Cystic fibrosis (CF) was distinguished from celiac disease in 1938. Then, it was a pathologic diagnosis, life expectancy was approximately 6 months, and the autosomal recessive disease was believed to arise from abnormal mucus plugging exocrine ducts. Death often occurred from lung infection. Discovery of the sweat electrolyte defect in 1953 and standardization of the sweat test in 1959 allowed identification of milder cases, and CF was no longer considered only a disorder of mucus. In 1955…

TLDR
It is now appreciated that CF airway disease involves intricate interrelationships among airway surface liquid, mucus clearance, infection, inflammation, repair, and fibrosis.
Pulmonary Disease in Cystic Fibrosis
TLDR
The pathophysiology of CF lung disease is reviewed and current and emerging therapies for this progressive lung disease are described, including small molecule potentiators and correctors that target specific CFTR mutations.
Cystic Fibrosis and Formes Frustes of CFTR-Related Disease
TLDR
It has become increasingly apparent that certain conditions may result from CFTR dysfunction without fulfilling diagnostic criteria for CF, and in some cases this may result in single organ disease for which the term CF (or CFTR)-related disease has been advocated.
Pathology of gastrointestinal organs in a porcine model of cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
Mulus cell hyperplasia and mucus accumulation play prominent roles in early disease in CFTR-/- pigs, and these findings lay the foundation for a better understanding of CF pathogenesis.

TLDR
There is no clear evidence of an advantage for those diagnosed by NBS programmes in terms of the progression of lung disease as measured by lung function, but there is evidence that newborn screening for CF may prevent malnutrition in infants with pancreatic-insufficient CF and may have an impact upon later growth and development.
Perioperative Management of the Adult with Cystic Fibrosis
TLDR
The optimal perioperative management of patients with CF requires an understanding of the relevant pathophysiology and the unique challenges presented by these patients, including special considerations such as liver and lung transplantation and pregnancy.
Pulmonary and Critical Care Updates Update in Cystic Fibrosis 2006
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a complex inherited condition resulting from abnormalities in the gene that codes for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). CFTR, a membrane
The Prognosis of Cystic Fibrosis - A Clinician's Perspective
TLDR
Improved prognosis of Cystic Fibrosis is due essentially to a better care management, and quality of care is the main determinant of CF prognosis.
STUDIES AS A BASIS FOR A POSSIBLE INTRODUCTION OF NEWBORN SCREENING FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS IN SWEDEN
Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-shortening autosomal recessive disease in Caucasians. It is a multi-organ disease that results from mutations in the gene that encodes the CF
Studies as a basis for a possible introduction of newborn screening for cystic fibrosis in Sweden
TLDR
The results shows that newborn screening for CF with an IRT/DNA approach is possible in Sweden and that a majority of parents in Sweden support the inclusion of CF in the newborn screening programme.

TLDR
Of special importance are intestinal obstructive complications (meconium ileus in newborn infants with cystic fibrosis and intestinal obstruction due to fecal accumulation or intussusception in adults).
CYSTIC FIBROSIS OF THE PANCREAS AND ITS RELATION TO CELIAC DISEASE: A CLINICAL AND PATHOLOGIC STUDY
TLDR
The pathology and pathologic physiology of celiac disease remain obscure in spite of the many attempts that have been made to understand them and few cases of either disease in which careful clinical observations have been followed by adequate postmortem examination are revealed.
Immunoreactive trypsin in cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
There is increasing evidence to show that mass newborn screening for CF using the IRT assay is practical and is capable of detecting essentially all CF newborns at a cost comparable to existing screening programs for other disorders such as Hypothyroidism.

TLDR
It is now clear that CFTR genotype alone does not account for the wide diversity in CF pulmonary phenotype and evidence is accumulating that secondary genetic factors separate from the CFTR locus significantly influence the severity of CF lung disease.

TLDR
Virulence factors in Aspergillus that could aggravate these diseases, and particularly immunogenetic factors that could predispose persons to ABPA, were identified and diagnostic criteria that could provide a framework for monitoring were adopted.
Fibrocystic disease of the pancreas, a generalized disease of exocrine glands.
TLDR
Fibrocystic disease is really systemic; it is not limited to the pancreas but involves exocrine glands in many other parts of the body and its importance in the pathogenesis of meconium ileus, chronic pulmonary disease, cirrhosis of the liver, and portal hypertension in children.
Relation between mutations of the cystic fibrosis gene and idiopathic pancreatitis.
TLDR
There was a strong association between mutations in the CFTR gene and pancreatitis, and the abnormal CFTR genotypes in these patients with pancreatitis resemble those associated with male infertility.
OBSTRUCTIVE AZOOSPERMIA AS A DIAGNOSTIC CRITERION FOR THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS SYNDROME
TLDR
It is proposed that cystic fibrosis be diagnosed if the patient has at least two of three major criteria (marked rise in sweat chloride concentration, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pseudomonas infection, and unexplained obstructive azoospermia) or has one major criterion together with one of several minor criteria.
Celiac syndrome; genetics of cystic fibrosis of the pancreas, with a consideration of etiology.
TLDR
The etiology of cystic fibrosis of the pancreas is not only an interesting puzzle in the abstract but a matter of practical importance, since any hope which there may be of decreasing the incidence of the disease depends on an understanding of its cause.
Bronchopulmonary disease in children with cystic fibrosis after early or delayed diagnosis.
TLDR
It appears that respiratory infections and pancreatic status are the dominant factors in pulmonary prognosis in patients with CF who received similar treatment after being assigned to an early diagnosis (screened) or to a standard diagnosis (control) group.
