A study investigating the impact of Kaftrio® on key clinical outcomes in people with CF in a real-world setting

Study details

The aim of RECOVER is to examine the impact of Kaftrio® on key clinical outcomes in people with CF in a real-world setting.

This clinical trial will use traditional methods of monitoring clinical outcomes in people with CF (e.g. standard lung function, nutrition, exacerbations and liver disease), as well as some new outcome measures not typically used in clinical trials such as lung clearance index (LCI) and spirometry controlled chest CT. These new measures may provide more detail of how taking Kaftrio® affects the lungs.

This study will look at many important outcomes in a number of areas of health in people with CF. Participation will be for 27 months and visits will involve a number of evaluations including measures of lung function, sweat chloride, liver disease assessment, abdominal symptom and quality-of-life questionnaires.

The study will also involve collection of clinical samples (sputum, nasal lavage, stool) to look at inflammation and microbiology of the airways and gut as well as assessing pancreatic function. From this, the RECOVER study will be able to shed more light on how Kaftrio® works, and what impact it has on rescuing and restoring CFTR function in this group of people.
