MRSA transmission
If a CF patient is culturing MRSA, how high is the risk of transmitting MRSA to a partner(without cf) through kissing and sexual activity?
Risk of spreading MRSA
Hi, I've been diagnosed culturing MRSA and I want to ask about the risk of transmitting it to my girlfriend (non cf) through kissing and other intimate contact. Shall I stop those things or it's not so possible for healthy non cf people to get MRSA in their lungs? What shall I pay attention to to prevent transmitting MRSA to her? Thanks a lot!
CF Diagnosis
Has a CF diagnosis from the heel prick test ever been wrong?Both parents did have gene mutations and same faulty genes detected in child. A sweat test has never been carried out and from 3 weeks all the usual preventative treatment has been done. To date 4 years down the line nothing has ever been cultured or no other symptoms of CF appeared. I do appreciate it is highly unlikely the diagnosis is not correct and symptoms can develop later in life but this is just something I would like to know. A sweat test is going to be done soon.
p.R709X heterozygous
Hi - does being heterozygous with p.R709X confer CF - there are no other mutations, deletions, duplications per Ambry Genetic CF amplication and del/dup sequencing results? Kindly advise.
p.R709X heterozygous
Results from gene sequencing and amplification for our child showed one mutation: p.R709X. No other mutations, or variants of unknown significance or gross deletions or duplications were noted. What phenotypic expression does the heterozygosity for p.R709X bring about? Is my child a carrier. Thank you in advance fo your help. Regards, Sep 5, 2012

CF related Liver disease, Lycopene and Vitamin E
Dear Expert, I'm a father to a 7years old boy with CF. Recently, a CF related Liver disease was diagnosed (by ultrasound and elevated liver enzymes in the blood). It was also discovered that his Vitamin E levels is higher than normal 33mg/L. Can the high level of Vitamin E affect the Liver disease (for good or for bad)? In addition he has being received a daily dose of 15mg of lycopene. Can the lycopene affect the liver disease? After stopping the lycopene administration a moderate decease in the liver enzymes in the blood was monitored. Thank you in advance.
