Cystic fibrosis (CF; OMIM number 219700) is one of the most common and life-shortening autosomal recessive disorders in Caucasians, with an incidence of 1 in 2,500 newborns [Welsh et al., 2001]. Its incidence is significantly reduced in Asian populations (1 in 90,000) [Wright and Morton, 1968]. Little is known about the spectrum of CFTR mutations in Asians. Data from the small number of reports indicated that a potentially large pool of Asian CF mutations are novel. The commercially available… Expand
