Is There a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis?

Q:
Is there a cure for cystic fibrosis?

A:
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease. It causes secretions, such as mucus and digestive juices, in the body to become thick and sticky. Then the secretions may block tubes, ducts and passageways throughout the body, especially in the lungs and pancreas.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for cystic fibrosis, but some treatment, such as medications, chest physical therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation or surgery, can help ease symptoms and reduce the risk of exacerbations.
