Background: The CFTR gene is responsible for the autosomal recessive disease Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and CFTR-related disorders (CFTR-RD). More than 2000 variants have been reported. However, the CFTR genotype remains incomplete (with one or none disease-causing variants) in 1% of CF typical cases and even more in CFTR-RD.Aims and Objectives: To find the second disease causing-variant in unsolved cases of CF and CFTR-RD with new methods and assess their biological impact.Methods: We looked for deep intronic variants by studying the whole CFTR locus by Next Generation Sequencing. Impact of variants on splicing was confirmed by...

The objective of the present survey is to list the major plants used in Congolese traditional folk medicine for the treatment of oxidative stress-related diseases as well as to review the phytogeographical distribution of these plants, their natural habitats, plant parts used, routes of administration, and administered doses. Several methods have been used to fulfil the aim of the study: an ethnobotanical survey, observation of the practices of traditional healers, and bibliographical research focused on the ethnobotany and antioxidant power of sub-Saharan African medicinal plants. From a questionnaire, a guided semi-struc...
