Overview

Every individual with cystic fibrosis inherits two CFTR genes, one from each parent. Children who inherit two mutated CFTR genes from both parents will have cystic fibrosis.

Risk Factors

  • Every individual with cystic fibrosis inherits two CFTR genes, one from each parent. Children who inherit two mutated CFTR genes from both parents will have cystic fibrosis.[1]
  • Children with only one gene will act as a carrier for next generations.
