Cystic Fibrosis Mortality in Australia

This project is examining trends in mortality from cystic fibrosis in Australia using data supplied by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and lung transplant units of hospitals in Melbourne and Sydney. Of research interest is whether modern treatments have increased survival from birth, and whether the outcomes differ for males and females. Activities during 2007 were confined to the time-consuming tasks of seeking ethics approvals and to obtaining and cleaning the data.

This project is a participant based study
