Cystic Fibrosis

The Center for Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis was founded in 1972 and is one of the largest in Germany. We are currently the only center in Germany to offer the entire spectrum of cystic fibrosis care - from comprehensive diagnostics (genetics, sweat test, electrophysiological examinations such as intestinal short-circuit current measurement (ICM) and measurement of the nasal potential difference (nPD)), to transplantation (lung, liver). We regularly treat approx. 200 patients under the age of 18 years with cystic fibrosis and cystic fibrosis-like disorders.

A seamless transition to age-appropriate care by our internal medicine colleagues (for our patients over the age of 18) is ensured by the close cooperation with the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center as a transition outpatient clinic.

In 2005, the center was awarded the Christiane Herzog-Prize for special achievements in patient care and is certified as a recognized institution for children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis by Patient Self-Help MUKO e.V. with the Certificate Plus.

We participate in the quality assurance measures and the benchmarking project of the MUKO e.V. for continuous quality improvement. We are a member of the European study network for cystic fibrosis and regularly participate in the latest drug and other European and worldwide studies.
