What is cystic fibrosis?

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening inherited disease in Europe. Sticky mucus blocks the respiratory and digestive systems. CF is yet an incurable disease. But early diagnosis, regular follow-up by a multidisciplinary team in a specialized CF clinic, and correct, timely treatment of symptoms can prolong and save lives and improve the quality of life.

A new era of drugs, targeting the basic defect in the cells of people with CF, is arising and will have a big impact on the lives of people with CF if they get access to these drugs.
