Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated Receives U.S. Food and Drug Administration Approval for ORKAMBITM for Use in People with Cystic Fibrosis

Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee (PADAC) voted 12 to 1 to recommend that the FDA approve ORKAMBITM (lumacaftor/ivacaftor) for use in people with cystic fibrosis (CF) ages 12 and older who have two copies of the F508del mutation in the CFTR gene. Advisory committees provide the FDA with independent scientific and medical advice on safety, effectiveness and appropriate use of potential new medicines. The FDA is expected to make a decision on the approval of ORKAMBI by July 5, 2015 under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA). The FDA is not bound by the committee's recommendation but often follows its advice. If approved, ORKAMBI will be the first and only medicine to treat the underlying cause of CF for eligible people with CF ages 12 and older with two copies of the F508del mutation in the CFTR gene. People with two copies of the F508del mutation represent the largest group of people with CF. There are approximately 8,500 people ages 12 and older with two copies of the F508del mutation in the U.S.
