Summary The Cystic Fibrosis Pharmacology group is are interested in the mechanisms of drug action, drug-drug interactions and drug safety of cystic fibrosis drugs during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Project Details

The cystic fibrosis modulators have transformed clinical outcomes for many CF patients by improving survival and general health. However, the much greater prevalence of CF women reaching childbearing age means increasing numbers of women taking these medications face very difficult decisions when it comes to having a family. This study will aid clinicians in prescribing CFTR modulators to pregnant women on how these drugs will transfer across essential barriers during different developmental stages.
