TVLPF “The elixir of life: the pharmacological treatment of cystic fibrosis”

20th September 2016 19.00

George Pickering Education Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headley Way, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU

Fifty years ago a child born with cystic fibrosis would be lucky to live past the age of 5.  Now half of patients with cystic fibrosis in the UK are expected to live past 40 and a baby born with this condition today can expect to live even longer.

This session will look at some of the life prolonging drugs that we are using today in the treatment of cystic fibrosis and the future direction drug development is taking.  It will appeal to pharmacists working in both primary and secondary care as we examine some of the challenges we may all face as this group of patients live longer.
