VIEW UP TO 120 WEEKS OF DATA ON ORKAMBI FROM TRIALS 1 AND 2 AND EXTENSION STUDY
Trials 1 & 2 Study Design: Trials 1 and 2 were 24-week, Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of patients with CF who were homozygous for the F508del mutation and age 12 years and older. The primary endpoint was mean absolute change in percent predicted FEV1 at Week 24. Patients received either ORKAMBI (lumacaftor 400 mg/ivacaftor 250 mg q12h) or placebo and continued to take their prescribed CF therapies.1
Extension Study Design: Patients who completed Trials 1 and 2 were eligible to enroll in a 96-week Extension Study. Of patients from Trials 1 and 2, 340 patients continued to receive ORKAMBI during the Extension Study and 176 rolled over from placebo to ORKAMBI. The primary endpoint was safety of long-term treatment with ORKAMBI.2
