Cystic fibrosis & clinical trials
A plain language glossary
Welcome to our glossary. This glossary explains words that are often used in clinical trials and research studies in cystic fibrosis.
We hope the glossary will be useful for people in the cystic fibrosis community who want to learn more about clinical trials. We also hope the glossary helps research teams who write about clinical trials. Find out more about our glossary.
To really understand a word, sometimes you need more information than a short glossary explanation. To help understand related groups of words, we’re writing articles to help you understand how some words in our glossary fit together.
