We provide information to allow people living with Cystic Fibrosis to access more affordable modulator medicines
Vertex Pharmaceuticals have demanded such high prices for their cystic fibrosis medicines that they are unaffordable for health systems in countries all around the world. Thousands of patients have been prevented from accessing treatments that could transform their lives. We think this is unacceptable.
We provide information that allows people living with cystic fibrosis to access more affordable, but quality-assured generic versions of modulator medicines including ivacaftor (Vertex brand name Kalydeco®) and ivacaftor-lumacaftor (Vertex brand name Orkambi®).
Many countries around the world have legal exemptions allowing the purchase and import of medicines for personal use. Through so-called buyer’s clubs, thousands of patients affected by a range of conditions have accessed quality medicines at a fraction of the price demanded by the patent holder company.
The initial prices from the generic manufacturers are already drastically lower than Vertex’s list prices. We expect to significantly lower the prices by pooling our collective purchasing power through the CF Buyer’s Club. Please register your interest on the form below, to help us lower the prices further.
