Oxford Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre research

We are committed to raising the profile of cystic fibrosis in Oxford.

Current research projects

Exploring clinicians' approach to weight gain in people with CF on CFTR modulator treatment - a qualitative study run by Joanna Snowball, Dietitian at OACFC and funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre. J.E. Snowball, W.G. Flight, L. Heath et al., A paradigm shift in cystic fibrosis nutritional care: Clinicians’ views on the management of patients with overweight and obesity, Journal of Cystic Fibrosis.

Antibiotic Resistance in the Microbiome Oxford (ARMORd Study) - collaboration with Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford.

ACtiF Study - collaboration with Dr Martin Wildman and colleagues at the University of Sheffield. This research study has developed the CFHealthHub programme - a country-wide collaborative to learn how to support people with CF with adherence to nebulised therapies. Participation in CFHH provides a contribution to other studies across the CF research community.

National efficacy effectiveness CFTR modulators optimisation programme (NEEMO) - this study, hosted by the CFHealthHub platform, looks to explore the impact of adherence to nebulised therapies in people with CF who are prescribed CFTR modulators.

CF Storm - this multicentre NIHR and HTA funded study is exploring the impact of discontinuing nebulised mucolytic treatments including DNase and Hypertonic Saline in CF patients prescribed Kaftrio.
