New Research on the Horizon!

A few weeks ago, the CF Foundation announced some big steps in CF research!

The drug VX-809 ,has moved into Phase 2 Trials! They will begin testing this drug on CF patients to see how it works, as we speak. This drug is the first drug to actually correct the CF defect instead of just treat CF it's really promising! Click on the link above to read more about it.

I am stoked with this news! It's a real promising drug. Join me in praying the researchers continue to find good results as the go through the trials and that there are patients eligible to participate. Thanks to everyone who has supported CF, our hard work is paying off with some great studies being done :).

Emily! This is incredible news! What an awesome possibility?! How long does the testing last? Would you be interested in being a test patient?
