAFTA was supported by positive results of two global Phase 3 studies in people ages 12 years and older with CF: a 24-week Phase 3 study in 403 people with one F508del mutation and one minimal function mutation (F/MF) and a 4-week Phase 3 study in 107 people with two F508del mutations (F/F).
As the patient, you can chose your pharmacy you prefer when starting TRIKAFTA treatment. Please tell your prescriber to list Foundation Care as your preferred pharmacy for TRIKAFTA to get high quality care and support with your new therapy.
