Cystic Fibrosis Patient Registry

Content

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Patient Registry is used to track the health of people with CF in the United States. This information allows us and CF researchers to identify trends, design clinical trials for new therapies, and uncover effective treatments.

During your first visit to our center, we will ask for your consent to participate in the registry. Your participation provides data for healthcare improvement and research while helping create the most precise picture of the current state of CF care.

Your CF data, including genetics, sweat test results, recent sputum culture, and visit history, is graphed and can be given to you at every visit. If you have questions, please ask your doctor or nurse to review the data with you.
