Because of the occurrence of frequent infections of the lungs and upper respiratory tract, as well as the liver.
Aaron Jaffe, an employee of Harvard University, notes that this dangerous disease should be treated with an increase in CFTR activity due to a greater number of pulmonary ionocytes. In addition, the discovery of new cells will allow the development of methods for genetic correction of mutations.
