Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition caused by a defect in the gene encoding the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) chloride channel. The Cystic Fibrosis Knowledge Centre provides healthcare professionals with access to disease awareness information, emerging and established treatment options and current best practice based on recently updated guidelines by the European Cystic Fibrosis Society (ECFS). A resources section contains external links to upcoming medical conferences and patient support groups.
This resource is developed by EPG Health Media for epgonline.org, supported by an independent educational grant from Vertex.
The Prostate Cancer Learning Hub has been designed with the busy healthcare professional in mind.

The disease awareness section provides you with access to a Prostate Cancer Knowledge Centre, which has been developed to provide you with easy to digest best practice guidance for the treatment and management of patients with prostate cancer.
