Professor Stefan Oscarson's SCCB Research Team Identify Leading Factors in the Treatment of Cystic Fybrosis

A team led by UC San Francisco (UCSF) Professor of medicine John Fahy, MD, has discovered why mucus in the lungs of people with cystic fibrosis (CF) is thick, sticky and difficult to cough up, leaving these patients more vulnerable to lung infection. The research, a collaborative effort between UCSF, University College Dublin (Professor Stefan Oscarson and Professor Stephen D. Carrington) and the Cleveland Clinic, in Ohio, has implications for other lung conditions characterised by thickened mucus, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and asthma.
