What Types of New Therapies are Available for Cystic Fibrosis?
Discussion Cystic fibrosis (CF) was identified in 1938 by Dr. Dorothy Andersen who described 49 patients with pancreatic insufficiency. Since that time significant achievements in the knowledge about the disease and treatments for patients have changed the mortality from a few months to patients living into middle adulthood or even later. Quality of life for patients and their families and friends has also markedly improved. CF is the classic Mendelian autosomal recessive genetic disorder which is a worldwide disorder but affects people of north European ancestry more often where the main mutation is more common. There are...

Unforeseen links to chronic pancreatitis found in cancer-related signals
(Osaka University) Researchers from Osaka University have demonstrated that two signaling pathways, the PI3K and the Hippo pathways earlier implicated in the development of pancreatic cancer, are responsible for the development and progression of chronic pancreatitis. Experiments in animal models, corroboration by laboratory evidence, and studies of human diseased tissue suggest that targeting pathologically upregulated Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) may be a useful therapeutic strategy against this disease.
