BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Thoracic Society (ATS) has rated the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Web site -- www.cff.org -- the top online source of information about cystic fibrosis. In its "Best of the Web" review of 2008, the American Thoracic Society evaluated 150 Web sites containing information about cystic fibrosis.

"This is an outstanding site with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available for most issues regarding cystic fibrosis," noted the American Thoracic Society in its review, adding: "The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the preeminent organization involved with matters relating to cystic fibrosis in the United States, if not the world."

The American Thoracic Society conducts an annual review of respiratory health Web sites to help healthcare professionals and patients identify the most reliable, current sources of information. Web sites are rated based on five criteria: authority, currency, accuracy, navigation and readability, and utility. The Foundation's Web site earned the highest rating in all five categories -- five stars.

"We strive to provide the best online information about cystic fibrosis and to be a valuable resource for anyone affected by this disease," said Amy DeMaria, senior vice president of communications of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "We are honored to be recognized by the American Thoracic Society."
