Understanding gastrointestinal symptoms in Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a multi-system disorder affecting around 10,000 people in the UK, whose life expectancy is around 50 years. While the impact of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) on people’s respiratory systems is well known, the understanding of gastrointestinal symptoms that this inherited condition can cause among patients are less well understood.
NUH is sponsoring the CARDS-CF Study, which is developing a patient reported outcome measure through an online survey. People with CF aged 12 and older are invited to take part in the study to help shape the measure, which will allow daily measurement of gastrointestinal symptom burden in Cystic Fibrosis.

The E.mbrace Study will assess the effectiveness and safety of an investigational vaccine in the prevention of blood infections in adults aged 60 or over.
These blood infections can lead to serious complications such as dangerously low blood pressure or shock.
These infections are called an invasive (also known as systemic) infection, often referred to as an invasive E. coli disease (IED).
Although IED affects all ages, adults aged 60 years and older have an increased risk of developing IED, which is further increased if you have had a urinary tract infection (UTI) in the past.
What we learn in this study may be helpful for blood infection prevention in the future.
