ERS Research Seminar: Preventing respiratory sequelae in children diagnosed with cystic fibrosis by newborn screening, Leuven 2007

About
Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.

Background

With the increasing use of newborn screening and the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis in the first weeks of life, researchers have a clear responsibility to develop interventions that will prevent or delay the onset of bronchiectasis that are suitable for use from birth. The Seminar will bring together motivated CF programme directors and leading researchersin order to:

  • describe the earliest pathophysiological manifestations of cystic fibrosis lung disease
  • evaluate key early clinical outcome measures
  • identify critical gaps in knowledge
  • prioritise suitable targets for randomised clinical trials
  • address issues of network management and clinical trials design
