“We continue to make significant progress toward our goal of developing medicines for all people with CF as marked by the recent approvals of KALYDECO and ORKAMBI in younger children, the launch of SYMDEKO in the U.S. and the rapid progress we have made with our triple combination pivotal studies," said Jeffrey Leiden, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vertex. "In our development pipeline, we are advancing potential medicines for pain, sickle cell disease and beta thalassemia and are also beginning to advance additional compounds from research into early clinical development that could fundamentally change the treatment of other serious diseases in the future."

Dr. Leiden continued, "Our ability to treat more and more people with CF is driving revenue and earnings growth and significant cash flow generation, which enables the company to invest to discover and develop transformative future medicines for the treatment of CF and other life-threatening diseases."
