Pharmaxis was pleased to host the CEO of Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) Nettie Burke at the company headquarters for a meeting with staff and a tour of our research laboratories and manufacturing facilities.

Pharmaxis developed Bronchitol for the treatment of cystic fibrosis patients and Ms Burke was keen to discuss the clinical development and local manufacturing of the product.

Another area of mutual interest is the fact that the Pharmaxis drug discovery team is investigating potential new therapies for fibrotic diseases.

Ms Burke addressed staff and some members of the board at a morning tea to explain more about the work of CFA.

Pharmaxis staff have initiated fundraising and collected more than $2,000 in the last twelve months to support Cystic Fibrosis Australia – funds which will be used to help people with CF and their families.
