Published Date : Dec 2023
Author : Shruti Gaikwad

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic, lifelong disease that primarily affects the respiratory and digestive systems. It is caused by a mutation in the CFTR gene, which leads to the production of thick and sticky mucus in various organs of the body. This mucus can clog airways in the lungs and obstruct the normal function of the pancreas and other organs.
