Cystic Fibrosis (CFTR Gene)


Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes the body to generate thick and sticky mucus that clogs up the lungs. The digestive and the reproductive systems are also affected.

Cystic fibrosis is very common among people of Northern European ancestry.

Cystic fibrosis causes infertility in both men and women. At least 97% of men with cystic fibrosis are infertile.

The cause of the disease is a genetic mutation in the CFTR gene that encodes for the production of a defective protein instead a healthy one.

Dante Lab Cystic Fibrosis Genetic testing will read out the CFTR gene to screen for known mutational genetic variants of well characterized gene sets.
