Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Fifty one independent cystic fibrosis (CF) families originating from a restricted area of Southern Italy (Campania) have been analyzed for KM19 and XV2c haplotypes and the ΔF508 mutation: 54% of the total CF chromosomes show the ΔF508 mutation. No significative correlations were obtained when clinical score, radiological score, Pseudomonas colonization, or clinical symptoms at presentation were matched with the presence or absence of the ΔF508 mutation.
