Read article - Brian O'Sullivan, professor of pediatrics, is quoted about a new cystic fibrosis therapy that dramatically improved patients' lung function and showed clear signs of targeting the genetic root of the disease, instead of just alleviating symptoms—a breakthrough so long-sought that many doctors and patients are moved to tears when talking about it. "I'm in my 60s now, and I never thought I would see this day. It's pretty amazing," says O'Sullivan, who was not involved in the study.
