Cystic Fibrosis - Prognosis

The key to a good prognosis for cystic fibrosis is early detection and treatment. The effectiveness and variety of treatment methods greatly increased during the 1980s and 1990s. About half of all patients living with CF during this time could expect to live past the age of thirty. Researchers predict that a person born in the late 1990s with the disorder can expect to live to the age of forty.
