Cystic Fibrosis

Midwest CEPAC

Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive condition caused by mutations in the CFTR gene. It is relatively rare, occurring in approximately 1 in 2,500 to 3,000 livebirths, but is the most common, lethal genetic disease in Caucasian populations. CF is a progressive disease that affects many organ systems, but most of its morbidity and mortality are associated with its impact on the respiratory system.
