Hello Everyone,

I am currently a graduate student working on a project dealing with CF. A company has come up with a
new gene therapy technique based on repairing the mRNA in order to treat the disease. While it may
be a while before this therapy is approved, I want to obtain opinions on the subject.

What would a cure for CF be worth in dollars to you?

How much do you estimate that you spend on CF drugs each year?

How effective in controlling the symptoms are these drugs?

How quickly and with what amount of testing would you like to see before trying gene therapy?

Thank you for your time and any other comments that you may like to ad.

Wendy
