Descriptive Information
Brief Title Study to Evaluate Biological & Clinical Effects of Significantly Corrected CFTR Function in Infants & Young Children
Official Title A Prospective Study to Evaluate Biological and Clinical Effects of Significantly Corrected CFTR Function in Infants and Young Children (BEGIN Study)
Brief Summary This is a two-part, multi-center, prospective longitudinal, exploratory study of highly effective cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators and their impact on children with cystic fibrosis (CF).
Detailed Description

This is a two-part, multi-center, prospective longitudinal, exploratory study of highly effective cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators and their impact in children with cystic fibrosis (CF) on endocrine growth factors and height, gastrointestinal function and gut microbiome, lung function and respiratory microbiome, liver and pancreatic function, sweat chloride, inflammatory markers, and bone health.

Total duration of the study is expected to be 6 years. Part A will be a prospective cross-sequential study to describe the natural history of hormonal growth factors in early childhood and assess the feasibility of additional measurements. In Part A, subjects will have up to 6 visits over a period of up to 3 years.

Part B will be a prospective longitudinal study to observe the effects of administration of either ivacaftor or elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor (elex/tez/iva) on growth. In Part B, subjects will have one "before ivacaftor or elex/tez/iva" visit within 30 days before initiation of the therapy and five "after ivacaftor or elex/tez/iva" visits over a 24-month follow-up period.

Study Population

Part A - children with confirmed diagnosis of cystic fibrosis who are less than 5 years of age and not on ivacaftor or elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor CFTR modulator therapy

Part B - children with confirmed diagnosis of cystic fibrosis who are less than 6 years of age (or participated in Part A of the study) with an intention to start ivacaftor or elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor CFTR modulator therapy

Condition Cystic Fibrosis
Intervention Drug: Ivacaftor or elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor
In Part B, approved CFTR modulator as prescribed at the discretion of the treating physician -not dictated by the BEGIN investigators
Other Names:
  • Kalydeco or Trikafta
  • Vertex (VX)-770 or VX-445/VX-661/VX-770
Study Groups/Cohorts
  • Part A
    Children with CF not on ivacaftor or elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor CFTR modulator therapy.
