Mice with CF – Lucky bastards

I’m getting pretty tired of “mice with CF cured” stories.  How about some “humans with CF cured” stories?

Actually, I’m grateful these mice are taking one for us humans.  I just wish the drug process would move faster.  Take Cayston, for example.  It’s the first new inhaled drug for CF in 10 years.  10 years!  We need more drugs and we need them now.

In the meantime, thanks again to the furry critters who’ve saved me from taking a drug that would have made my pancreas melt or my lungs burst into flames.   They’re the unsung heroes of the day.  🙂
