Trying to replace the faulty gene has been a failure so far. The new science of epigenetics tells us that our genes (even "bad" ones) are changed by diet and life style. I havegiven children with CF vitamin supplements. They help greatly but there is no cure. Find a physician who uses nutrient treatment.
