Clarification plant in the neighbourhood
Hello, does a clarification plant in the neighbourhood (about 500m linear distance) represent a health risk in case of CF? Can bacteria be transmitted only via direct contact and aerosols or also via smell? Many thanks in advance

fetus with large nuchal translucency
I terminated my pregnancy at 24th week of gestation because the fetus developed hydropsy and pericardiac fluid. I have a first and second cousin with CF. My parents come from the same village, as well as the parents of my cousins. I was tested for 95% of CF mutations and my husband for 90% with negative results. The fetus was tested for 65% of CF mutations with negative results and its molecular karyotype is normal as well. It had a large nuchal translucency from the start (7.6 mm) with no other symptom. Can you tell me the symptoms it would present if it suffered from CF?

Cystic Fibrosis
After the genetic testing for CF mutations my wife was found to be a carrier of the c.476T>C, L159S exon 4 mutation. She is now 16 weeks pregnant. I am being tested for the 95% of CF mutations. In case I am a carrier of a CF mutation, what chances does the fetus have to suffer from CF and what kind of symptoms will it have? If it is a boy, is it certain that he will have azoospermia? What are the chances?

Your opinion
I have a son 20 months old who is 81 cm tall and weighs 9.5 kg. Apart from his small statute, he does not have any of the CF symptoms I have read about. He got ill once and he coughed, but he got over it in two days easily. His stool is normal, his sweat is not salty. Sometimes he eats well, others not so well, but he does not drink much milk, 200 ml/day. We did various tests but all were normal. When I was pregnant I did an amniocentesis and was tested for the common CF mutations with negative results. Our paediatrician suggested we do a sweat test just to be certain. Do you believe that it is possible for my boy to have CF? Thank you for your time!

Colloidal silver
Hello, the last answer on colloidal silver is from 2014. Is there any new research / knowledge concerning the bacterial and viral fight or other usage in case of CF? Many thanks for information.

Genetic testing
Our doctor suggested to me and my husband to get tested for 87% of CF mutations. If one of us is proved to be a carrier, then the test should be repeated covering 98% of the CF mutations. My question is if this kind of testing is safe, or should at least one of us be tested for 98% of the CF mutations.

Organoid usage in Switzerland
I want to know if it is possible in Switzerland to test new substances/drugs mutation-specifically with organoids (mini-gut of stem cells)! According to Hans Clevers biotechnology Hubrecht institute with that substances can be tested for seldom mutations. I mean study substances for CF patients Regards from Switzerland (CF patient, 40)

Edible mould on salami
Often one can find on Italian or French salami a powdered coating with edible mould on the outer skin. Is this kind of mould dangerous for CF patients? Many thanks and best regards, S.O.

Carrier or patient?
My son is 10 months old, weighs 8 kg and is 75 cm tall. He suffered from dehydration last summer and we were hospitilised. We discovered that he carries the del508 mutation. We did two sweat tests at Hippokation Hospital and both were negative (values 22 and 23). We were tested for 85% of CF mutations and another mutation was traced. We were asked to have an X-ray and an ultrasound. Is it possible for my son to suffer from CF, since both sweat tests were negative, or is he simply a carrier? His stool is well formed with a normal smell.
