Cystic fibrosis-associated colitis and fibrosing colonopathy
Adenoma, Liver Cell
Hepatocyte Nuclear Factor 1-alpha

Affected persons have taken larger doses of pancreatic enzymes than similar patients with cystic fibrosis, and have bloody diarrhea. We developed a medical protocol that may avoid surgical resection of the colon in some of these patients.
