A new study led by Dr. Larry Lands was recently published in the Journal of Cystic Fibrosis 2016. The study, led by a team from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and Cystic Fibrosis Canada, reinforces the benefits of newborn screening for Cystic Fibrosis patients. Children with Cystic Fibrosis who are diagnosed through newborn screening are healthier and benefit more from new treatments.
About the study
The study, “The benefits of newborn screening for cystic fibrosis: The Canadian experience” was co-written by D.Y.F. Mak (Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Toronto, Canada), J. Sykes (Keenan Research Centre, Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada), A.L. Stephenson (Keenan Research Centre, Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada), and L.C. Lands (Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, Montreal, Canada).
This work was made possible through the in-kind support from Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
