CFTR correctors, a therapy for cystic fibrosis targeted at specific mutations
Cystic fibrosis is a common inherited condition, particularly affecting people from a northern European background.   It's caused by various mutations of the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator gene, shortened to "CFTR".  A new Cochrane Review from August 2018 examines a class of drug that aims to correct the basic defect for people with CF with a specific mutation, and we asked lead author, Kev in Southern from the University of Liverpool in the UK, to tell us what they found.

The autogenic drainage breathing technique for helping people with cystic fibrosis to clear mucus from their airways Primary tabs
More than 100 Cochrane Reviews of interventions for people with cystic fibrosis are now underway, with nearly ninety published in full. In October 2017, this list was added to with a review of the effects of a breathing technique called autogenic drainage. We asked the lead author, Pamela McCormack from Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool in the UK, to tell us what they found. (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)

Different ways of giving antibiotics to eradicate Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in people with cystic fibrosis
People with cystic fibrosis are particularly susceptible to chest infections, some of which can become chronic. It ’s important, therefore to try to find treatments for these infections and an updated Cochrane Review from the Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group examines the evidence for the use of antibiotics. Alan Smyth, a Coordinating Editor for the Group, based in University of Nottingham i n the UK, is one of the authors of this April 2017 review update. He tells us more in this podcast.

The use of vibrating devices to help people with cystic fibrosis clear their airways of mucus
There are now more than 80 full Cochrane Reviews of a wide variety of interventions for people with cystic fibrosis. In May 2017, one of these was updated by Lisa Morrison and Stephanie Milroy from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow in Scotland to bring together the latest evidence on the effects of oscillating devices.

Ataluren and similar compounds (specific therapies for premature termination codon class I mutations) for cystic fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition, associated with mutation of a specific gene involved in the movement of salt across cells. One of the proposed treatments that targets a particular type of this mutation is a drug called Ataluren, which was the subject of a new Cochrane Review in January 2017. One of the authors, Kevin Southern from the Department of Women's and Children's Health at the University of Liverpool in the UK, describes the available evidence in this podcast.
