With a record 45 clinical trials either ongoing or starting up in 2016, research coordinators and principal investigators throughout the Therapeutics Development Network took time out in San Antonio recently to discuss clinical research and put attendees through boot camp.
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.
Dr. Skach discusses the latest advances in CF research and exciting new approaches to address the underlying cause of the disease.
Hear from John P. Clancy, M.D., the first plenary speaker at this year's NACFC, about recent advances in personalized medicine, which could allow clinicians to better tailor treatment to the individual with CF.
The Foundation hosted a small conference that brought together CF scientists, clinical researchers, and biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry representatives. Learn more and watch a short video of attendees sharing their thoughts about the progress we are making in CF research.
