Nonprofit issues challenge to accelerate treatments for every person with CF
Study reaffirms the Foundation’s commitment to advance solutions to the growing challenge of antibiotic resistance
Investment will support discovery research of a novel Gene CodingTM approach that could benefit all people with CF regardless of their mutation
Today, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation awarded $2.76 million for 11 laboratory studies that will advance our understanding of the underlying factors that impact COVID-19 outcomes in people with cystic fibrosis. Ultimately, insights gained from this body of research may be used to improve future treatments.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has awarded up to $3 million to Kinnear Pharmaceuticals to conduct preclinical testing of a broad-spectrum anti-infective that has the potential to treat multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas and other infections in people with cystic fibrosis.
Today, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation announced that it has awarded up to $400,000 to Life Edit Therapeutics Inc. to explore the application of their unique gene editing technology in CF.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is awarding up to $15.9 million in additional funding to Eloxx Pharmaceuticals Inc. to expand clinical studies of ELX-02, a potential therapy for people with CF who have nonsense mutations.
