Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (VRTX) has expanded its reimbursement agreement with NHS England for the company's cystic fibrosis medicines to include KAFTRIO, in a combination regimen with KALYDECO 150 mg. The expanded agreement includes reimbursed access to Vertex's currently licensed medicines - KALYDECO, ORKAMBI and SYMKEVI, as well as the triple combination therapy if approved.
