Cystic Fibrosis More than just mucus

Cystic FibrosisBest Practices

Diane Hanfelt-Goade MDDirector, Adult CF Center

128 year-old gentleman with cystic fibrosis, genotype F508 homozygousDiagnosed as an infant with meconium ileusFollowed every 3 months in CF clinicColonization with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureusHistory of staph schleiferi and aspergillus tares. Called with increasing cough and SOB for three weeks

Case presentation

Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) geneThe CFTR gene is located on the long arm of chromosome 7.There are 1522 mutations in CFTR listed on the mutation database ( most common mutation is F508-70% CF alleles in caucasians.1Causes loss of aa phenylalanine at position 508 in protein Gibson, RL, Burns, JL, and Ramsey, BW.

Most common life-shortening recessive genetic disease in Caucasians 1:3,500 newborns in the US

1 in 10,500 Native Americans

1 in 11,500 Hispanics

1 in 14,000 to 17,000 African Americans

1 in 25,500 Asians http://www.cff.orgBurden of CF

About 30,000 people affected in United States

>10,000,000 people carriers of mutant CFTR

80% cases diagnosed by age 3

Almost 10% diagnosed 18 yearsatypical disease

UNM Adult care center has approx 66 patientsBurden of CF (continued)

Overall trend is improved survival

Female survival worse than male between 2-20 years of age1

35% of patients are older than 18 years of age2

Median survival 36.8 years31930s life expectancy was about 6 months2

The impact of usual adult diseases in CF is virtually unknown
