Cystic fibrosis gene cure closer

I just read this article about gene therapy US researchers are working on.The successful development of the gene therapy could cure CF. In the UK they are planning to start a large scale clinical trial this year.The hope is this gene therapy that replaces the defective CF gene which disables or destroys a protein known as CFTR will result in a cure.

I hope that the clinical trials prove to be successful. There is not a day that goes by that I don't wish i could just make it all better for my Breezy and all the other CFers.
