ORKAMBI UPDATE, 21ST NOVEMBER 2015

Overnight Orkambi, the drug combination of lumacaftor and ivacaftor received EU approval for people with CF 12+ with two copies of the F508del mutation. 

The reimbursement process will now begin country by country. Great news for Europeans with CF and let's hope we get the same good news here in Australia in early 2016.

Spill Card

To demystify and improve understanding about sexual and reproductive health for adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF), a new online tool has been developed by Cystic Fibrosis Victoria, the Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Medical Centre and a range of experts in CF, sexual health and digital communications. SPILL has relevant, targeted and age appropriate information in both text and video formats, for adolescents with CF who are just learning about their sexual and reproductive health.
