BOSTON -- Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (Nasdaq: VRTX) today reported consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 and revised upward its full-year 2020 financial guidance for product revenues.
"This has been another very strong quarter for Vertex with execution across our CF business and continued earnings and revenue growth," said Reshma Kewalramani, M.D., Chief Executive Officer and President of Vertex. "We are pleased with our progress toward treating all people with cystic fibrosis highlighted by several recent milestones: the early approval and encouraging start of the launch of KAFTRIO in the EU, positive TRIKAFTA data in children ages 6-11, and continued expansion of our medicines' labels as with our recent approval of KALYDECO for infants as young as 4 months of age."
"As we extend our leadership in CF, we are also advancing a broad pipeline of innovative therapies," continued Dr. Kewalramani. "Our R&D strategy contemplates the high-risk nature of drug development and therefore includes a portfolio approach to each of our disease areas of interest. In AATD, while disappointed by the VX-814 outcome, we look forward to the VX-864 Phase 2 proof-of-concept data in the first half of 2021. Our pipeline spans multiple diseases, and multiple important clinical readouts are expected from now through the end of 2021, each of which we expect will hold transformative potential for patients and further growth for Vertex."
