Welcome to the Australian Respiratory Early Surveillance Team for Cystic Fibrosis (AREST CF) website.
Our site is currently being redeveloped.
AREST CF is a group of doctors, allied health professionals and scientists who are researching ways to prevent lung disease in infants and children with cystic fibrosis.
By preventing lung disease early in life we believe that individuals with cystic fibrosis will live longer, more fulfilling lives.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition that affects approximately 1 in every 2800 babies in Australia. CF affects many of the body's organs including the lungs and digestive tract.
Of all the organs affected, chronic lung disease is the most serious complication of CF and is the most common cause of death.
