Galapagos and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Sign €1.3 million* Agreement
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics to Provide Alnylam with $1.5 Million in Funding for Discovery Efforts
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Inc. made its first major award last month to advance gene editing research in cystic fibrosis. Editas Medicine Inc. will explore the potential of using what some scientists refer to as “a tiny pair of scissors” to snip out the genetic defect that causes CF.
PTC Therapeutics has discontinued development of ataluren as a potential treatment for people with cystic fibrosis caused by a nonsense mutation. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is supporting efforts to pursue treatments for people with CF who have a nonsense, splicing or other rare mutations.
