The aim of this study was to evaluate the hypothesis that a deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) model could facilitate automated Brasfield scoring of chest radiographs (CXRs) for patients with cy...
Impaired phagocytosis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found in isolated monocytes of peripheral blood of cystic fibrosis patients, but not in their neutrophils, as reported some years ago. In the presen...
Nutritional status affects pulmonary function in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients and can be monitored by using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). BIA measurements are commonly performed in the fast...
Modulation of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein improves clinical outcomes in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and specific CFTR genetic mutations. It remains un...
The clinical effects of Aspergillus fumigatus in the cystic fibrosis (CF) airway, with the exception of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, is unclear.
This is an observational study of people with severe cystic fibrosis that are eligible for Vertex's triple combination therapy through its expanded access. Pulmonary health, intestinal hea...
This is a Phase 2, randomized, double blind, placebo and active-controlled, parallel group, multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety and tolerability of VX-152 in Triple Combinati...
This study will evaluate the long-term safety, tolerability, efficacy, and pharmacodynamics of elexacaftor (ELX, VX-445) in triple combination (TC) with tezacaftor (TEZ) and ivacaftor (IVA...
This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, tolerability, efficacy, and pharmacodynamic effect of VX-445, tezacaftor (TEZ), and ivacaftor (IVA) when dosed in triple combina...
This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, tolerability, efficacy, and pharmacodynamic effect of VX-659, tezacaftor (TEZ), and ivacaftor (IVA) when dosed in triple combina...
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.
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 drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
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.
