About Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that causes progressive damage to the respiratory system and chronic digestive system problems but can involve multiple organ systems of the body. Mutations in the cystic fibrosis trans-membrane regulator protein (CFTR) impacts the body’s ability to move sodium, chloride and water in and out of cells, leading to unusually thick and sticky mucus in many tissues of the body including the airways, pancreatic ducts, sweat ducts, sinuses and bowels. Cystic fibrosis affects more than 30,000 people in the U.S., although there are approximately 10-12 million carriers of the CFTR mutation in the U.S., the disease affects males and females equally. Other names for this condition include:CF, cystic fibrosis of pancreas, fibrocystic disease of pancreas and mucoviscidosis.
