Kalydeco (ivacaftor) Information

Kalydeco is approved for the treatment of CF in patients age six years and older who have the specific G551D mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) gene. In patients with the G551D mutation, Kalydeco helps the protein made by the CFTR gene function better and, as a result, improves lung function and other aspects of CF such as increasing weight gain.
