Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Participants who received placebo matched to VX-659/TEZ/IVA for 24 weeks in the TC treatment period.
Drug: Placebo
Participants received placebo matched VX-659/TEZ/IVA orally once daily in the morning and placebo matched to IVA orally once daily in the evening.

Experimental: VX-659/TEZ/IVA TC
Participants who received VX-659 240 mg/TEZ 100 mg/IVA 150 mg as fixed-dose combination (FDC) tablets in the morning and IVA 150 mg as mono tablet in the evening for 24 weeks in the TC treatment period.
Drug: VX-659/TEZ/IVA
Participants received VX-659/TEZ/IVA orally once daily in the morning.
Other Names:
  • VX-659/VX-661/VX-770
  • VX-659/tezacaftor/ivacaftor

Drug: IVA
Participants received IVA orally once daily in the evening.

  • VX-770
  • ivacaftor




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute Change in Percent Predicted Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (ppFEV1) [ Time Frame: From Baseline at Week 4 ]
    FEV1 is the volume of air that can forcibly be blown out in one second, after full inspiration.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute Change in Percent Predicted Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second (ppFEV1) [ Time Frame: From Baseline through Week 24 ]
    FEV1 is the volume of air that can forcibly be blown out in one second, after full inspiration.

  2. Number of Pulmonary Exacerbations (PEx) [ Time Frame: From Baseline through Week 24 ]
    Pulmonary exacerbation was defined as the treatment with new or changed antibiotic therapy (intravenous, inhaled, or oral) for greater than or equal to 4 sinopulmonary signs/symptoms.

  3. Absolute Change in Sweat Chloride (SwCl) [ Time Frame: From Baseline through Week 24 ]
    Sweat samples were collected using an approved collection device.

  4. Absolute Change in Cystic Fibrosis Questionnaire Revised (CFQ-R) Respiratory Domain Score [ Time Frame: From Baseline through Week 24 ]
    The CFQ-R is a validated participant-reported outcome measuring health-related quality of life for participants with cystic fibrosis. Respiratory domain assessed respiratory symptoms, score range: 0-100; higher scores indicating fewer symptoms and better health-related quality of life.

  5. Absolute Change in Body Mass Index (BMI) [ Time Frame: From Baseline at Week 24 ]
    BMI was defined as weight in kilogram (kg) divided by height in square meter (m^2).

  6. Absolute Change in Sweat Chloride [ Time Frame: From Baseline at Week 4 ]
    Sweat samples were collected using an approved collection device.

  7. Absolute Change in Cystic Fibrosis Questionnaire Revised (CFQ-R) Respiratory Domain Score [ Time Frame: From Baseline at Week 4 ]
    The CFQ-R is a validated participant-reported outcome measuring health-related quality of life for participants with cystic fibrosis. Respiratory domain assessed respiratory symptoms, score range: 0-100; higher scores indicating fewer symptoms and better health-related quality of life.

  8. Time-to-first Pulmonary Exacerbation (PEx) [ Time Frame: From Baseline through Week 24 ]
    Pulmonary exacerbation was defined as the treatment with new or changed antibiotic therapy (intravenous, inhaled, or oral) for greater than or equal to 4 sinopulmonary signs/symptoms.

  9. Absolute Change in BMI Z-score for Participants <=20 Years of Age at Baseline [ Time Frame: From Baseline at Week 24 ]
    BMI was defined as weight in kg divided by height in m^2. z-score is a statistical measure to describe whether a mean was above or below the standard. BMI, adjusted for age and sex, was analyzed as BMI-for-age z-score. A z-score of 0 is equal to the mean and is considered normal. Lower numbers indicate values lower than the mean and higher numbers indicate values higher than the mean. Higher values are indicative of higher BMI.

  10. Absolute Change in Body Weight [ Time Frame: From Baseline at Week 24 ]
  11. Safety and Tolerability as Assessed by Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug in TC treatment period up to 28 days after last dose of study drug or to the completion of study participation date, whichever occurs first (up to 28 weeks) ]
  12. Observed Pre-dose Concentration (Ctrough) of VX-659, TEZ, M1-TEZ, and IVA [ Time Frame: Pre-dose on Week 4, 8, 12, and 16 ]
