Background: Real-world, post-approval studies contribute significantly to the evidence surrounding the impact of new treatments, including CFTR modulators, but can be complex undertakings. Elexacaftor-tezacaftor-ivacaftor (ETI) was approved by EMA sooner than expected in August 2020 during a global pandemic. Method: RECOVER, a multi-centre, post-approval study examining the impact of ETI, and conducted in 8 clinical sites in Ireland and the UK over 2 years, examines important outcomes in children and adults prescribed ETI. The study will be conducted in 2 phases in line with ETI approval: 12+ and 6–11. In addition to routine data collected as part of normal care, key RECOVER endpoints include lung clearance index (LCI), spirometry-controlled CT, treatment adherence, GI symptoms, inflammation, liver disease markers, nasal inflammation and nitric oxide metabolism. Results: To date, 96 participants (56% female) out of a target of 137 in people with CFaged 12 and above, have been recruited (predominantly 12–18yrs to date). Recruitment and sample collection has been impacted by the effect of COVID-19 on CF care and CF centre attendance. Key challenges have included: Sputum collection (risks of induction and non-sputum producing participants) and coordination of study activities with limited clinic attendance. Despite this, key baseline data, prior to commencing treatment, has been successfully collected on the majority of participants to date. For subjects recruited to date, 56% have F508del/F508del and 44% F508del/minimum function mutations, mean age is 16.1 years, mean FEV1 83.6% (23–111%), mean LCI 12.2 (6.9–24.3). Recruitment and data collection is ongoing. Conclusion: Despite the impact of accelerated approval and COVID-19, we have been able to proceed with study initiation, recruitment and sample collection. Data from RECOVER and other international post-approval studies is likely to add significantly to our understanding of the impact of ETI on people with CF.

Objectives: As the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic continues, people with cystic fibrosis (CF) have been identified as being a vulnerable group. It is essential that people with CF, their families and their clinical teams have the most up-to-date information on the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on their health. This study aims to characterise the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection in people with CF throughout 2020, identify factors that predict clinical progression of COVID-19, and to describe medium-term follow-up of people who have been infected. Methods: The ‘Cystic Fibrosis Registry Global Harmonization Group’ is a worldwide network of CF Registries that each contributed data on people with CF diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection. In this analysis, we will report on cases contributed from 22 countries diagnosed between 1st February and 13th December 2020. We will present demographic, pre-infection clinical characteristics, symptoms, infection management and outcomes. We will use multivariable logistic regression to assess predictors for hospitalisation with respiratory support and intensive care admission as the outcomes of interest representing clinical progression of COVID-19. Descriptive analysis of medium-term follow-up BMI and FEV1% predicted values will also be undertaken. Results: Results pending. Expected cohort size >1,000, including the 181 previously reported in our paper “The global impact of SARS-CoV-2 in 181 people with cystic fibrosis.” Conclusion: It is expected that the findings of this study will have important implications for shielding advice, clinical care and vaccine prioritisation for people with CF.
