Cystic Fibrosis Program (Adult)

Improved treatment for children with cystic fibrosis (CF) and better diagnostic testing for adults with unusual expressions of CF have steadily increased the number of adults who need specialized care for this disease. More than half of all patients with CF are now 18 years of age or older. 

As the largest adult cystic fibrosis center in the United States, National Jewish Health provides ongoing treatment for hundreds of adults with this life-long disease. We also have ongoing clinical trials that evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new CF therapies and are part of the Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network (TDN).
