Cystic Fibrosis has seen dramatic advances in treatment since the last edition, including targeted cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein modulators for most CFTR gene abnormalities. This new fifth edition is an update and expansion of the rapid clinical and scientific advances in improving prognosis, and the impact of COVID-19, all of which has transformed conventional models of care. It covers basic science, such as how detailed understanding of the biology of the CFTR gene and protein has led to novel and beneficial therapies, as well as all aspects of clinical management in high-, middle- and low-income settings and the voices of individuals with CF from across the world. It will be a useful reference for clinicians, including all levels of trainees, across the whole multidisciplinary team, scientists and students.
