|Cystic Fibrosis||Drug: Ivacaftor Drug: Placebo||Phase 3|
This is a Phase 3, 2-part, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group multicenter study of orally administered ivacaftor in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) 6 to 11 years of age who have the G551D-CFTR mutation and a forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) between 90% and 105% predicted (using Knudson standards).
Based on in vitro studies and pharmacologic, pharmacokinetic (PK), and safety profiles, ivacaftor was selected for clinical development as a possible treatment for patients with CF. Patients with the G551D mutation were the targeted population for this study because ivacaftor is a potentiator of the gating effect of the CFTR protein, and the most prevalent mutation with a gating defect in CF is the G551D mutation.
This study was conducted in 2 parts. Part A was conducted to analyze the PK properties of ivacaftor and to determine the most appropriate dose to administer to subjects in Part B of this study. Part B explored the safety and efficacy of ivacaftor over long-term treatment in subjects 6 to 11 years of age.

- Absolute Change From Baseline in Percent Predicted Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: baseline through 24 weeks ]Spirometry (as measured by FEV1) is a standardized assessment to evaluate lung function that is the most widely used endpoint in cystic fibrosis studies.
- Absolute Change From Baseline in Percent Predicted Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (FEV1) Through Week 48 [ Time Frame: baseline through 48 weeks ]Spirometry (as measured by FEV1) is a standardized assessment to evaluate lung function that is the most widely used endpoint in cystic fibrosis studies.
- Absolute Change From Baseline in Cystic Fibrosis Questionnaire-Revised (CFQ-R) Through Week 24 and Week 48 (Respiratory Domain Score, Children) [ Time Frame: baseline through 24 weeks and 48 weeks ]The CFQ-R is a health-related quality of life measure for subjects with cystic fibrosis. Each domain is scored from 0 (worst) to 100 (best). A difference of at least 4 points in the respiratory domain score of the CFQ-R is considered a minimal clinically important difference (MCID).
- Absolute Change From Baseline in Sweat Chloride Concentration Through Week 24 and Week 48 [ Time Frame: baseline through 24 weeks and 48 weeks ]The sweat chloride (quantitative pilocarpine iontophoresis) test is a standard diagnostic tool for cystic fibrosis (CF), serving as an indicator of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) activity.
- Absolute Change From Baseline in Weight at Week 24 and Week 48 [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 weeks and 48 weeks ]As malnutrition is common in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) because of increased energy expenditures due to lung disease and fat malabsorption, body weight is an important clinical measure of nutritional status.
