Cystic fibrosis


Cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder that causes severe lung damage, damage of the digestive system and other organs in the body.

Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. These secreted fluids are normally thin and slippery. But in people with CF, a defective gene causes the secretions to become sticky and thick. Instead of acting as lubricants, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas.

SSPL is taking an initiative in management and treatment modalities of the condition by collaborating with research and development for better drug findings.
