Pharmacotherapy of Cystic Fibrosis

Pharmacotherapy relates to the use of chemical drugs to regulate and improve the function of defective CFTR channels.


Potentiators

Example VX-770

Attempt to correct Class III and Class IV CFTR mutations by increasing the conductance of the CFTR channel.

Correctors

Example Trimethyl-oxide

Attempt to correct Class II CFTR mutations by improving the trafficking of CFTR channels to the Cell Membrane.
