Elexacaftor is a medication that acts as cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) corrector.[1]

It is available in a single pill with ivacaftor and tezacaftor; the fixed-dose combination, elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor (brand name Trikafta), is used to treat people with cystic fibrosis who are homozygous for the f508del mutation.[1][2] This combination was approved for medical use in the United States in 2019.[1][3][4]

The fixed-dose combination elexacaftor/tezacaftor/ivacaftor (Kaftrio) was approved for medical use in the European Union in August 2020, for the treatment of cystic fibrosis.[5][6]
