MVW Modulator Formulation Softgels are specifically formulated to supplement the dietary needs of individuals with A, D, E and K who are prescribed modulator therapy and are receiving a CF-specific multivitamin, and have elevated serum vitamin levels of A, E or D.
MVW Modulator Formulation Softgels include lower levels of preformed vitamin A (retinyl palmitate), while offering higher levels of pro-vitamin A (beta carotene). This provides a more individualized and regulated approach to achieving target serum retinol levels, while addressing the reduced conversion efficiency of beta carotene that is seen due to genetic variation in the BCMO1 gene.
MVW Modulator Formulation Softgels contain the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, plus a higher amount of vitamin C, and zinc. The product is rich in antioxidants due to the beta-carotene, ascorbic acid, alpha-tocopherol, and zinc content; and are gluten and soy free.
MVW Modulator Formulation Softgels were developed to meet or exceed the daily fat-soluble supplemental recommendations as outlined in the 2002 Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Consensus Statement, the recommendations by the 2010 CF Foundation’s September multispecialty ad hoc committee recommendations for age-specific step increases in Vitamins D3, and Vitamin K as described in the 2011 Endocrine Society Clinical Practice Guidelines, and recent studies; and offers both clinically studied and patient proven absorption technologies; combined with new and novel approaches to better support absorption through the addition of a solubilizer and a bile fluid stimulator.

How are local pharmacists getting MVW Complete Formulation products through their wholesalers?
The Order Entry Numbers for MVW Nutritional Multivitamins – chewables, standard softgels, chewables and softgels with higher D, and drops are reflected in the chart below:
- Advise the pharmacist that the three major wholesalers – McKesson, ABC and Cardinal – have assigned order entry numbers for products that may be ordered through their respective wholesale distribution centers.
- The pharmacist should enter the number in their order entry system. If their local distribution center has already stocked the desired product, the order will process and product will arrive at to the pharmacist with the next shipment from the wholesaler – normally one to two days.
- If the local distribution center has never stocked the product, the order entry system will display one of two error messages: product discontinued, manufacturer backorder. Should the pharmacist get either of these two messages, they must CALL their local distribution center, provide the item number, and request that they stock the product. Distributors call this “activating an item” or “bringing the item in”. NOTE: Only an item with an assigned order entry can be activated at the local distribution center level in this manner.
- For products without an item number, the local distribution center must call their corporate office, and request that corporate assign an item number.
- If the pharmacist is (i) less than co-operative, or (ii) has questions, please call our toll-free number – (855) CF-MULTI – and we be happy to assist in this process.
