Research continues to advance
Research into cystic fibrosis continues to make enormous strides towards better understanding the condition and finding a cure. Although much research has been accomplished in recent years, it sometimes takes scientists a bit longer to adapt this information into tangible results for patient treatment. Thankfully, the medical field is full of innovators. Whether it’s using an extendable stent to replace a young girl’s blood vessel, or taking advantage of emerging technology to curb the emotional and mental side effects of living with cystic fibrosis, there are a lot of different ways to cope with cystic fibrosis using the tools we find around us every day.
