In 2015, Pierre-Régis Burgel and colleagues presented a study in the European Respiratory Journal (ERJ) that predicted a 50% increase in cystic fibrosis patients by 2025 in Western Europe. This corresponded to 20% increase in children and a 75% increase in adults. In a follow-up report recently published in the August issue of the ERJ, the authors suggest that this increase may be even higher. Read the latest study here or visit to access the online ERJ.
