Potential new treatment for cystic fibrosis uncovered

This article is about how there might be a way to slow down the process of the genetic disease that is known to attack the lungs and other organs, Cystic fibrosis. This new way is to use a synthetic polypeptide called Ta1 and use its properties to reduce the symptoms of the disease. This method of using this material has been used in several other countries up till now butt has never been used till now in the United States. This method has also been used in mice with the condition with success. This information is interesting to know about to me because this is a material that has already had success with different illness' in other countries. I'm more a less curious on whether there are any side effects of any kind that would involve Ta1.
