    RECOVER
    Summary
    We have designed a 'real world' study involving children and adults with CF across ten pediatric and adult CF centres in the UK and Ireland in collaboration with CF registry of Ireland and the UK CF registry. We will be examining a wide range of well-established tests in these people, as well as some newer, more sensitive tests looking at how this new treatment might help the lung and abdominal problems in PWCF. We will be looking at how PWCF feel about this new treatment, how it affects their quality of life and whether it affects their need for, or ability to take, other CF treatments. Lastly we will be determining whether we can predict who will respond to this treatment by taking blood samples from PWCF, generating lung cells from these samples and testing medications on them in the lab.

    Summary
    We are collaborating with Prof Eleanor Molloy in this multidisciplinary research group where we will be looking at sleep disordered breathing in children with Down's Syndrome (CWDS). CWDS have a lot of sensory issues which challenge the use of approved gold standard polysomnography testing for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea in this group. We are looking at validating the use of alternative technology which is less disruptive to CWDS and can generate clinically meaningful data. This includes mandibular movement signal based system and/or peripheral arterial tonometery measurement for the diagnosis of sleep apnoea.
