What Does CFTR Tell Us About Lung Disease?

Volume 4, Issue 12.

In this issue our guest author is Dr. Patrick Sosnay, Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Center. Dr. Sosnay will illustrate how the genetics of CF can be used to make a diagnosis or identify a CF carrier, predict how individuals with a given mutation will do clinically and allow clinicians to select currently available and hopefully future therapies that directly address the defect caused by their individual CFTR mutations.
