29th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

S16: GMS: How Do CF Genetics & Clinical Practice Interface?

Oct 10, 2015 2:30pm ‐ Oct 10, 2015 4:20pm

Standard: $49.99

Description

Speakers in this session will describe the characterization of genetic variants at the CFTR locus & discuss the impact of genetic variants in other genes (genetic modifiers) on CF. We will discuss ways in which CFTR & genetic modifier information can be incorporated into clinical management at the time of CF diagnosis & through childhood & adulthood.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to best annotate whether a mutation in CFTR causes CF or is a neutral variant.
  2. Identify how & which genes other than CFTR can affect CF & its complications.
  3. Discuss what genetic information about CFTR & other genes can add to the clinical care for people with CF at the time of CF diagnosis & throughout childhood & adulthood.
