29th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

W12: APP&D: Mobilizing CF Mucus

Oct 9, 2015 2:00pm ‐ Oct 9, 2015 3:45pm

Standard: $49.99

Description

This session will provide a state-of-the art assessment of factors affecting mucus viscoelasticity & mucus clearance in in vitro & in vivo models of CF. These presentations will focus on the relationship between defective ion transport, fluid secretion & mucus biophysical properties, as well as methods for evaluating mucus transport & potentially normalizing mucus in a CF environment.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain effects of ion composition on biophysical properties of mucus.
  2. Describe CF & normal mucus secretion and transport.
  3. Identify pharmacological strategies to promote mucus clearance.
