what is the inheritance of CF?
what is the incidence of CF in the US?
1 in 3200 live births
what is the principle defect in CF?
defect in chloride ion channel transport resulting in high salt concentration in exocrine glands and viscous luminal fluid of respiratory, GI, and reproductive tracts
what is the most common mutation in CF?

what is the CFTR defect in sweat ducts? airway?
