Severe Respiratory Diseases
Severe respiratory diseases: from Cystic Fibrosis to bronchiectases
Around 100,000 people worldwide suffer from Cystic Fibrosis, the most common severe genetic disease. This multi-organ disease mainly affects the lungs, which are hit by chronic infections and inflammations that cause their progressive deterioration. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is another chronic and progressive respiratory disorder, the main cause of which is exposure (active or passive) to tobacco smoke.
