Question: Can you be with someone with cystic fibrosis?

Although you might want to date or spend time with someone else who has cystic fibrosis (CF), it could be dangerous for you to meet them in person. When you have CF, youre at risk from different kinds of bacteria that dont normally harm healthy people.

What does Trikafta do for CF?

Trikafta is a CFTR modulator that helps defective CFTR proteins work more effectively. Both elexacaftor and tezacaftor work as correctors. They bind to the faulty CFTR protein and help it fold correctly. This way, cells can shuttle more of it to the membrane instead of degrading it.

Is Trikafta a cure for CF?

Trikafta is a transformational drug that can treat up to 90% of Canadians with cystic fibrosis. It is a triple combination precision medicine (ivacaftor, tezacaftor and elexacaftor).
