    Background: Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a monogenic disease with complex expression because of the action of genetic and environmental factors. We investigated whether the ACE gene D/I polymorphism is associated with severity of CF. Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed, from 2009 to 2011,...

    Background: The pulmonary phenotype in cystic fibrosis (CF) is variable; thus, environmental and genetic factors likely contribute to clinical heterogeneity. We hypothesized that genetically determined ABO histo-blood group antigen (ABH) differences in glycosylation may lead to differences in...

    The article discusses a study which investigated the use of gene therapy in the treatment of cystic fibrosis. The study suggested that liposome-mediated cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene transfer may be a practical option for initial studies of gene transfer into cystic...

    The article presents a medical research in Great Britain on reducing neutrophils in cystic fibrosis. It is said that the accumulation of neutrophils and high concentrations of the chemokine interleukin-8 (IL-8) in the airways is a characteristic feature of chronic lung diseases. However, further...

    The severity of cystic fibrosis (CF) pulmonary disease is not directly related to CFTR genotype but depends upon several parameters, including neutrophil-dominated inflammation. Identification of agents modulating inflammation constitutes a relevant goal. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is involved in...

    Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal disease with characteristics of a complex disease. Understanding ADRA2A polymorphisms are important to elucidate clinical variability that is encountered in inflammatory diseases including CF, for which diabetes is an important comorbidity beyond...

    Background: Tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) play a major role in extracellular matrix turnover in the lung. However, in chronic lung disorders such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and pigeon breeders' disease (PBD), TIMPs may promote an adverse non-degradative environment....

    The clinical course of cystic fibrosis (CF) varies between patients bearing identical CFTR mutations, suggesting the involvement of modifier genes. We assessed the association of lung disease severity with the variant AGER -429 T/C, coding for RAGE, a pro-inflammatory protein, in CF patients...

    Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common genetic disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance among Caucasian populations. So far, more than 1950 different mutations were identified in cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene. CFTR gene has 27 exons. The type...
