States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product
cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the
lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections. The mucus also
obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body
break down and absorb food.
