Multicenter Study Of Patient-Reported Gastrointestinal Symptoms In People With Cystic Fibrosis (Galaxy)

Description

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is sponsoring this study to document the digestive symptoms, like poor appetite, abdominal pain, constipation and nausea/bloating, of people 2 years of age and older who have cystic fibrosis. They will use this data to better design future studies to improve these symptoms for people with Cystic Fibrosis.

Overview

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disorder that affects the body’s ability to move salt and fluids in and out of the cells of the lungs, intestines, liver, pancreas, and sweat glands. Digestive symptoms like poor appetite, abdominal pain, constipation and nausea/bloating are very common in people with CF. This study is to better understand what digestive symptoms people with CF have. The information collected from this study will help the researchers design future studies to improve these symptoms.

What we're hoping for

We are hoping to collect information about digestive symptoms, like poor appetite, abdominal pain, constipation and nausea/bloating, to better design future studies to improve these symptoms for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
