This study will consist of a single visit where researchers will collect nasal cells and a blood sample. CFTR genotype will be confirmed and a repository of rare CFTR mutation specimens will be established and made available to other researchers for further study.

This study is for people with CF over the age of 2 who have a rare CFTR mutation. This study may require nasal swabs and/or other methods of cell collection.

At this time, participants are required to have two pre-mature stop codon ("nonsense") mutations. Operations Memos will detail any future current genotype targets.

2.5 years after this study was started, they FINALLY opened it up to those with rare mutations other than nonsense mutations.

Eligible mutations:
CF patients who are homozygous for pre-mature stop codons
CF patients with two mutations in the CFTR gene:

i. One allele must be a F508del ii. The other allele must be a pre-mature stop codon mutation

CF patients with two mutations in the CFTR gene:

i. At least one allele must be a pre-mature stop codon mutation ii. The second allele can be any of the following: G85E, N1303K, R334W, 3849+10kb C->T, 621+1G->T

CF patients who are homozygous for: G85E, N1303K, R334W, 3849+10kb C->T, or 621+1G->T
