To determine whether pulmonary function in infants with asymptomatic cystic fibrosis is related to genotype, we studied 18 infants with cystic fibrosis identified through neonatal screening and 18 healthy control infants. Infants with cystic fibrosis (mean age, 2.0 months; range, 1.0 to 4.6 months) were identified from June 1990 to September 1991 through a statewide screening program based on elevated immunoreactive trypsinogen concentrations. Pulmonary function testing was done before and… CONTINUE READING
