For some years, the investigators observe an increase of the arisen of diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients However, this diabetes may be reversible. The investigators speak about " Cystic fibrosis related diabetes.". The objective of this project, is to know better what facilitates the appearance and the reversibility of the diabetes, such as the genetic mutations, the respiratory state and the lung infections. Theses knowledges should allow to adapt the screening of diabetes, and its treatment, for the patients affected by cystic fibrosis.

This study is a multicenter, prospective cohort study of patients diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, the clinical information of recruited patients, including clinical manifestations, lung fu...

This research is being done to find the genes and other factors that are responsible for differences among persons with cystic fibrosis. We are particularly interested in the factors that...
The incidence of cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) has risen significantly as patients' survival improves. Early diagnosis of CFRD is crucial to prevent the unnecessary deterioration...

Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is the most frequent extrapulmonary complication of cystic fibrosis (CF).
The Swiss Cystic Fibrosis Infant Lung Development (SCILD) cohort is a prospective birth cohort study investigating the initiating events of cystic fibrosis lung disease during infancy, and their influ...
Cystic fibrosis (CF)-related diabetes (CFRD) is thought to result from beta-cell injury due in part to pancreas exocrine damage and lipofibrosis. CFRD pancreata exhibit reduced islet density and alter...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate hearing impairment in pediatric patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).
Pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) disease represents a significant threat to cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, with an estimated annual prevalence of 12%. Prior studies report an increasing an...
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)
Study subjects in COHORT STUDIES whose outcomes are unknown e.g., because they could not or did not wish to attend follow-up visits.(from Dictionary of Epidemiology, 5th ed.)
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.
Variation in health status arising from different causal factors to which each birth cohort in a population is exposed as environment and society change.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
