Progress in respiratory research; v.34
This volume is the first overview of the entire field of cystic fibrosis and reflects new understandings about the disease and its pathophysiology. The text encompasses basic molecular and cellular biology as well as the recent multisystem, multidisciplinary advances in the clinical care of patients. As a result of the emphasis on new developments, most of the references are less than five years old. The wide range of topics covered include the CFTR gene; research in pseudomonas aeruginosa; advanced disease management; advances in transplant medicine; and diabetes in cystic fibrosis. A concluding paper addresses future trends and possible problems in diagnosis, management, research and treatment.
