Several observational studies have shown that cystic fibrosis (CF) patients less than or equal to 6 years of age have clinically silent airway damage. There is growing interest in early initiation of therapies to prevent or delay the progression of this lung disease in CF. In SHIP-CT, the investigators will evaluate treatment effects of HS relative to IS on measures of structural lung disease obtained from chest CT using a novel scoring system sensitive to early lung changes, the Perth-Rotterdam Annotated Grid Morphometric Analysis method for CF (PRAGMA-CF), that quantifies the volume percentage of diseased airways (%Dis), bronchiectasis (%Bx), and trapped air (%TA). As a secondary evaluation of structural airway damage, the investigators will use an image analysis system to measure airway dimensions relative to adjacent arteries (AA-system). Longitudinal changes in CT measures will also be compared to changes in lung function measured by the lung clearance index (LCI) obtained by N2 Multiple Breath Washout (MBW) and to clinical outcomes.
The primary hypothesis is that HS will reduce structural lung disease as assessed by the PRAGMA-CF computed tomography score relative to IS during the 48-week treatment period among preschool children with CF.
SHIP-CT is a parallel study to SHIP001 (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT02378467). The primary hypothesis of SHIP001, which runs in North America, is that compared to IS, HS will improve the LCI, a measure of ventilation heterogeneity, during the 48-week treatment period among preschool children with CF. The SHIP-CT study (SHIP002) will use a nearly identical study design as the SHIP001 study, with similar eligibility criteria and treatment arms, to determine whether HS reduces structural lung disease as measured by chest computed tomography (CT), in addition to stabilizing or improving functional outcomes as measured by LCI.
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, controlled, parallel group trial assessing structural lung disease in children with CF ages 3 to 5 at enrollment. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to receive 7% hypertonic saline (treatment arm) vs. 0.9% isotonic saline (control arm) administered twice daily via jet nebulizer for 48 weeks. Study visits will occur at screening, enrollment, and at Weeks 12, 24, 36, and 48. Parents or the legal guardian will be contacted at Weeks 1, 4 and 8 to document changes in health status, adverse events, concomitant medications/treatments, and encourage study treatment compliance. Parents or the legal guardian will also be contacted approximately every 6 weeks between visit 3, 4, 5, and 6 to address individual issues or concerns related to study treatment or study participation, and to document changes in health status, medications and treatments.
Total duration of participant participation will be up to 53 weeks. As enrollment will occur over approximately 18 months, total duration of the study is expected to be up to 30 months (18 months enrollment plus 12 months for the last participants to complete study participation).

Drug: Active Treatment Group 7% Hypertonic Saline
Drug: 7% Hypertonic Saline (HS) 4 mL of HS will be administered via inhalation twice daily for 48 weeks. The delivery system is a PARI Sprint Junior nebulizer with a PARI Baby face mask or mouthpiece driven by a PARI compressor (PARI Vios® Pro in USA, PARI BOY SX in Australia and Europe).
Hyper-Sal™, inhaled saline
Active Comparator: Control Group
0.9% Isotonic Saline administered via inhalation twice daily for 48 weeks
Drug: Control Group 0.9% Isotonic Saline
Drug: 0.9% Isotonic Saline (IS) 4 mL of IS will be administered via inhalation twice daily for 48 weeks The delivery system is the same as that for the test product.
Other Names: Normal saline
- Chest CT [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]The difference in PRAGMA-CF %Dis between HS and IS study arm at end of study (48 weeks), adjusted for baseline, measured from standardized chest CT.
- PRAGMA-CF Sub-scores [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
i) The difference in PRAGMA-CF sub-scores, %Bx (the volume proportion of the lung with bronchiectasis) and %TA (the volume proportion of the lung with trapped air), between the baseline CT and the 48 week CT.
ii) The absolute number of airways, airway dimensions and AA ratios from TLC CTs, acquired at the 48-week visit.
- Lung Clearance Index (LCI) [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]The difference in LCI, measured by N2 MBW, from baseline to 48 weeks
- Cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]Cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships between primary and secondary PRAGMA-CF outcomes (%Dis, %Bx and %TA) and MBW outcomes (LCI), airway dimensions and PRAGMA-CF and MBW outcomes, as well as CFQ-R scores and PRAGMA-CF and MBW
