Cystic Fibrosis Related Bone Disease: the Role of CFTR

The purpose of this research study is to see how the bones of people with cystic fibrosis change over time compared to healthy people.

The study consists of 3 study visits at Massachusetts General Hospital over a two year period. Each study visit lasts about 3 hours and involves:
• Lab work (urine and blood tests)
• Brief questionnaire
• Meeting with a nutritionist
• Bone density scans

We are looking for healthy volunteers who are:
• Age 6-75 years old
• Not currently pregnant
• Have a normal weight/body mass index
• Do not have any medical problems or take any medications that can affect
bone health

Participants will receive $50 for each of the 3 study visits. Contact Melissa Putman at msputman@partners.org or 857-218-5017.
