CF= genetic disorder that affects multiple organs.
mucus blocks the passageways of the pancreas and prevents pancreatic digestive juices from entering the intestines
without the juices, the intestine cant absorb fats and proteins completely, so nutrients leave the body rather than help the body.
a new therapy, called protein repair therapy, aims to repair the defective CFTR
This protein possesses two ATP-hydrolyzing domains, which allows the protein to use energy in the form of ATP
This bacteria is the most common cause of chronic and fatal lung infections for people with CF
in cystic fibrosis, these secretions become really thick and can clog up vital areas of the body causing inflammation, obstruction and infection
