lumacaftor is an approved drug (EMA & FDA (2015))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Lumacaftor is termed a cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) corrector, acting to reduce mis-folding of the defective F508del mutant CFTR protein, in comparison to ivacaftor which is termed a CFTR potentiator drug. The F508del mutation is the most common cause of cystic fibrosis and accounts for approximately 60% of CF patients in Europe.
