Pigs bred with cystic fibrosis provide model to mimic human disease
Date:9/25/2008

er is born, the piglets are immediately flown to Iowa where physicians who perform the corrective surgery on human newborns with CF do the same for the pigs. Meanwhile, MU researchers perform analysis during the transit to determine which piglets have the mutations

"So far, all the mutations in the pigs have exactly mimicked the problems in humans born with CF," Prather said. "The whole cellular physiology of the pig is similar to humans. That's why having this break- through model is so exciting for the potential it has to move research on cystic fibrosis forward."
