Limited studies previously carried out with this patient population have identified several viral, genetic, and immunologic factors that are associated with rapid disease progression, such as the early emergence of CXCR4-utilizing HIV strains, risk single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) [3] within interleukin-7R[alpha] or Toll-like receptor loci, and high concentrations of IP-10 (interferon [gamma] induced protein) in the plasma (3-7).
Results could reveal how CF develops, which in turn could lead to interventions that delay or prevent disease progression. The studies also could provide critical information to help resolve competing theories on the origin and progression of CF-associated abnormalities.
