Brief Summary:
This study is a Phase 2, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CTX-4430 administered once-daily for 48 weeks for treatment of CF.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cystic Fibrosis Drug: CTX-4430 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study is a Phase 2, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CTX-4430 administered once-daily for 48 weeks for treatment of CF. A total of 195 pulmonary CF patients that meet all the inclusion and no exclusion criteria and provide written informed consent will be randomized to receive 50 mg CTX-4430, 100 mg CTX-4430, or placebo in a 1:1:1 ratio. Follow-up visits will be conducted approximately every 4 weeks from Week 4 to Week 52 (4 weeks after completion of treatment).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Difference From Placebo in Absolute Change From Baseline in Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second Percent Predicted (ppFEV1) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    Difference from Placebo in absolute change from Baseline at Week 48 was assessed for FEV1 percent predicted.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Pulmonary Exacerbations Through 48 Weeks [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Rate of protocol-defined pulmonary exacerbations reported through the Week 48/Early Termination visit will be annualized where a year is defined by 52 weeks and will be analyzed using a negative binomial regression.

  2. Hazard Ratio Pulmonary Exacerbation While in the Study [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Hazard Ratio of pulmonary exacerbation versus placebo for all subjects. Pulmonary exacerbations are defined as treatment with oral, inhaled, or intravenous antibiotic(s) for ≥4 of symptoms/signs per the modified Fuchs criteria.

  3. Subjects Without a Pulmonary Exacerbation While in the Study [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Subjects who did not experience a protocol-defined pulmonary exacerbation during the study

  4. Relative Change (Percent Change) From Baseline in ppFEV1 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    Percent change from Baseline for ppFEV1 at 48 weeks was assessed.

  5. Change From Baseline at 48 Weeks for Forced Vital Capacity Percent Predicted (FVC) and FEF25-75% (Forced Expiratory Flow During the Middle Half of the Forced Vital Capacity) Percent Predicted [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
  6. Change From Baseline for Specified Biomarkers [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    Results were only calculated in subjects who had a verifiable result at the Baseline and Week 48 visits.

  7. Change From Baseline for C-reactive Protein (Hs-CRP) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 48 ]
    Results were only calculated in subjects who had a verifiable result at the Baseline and Week 48 visits.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of Pulmonary Exacerbation Per Year for Participants With ppFEV1 >75 at Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Rate of protocol-defined pulmonary exacerbations reported through the Week 48/Early Termination visit will be annualized where a year is defined by 52 weeks and will be analyzed using a negative binomial regression.

  2. Hazard Ratio Pulmonary Exacerbation for Participants With ppFEV1 >75 at Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Hazard ratio of pulmonary exacerbation versus placebo for all subjects

  3. Subjects Without a Pulmonary Exacerbation by Participants With ppFEV1 >75 at Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Subjects who did not experience a protocol-defined pulmonary exacerbation during the study.

  4. Number of Pulmonary Exacerbation by Subjects if Taking CFTR-Modulator Therapy at Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Rate of protocol-defined pulmonary exacerbations reported through the Week 48/Early Termination visit will be annualized where a year is defined by 52 weeks and will be analyzed using a negative binomial regression.

  5. Hazard Ratio Pulmonary Exacerbation by Subjects if Taking CFTR-Modulator Therapy at Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Hazard Ratio pulmonary exacerbation versus placebo for all subjects taking CFTR-modulating therapy at Baseline

  6. Subjects Without a Pulmonary Exacerbation by Subjects if Taking CFTR-Modulator Therapy at Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Subjects who did not experience a protocol-defined pulmonary exacerbation during the study.
