Already dominant in cystic fibrosis, Vertex hopes its triple regimen will address roughly 90% of the patient population. It also hopes the benefits of the triple will smooth EU reimbursement talks.
Two three-drug regimens for cystic fibrosis hit their primary endpoints in both heterozygous and homozygous patients, with good safety and tolerability, which analysts say increases the likelihood one of them will obtain approval.
Now that the EMA has followed its US counterpart in granting approval for its cystic fibrosis drug Symkevi, Vertex will once again have to navigate Europe's various reimbursement systems, with observers keeping a close eye on how talks with NICE go.
