Anti-inflammatory therapy is a mainstay of CF treatment. However, new & more effective anti-inflammatories are needed. In 2014, the CFF sponsored a series of workshops to identify & address critical questions related to the development of new anti-inflammatory agents. In this symposium, the recommendations from the workshop will be reviewed & the impact they may have on future drug development.
Identify the most promising targets for anti-inflammatory therapy.
Discuss the importance & limitations of pre-clinical animal models in anti-inflammatory drug development.
Describe the various study designs utilized in anti-inflammatory clinical trials.
