Description
Cystic fibrosis is one of the most common genetic diseases in Caucasian populations. One in 2500 babies are born with the disease, usually to parents who have no idea that they each carry one defective CF gene. The disease affects the respiratory and digestive systems, and despite majorimprovements in treatment over the last 20 years, CF is usually lethal before the third decade of life. Written for sufferers, their families, and all who need to care for those affected, this book provides clear information about all aspects of the disease from basic clinical information about whatis going wrong with the organs affected to conventional treatments for CF lung and digestive disease. The practical guidance offered will prove invaluable for all sufferers and those around them who want to know how best to care for them. This third edition includes new information about the geneticbasis of CF, discovered since the publication of the previous edition, and also incorporates a section on the potential for gene therapy being used in the future for the long term treatment of the disease.
