Study Of Body Fluid Samples From People With Cystic Fibrosis To Look At The Body's Response To Infection\ Inflammation


Seeking people with Cystic Fibrosis aged 12 and older for a study of blood, sputum, and/or leftover fluid collected during your bronchoscopy to look at how your body responds to infection or inflammation.


We are collecting the blood, sputum, and/or leftover fluid collected during bronchoscopy of people with Cystic Fibrosis to better understand their body's responses to infection and inflammation to develop a therapy that might prevent infection from inhaled mold.

What we're hoping for
