Summary
  • Cystic fibrosis is one of the most common genetic diseases in Caucasian populations. One in 2500 babies is born with the disease, usually to parents who have no idea that they each carry one defective CF gene. This book explores all aspects of CF in clear and readable language, giving basic clinical information on what goes wrong with the organs affected by CF, and covering conventional treatments for CF lung and digestive disease. Practical guidance is offered on how to cope with living with the disease, and clear explanations are provided about treatments available and what each offers the sufferer. Personal accounts from both children and parents will provide family and carers with the understanding needed to care effectively for those with the disease
  • Major advances in our understanding of the genetic basis of CF have occurred since the publication of the second edition of this book, and these are covered in detail in this edition. There is also a section on the potential for gene therapy being used in the future for the long-term treatment of the disease
