    Amazing Kalydeco

    [Kalydeco helps about 4 percent of the people with a certain mutation of cystic fibrosis, and the drug probably will be useful for 16 percent of CF patients over the next couple of years, said Dr. Robert Beall, president and CEO of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Trials are under way that combine Kalydeco and another drug to see if the combination could help the majority of those with CF, he said.]

In the two years he has been on the pills, she said, he has grown 10 inches, gained 20 to 30 pounds and "his breathing tests have just shot through the roof," she said.]
