The Drug Development Pipeline shows three main categories of drugs -- those that are in
To be listed as a preclinical program on the pipeline, a program must have received an award from the Foundation committing at least $2 million or have received an award that includes payments that depend on the drug reaching clinical trials.
In order for drugs to be listed in Phases 1-3 on the pipeline, they need to be tested within the Therapeutics Development Network (TDN) and/or be funded by the Foundation. The drugs are not listed until Phase 1 clinical trials in healthy volunteers have been completed.
When a sponsor decides not to pursue further development, drugs are moved into the discontinued section of the pipeline. (Click on the “discontinued” status box to see discontinued drugs.) Eventually, they are removed from the website.
Medical devices such as pumps, nebulizers, and airway clearance devices are not listed on the pipeline.
To advance drug development and a search for a cure, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) has contracts with several companies to help fund the development of potential treatments and/or cures for cystic fibrosis. Pursuant to these contracts, CFF may receive milestone based payments, equity interests, royalties on the net sales of therapies, and/or other forms of consideration. Resulting revenue received by CFF is used in support of our mission.
