Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:"In the late 1930s, cystic fibrosis didn't even have a name. Canada first joined the battle against cystic fibrosis in the late 1950s, with a historic meeting of concerned and anxious parents. The months that followed were hectic, but productive. By the early 1960s the original Board of Directors had drafted by-laws for the Foundation and its chapters, and had moved to create a strong medical committee. At first they met with obstacles for obtaining federal status. But their persistence paid off, and on July 15, 1960, the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was incorporated by Federal Letters Patent."

Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis & Genetic Disorders Review Group:"The Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis & Genetic Disorders Review Group comprises an international network of health care professionals, researchers and consumers preparing, maintaining, and disseminating systematic reviews of randomised control trials in the treatment of cystic fibrosis and other genetic disorders. Activities of the Group are co-ordinated by its Editorial Base, located within the Department of Child Health, University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. We very much welcome interest from new consumers, referees and potential reviewers."


Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:"Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections. These thick secretions also obstruct the pancreas, preventing digestive enzymes from reaching the intestines to help break down and absorb food."
