Optical measurement of CFTR-dependent sweat secretion stimulated by a beta-adrenergic cocktail (C-phase) vs. CFTR-independent sweat secretion induced by methacholine (M-phase) can discriminate cystic fibrosis (CF) patientts from controls and healthy carriers by the ratio of sweat rate in the C-phase vs. the M-phase (C/M ratio). However, image analy...
Article
Sweat chloride (Cl‐) concentration is the gold standard for diagnosing cystic fibrosis (CF). This is however, challenging among patients with borderline values. Previous studies have reported that the sweat Cl‐/Na⁺ ratio may be useful for diagnosing CF; however, little is known about Cl‐/K⁺ and (Cl‐+Na⁺)/K⁺ ratios. This study aimed to retrospective...
