This is a multicenter, cross-sectional, cohort study which will collect contemporary sweat chloride (SC) values from approximately 5000 Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients prescribed and currently receiving commercially approved Cystic Fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulator therapies.

Detailed Description

Eligible subjects who have been prescribed and chronically taking a commercially approved CFTR modulator for at least 3 months will be enrolled for a single visit to collect sweat to be analyzed for SC at their local site laboratory. Limited clinical data obtained at this visit will be augmented by retrospective and prospective data obtained from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry (CFFPR). Study subjects who have been prescribed and switch to an alternative commercially approved CFTR modulator will be approached to re-enroll in the study after being on the alternative modulator for at least 3 months so that a new SC value can be obtained.


Study information shown on this site is derived from ClinicalTrials.gov (a public registry operated by the National Institutes of Health). The listing of studies provided is not certain to be all studies for which you might be eligible. Furthermore, study eligibility requirements can be difficult to understand and may change over time, so it is wise to speak with your medical care provider and individual research study teams when making decisions related to participation.
