On February 20, the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) posted a draft evidence report on their assessment of cystic fibrosis therapies. This follows ICER's announcement in early September 2019 that they would be reviewing three cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators, including elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor (TrikaftaTM), the triple-combination therapy approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2019.
CFTR modulators are critically important medicines that have the power to transform the lives of many people living with CF.
The CF Foundation will provide feedback to ICER on the draft evidence report to help ensure their final assessment reflects the complexities of CF and the importance of CFTR modulators.
ICER is inviting people from the CF community to provide public comment on the draft evidence report to help inform the final report. The input period runs through March 18. Comments can be submitted by email to email@example.com.
The final report on CFTR modulators will be released in May 2020.
