This work became possible after the release of the 10th anniversary issue of the Cystic Fibrosis Register of the Russian Federation, which includes dynamic patient monitoring during targeted therapy. 

Elena Kondratieva noted that cystic fibrosis is the most frequent within the orphaned diseases, has many mutations, so targeted therapy is not suitable for all patients.
