The past 10 years of cystic fibrosis treatment: the road to cure.
Claudio Castaños et al. Lancet Respir Med 2023 10 (10) 864-865

From the paper: " Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease associated with high rates of premature death. There have been many advances in clinical care for cystic fibrosis during the past 50 years, such as the widespread implementation of newborn screening for early diagnosis, enhanced mucociliary clearance techniques, and improvements in nutrition (including adjusted pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy and a high-energy, high-fat diet). However, the life expectancy of patients with cystic fibrosis is still substantially shorter than that of the general population."

NIH launches largest precision nutrition research effort of its kind
NIH ALL of Us, May 2023 Brand

The National Institutes of Health is now enrolling participants in a landmark initiative to advance nutrition research. Nutrition for Precision Health, powered by the All of Us Research Program (NPH), is working with 14 sites across the United States to engage 10,000 participants from diverse backgrounds and learn more about how our bodies respond differently to food. NPH will use artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches to analyze information provided by participants in order to develop algorithms that predict responses to dietary patterns. The study’s findings may one day allow healthcare providers to offer more customized nutritional guidance to improve overall health.
