The present invention relates to the use of an angular psoralen, trimethylangelicin (4,6,4 '-trime thy langelicin - TMA), a molecule able to correct the intracellular localisation of the membrane protein called CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator) carrying the F508del CFTR mutation, which is altered in a sub-group of patients suffering from cystic fibrosis. Said molecule is proposed for the preparation of a medicament for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) in the sub-group of patients characterised by the F508del mutation of the CFTR gene.

Abstract

The present invention relates to the use of an angular psoralen, trimethylangelicin (4,6,4 '-trime thy langelicin - TMA), a molecule able to correct the intracellular localisation of the membrane protein called CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator) carrying the F508del CFTR mutation, which is altered in a sub-group of patients suffering from cystic fibrosis. Said molecule is proposed for the preparation of a medicament for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) in the sub-group of patients characterised by the F508del mutation of the CFTR gene.
