Trials Tracker

Welcome to the Trials Tracker, bringing together all the cystic fibrosis (CF) trials currently recruiting in the UK so that you can find clinical trials you can take part in both in your region and further afield. The Trials Tracker is a new resource that we’ll be developing over time based on your feedback. If you’ve used the Trials Tracker and want to share your opinion, please complete our online poll or get in touch at clinicaltrials@cysticfibrosis.org.uk.

A study to learn more about a combination of CFTR modulator medicines in people with Cystic Fibrosis

This study is being done to learn more about a new medication called ‘VX-445’ when taken in combination with tezacaftor and ivacaftor. All three of these medications are known as CFTR modulators. CFTR modulators work to treat the underlying genetic cause of cystic fibrosis. This combination of medication is being assessed in people with Cystic Fibrosis who are 12 years and older and who are homozygous for the F508del mutation. The study will investigate how well these medications work and to check that they are safe to use. It is the hope that this combination of medications will have positive effects in some people with Cystic Fibrosis. Participants will be asked to come into the clinic at the recruitment centre 7-8 times over a 5 month period where study assessments will take place (blood tests, questionnaires, lung function etc.).

PlayPhysio Mobile App Study for young people with Cystic Fibrosis

There are many oscillatory PEP devices on the market to use for chest physiotherapy, with strong evidence that they are effective treatments in clearing the lungs. However, they don’t provide the user feedback to confirm that they are using the correct technique or indicate when each blow or treatment session has been completed. As a result this can lead parents to have a lack of confidence in whether their child is completing the physiotherapy session correctly or completely.A father of a CF patient has developed a device alongside the CF team at Cambridge University Hospital called Play Physio, that can be attached to any oscillatory PEP device. The patient can play games which have been designed to encourage the child to comply with the routine and data is collected and sent to the treating clinician in order to monitor compliance. The aims of this study are to look into the safety and efficacy of the Play Physio device and to investigate the effect of the device on compliance. This is a 24 week study in which the CF patients (ages 8-16) use the Play Physio ® device and associated app. Lung function, paper diaries, in app questionnaires and compliance data will all be analysed.

Study Designed to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and PK of PTI-808 in Adults With Cystic Fibrosis

In this study, the investigational CFTR modulator medicine PTI-808 will be given in combination with one or two other investigational modulator medicines, PTI-801 and PTI-428. PTI-428, PTI-801, and PTI-808 are considered cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators being developed to treat the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis. PTI-428 is a CFTR amplifier that increases the amount of CFTR protein in the cell, PTI-801 is a CFTR corrector that improves the processing of CFTR protein in the cell, and PTI-808 is a CFTR potentiator to enhance the activity of CFTR at the cell surface. Modulators on their own have been shown to have limited activity, and it is predicted that combining modulators will be necessary to address CFTR defects. There is a screening visit up to 4 weeks before the active portion of the study, which lasts 4 weeks. In the active portion of the study, participants will take one of the following: PTI-808 by mouth in combination with PTI-801 and PTI-428, PTI-808 in combination with PTI-801 and placebo, or all placebos for 4 weeks. The study medication is taken once a day at breakfast. Two weeks after stopping the study medication, another visit will occur.

A Study to Assess various doses of an ENaC inhibitor medication (mucociliary clearance) in Healthy Volunteers and People with Cystic Fibrosis

A study medication called ION-827359 is being developed to treat lung disease symptoms in people with cystic fibrosis. The study medication is intended to help treat the thick mucus found in the airways of patients with cystic fibrosis. This new inhaled (nebulized) medication will be investigated in both people with, and without cystic fibrosis. The study will compare the study medication with a placebo (a solution that looks identical to the study medication but contains no active ingredients), which means some participants will receive the study medication, whilst others will receive the placebo. Participants won’t know whether they are receiving the study medication or the placebo. Participation in the study lasts for approximately 21 weeks (just over 5 months), and will require numerous visits to complete study assessments (blood tests, questionnaires, lung function etc.) to the recruitment centre.

High Flow Nasal Therapy during exercise in CF

High flow nasal therapy (HFNT) is a way to deliver a mixture of air and oxygen at higher flows compared to standard oxygen therapy. It has been shown to improve oxygenation, reduce breathlessness and breathing rate, and is quite comfortable. Recently HFNT has been shown to improve exercise capacity and tolerance in patients with other lung diseases. HFNT is routinely used in clinical practice in patients with CF who present acutely unwell during hospital admissions. We believe that HFNT could be used by patients with CF during exercise in order to improve their tolerance, lengthen their exercise sessions, and allow them to be less symptomatic. We propose an initial, small-scale pilot study to assess the feasibility of a larger trial to assess efficacy. The study aims to enrol 20 patients with severe lung disease, during a hospital admission. On top of their routine 6-minute walking test, patients will be asked to have a repeated test on HFNT and to fill in a questionnaire on their physical activity. As exploratory outcomes, we will measure distance walked during the tests, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, breathing rate, and time to recover to baseline. Patients will be asked to rate their comfort and their breathlessness.
