In healthy lungs, epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) is regulated by short, palate, lung, and nasal clone 1 (SPLUNC1). In cystic fibrosis (CF), ENaC is hyperactivated in part due to a loss of SPLUNC1 function. We have developed SPX-101 to replace the lost function of SPLUNC1 in the CF lung.

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) have emerged as an important pathogen in cystic fibrosis (CF). Early detection and treatment of NTM can preserve lung function and maintain good lung health. Many ch...
To determine the antimicrobial activity of ALX-009, a combination of bovine lactoferrin and hypothiocyanite, in sputum against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc), key pathog...
Research to understand the contribution of macrophages to non-resolving airway inflammation in cystic fibrosis (CF) and other chronic suppurative airways diseases has been hindered by a lack of method...
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited recessive disorder of chloride transport that is characterised by recurrent and persistent pulmonary infections from resistant organisms that result in lung function de...
In this trial, various factors that may influence the antibiotic concentrations measured in the sputum of cystic fibrosis patients are studied. A first factor is aerosol use. As cystic fi...
The objective of this study is to compare the lower airways inflammatory response to infection/pulmonary exacerbation among children known to have Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) with chi...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether Biaxin (clarithromycin) improves sputum abnormalities, lung function, and overall feeling of well-being in people with cystic fibrosis (CF)...
The aim of this pilot study is to demonstrate the feasibility of viral biomolecular diagnosis in sputum compared to nasopharyngeal swab in cystic fibrosis acute respiratory infection.
The long-term goal of this project is to examine the effects of cystic fibrosis (CF) and cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) on brain structure and function
An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)
A strain of mice widely studied as a model for cystic fibrosis. These mice are generated from embryonic stem cells in which the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator) gene is inactivated by gene targeting. As a result, all mice have one copy of this altered gene in all their tissues. Mice homozygous for the disrupted gene exhibit many features common to young cystic fibrosis patients, including failure to thrive, meconium ileus, and alteration of mucous and serous glands.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.
A species of STENOTROPHOMONAS, formerly called Xanthomonas maltophilia, which reduces nitrate. It is a cause of hospital-acquired ocular and lung infections, especially in those patients with cystic fibrosis and those who are immunosuppressed.
Affecting over 8,500 people in the UK, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening inherited diseases. Around half of the CF population can expect to live over 38 years, although improvements in treatments mean a baby born ...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
