The proprietary triple combination includes a novel cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) amplifier, third generation corrector, and potentiator, known as PTI-428, PTI-801, and PTI-808, respectively.

Combinations of CFTR Modulators Hold the Promise of Improving Treatment Efficacy for Different Segments of CF Population

Meenu Chhabra, President, and CEO of Proteostasis Therapeutics stated that fast track designation, together with other recent designations from regulators and CF organizations following review of the Company's results with PTI-428, PTI-801, and PTI-808, is recognition of the potential of these programs in this disease. Meenu added that combinations of CFTR modulators hold the promise of improving treatment efficacy for different segments of the CF population, including F508del heterozygotes and F508del homozygotes, where patients have limited access to treatment, are underserved by existing treatments or see a declining benefit in lung function over time.

The news report suggests that post announcement of the news, shares of the Company surge in the pre-market trading.

The study is designed to investigate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of the co-administration of PTI's CFTR modulators, PTI-428, PTI-801, and PTI-808, and will also assess lung function (FEV). Proteostasis Therapeutics plans to initiate the dosing of CF patients in first half of 2018.

About Cystic Fibrosis

CF is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. Long-term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of frequent lung infections. Other signs and symptoms of CF may include sinus infections, poor growth, fatty stool, clubbing of the fingers and toes, and infertility in most males. Different people may have different degrees of symptoms. There is no known cure for CF.

All three drug candidates were discovered internally at the Company and are designed to act synergistically through complementary mechanisms of action which address specific dysfunctions of the CFTR protein, the underlying cause of the disease.
