Dr Vicky LeGrys has recently received a grant from the Legacy of Angels Foundation to support research into a novel sweat testing method for diagnosing cystic fibrosis.  The new method is designed as a point of care device, deriving sweat chloride concentration from a colorimetric patch.  This new method will be compared to the reference qualitative pilocarpine iontophoresis test and will enroll 300 subjects at 6 cystic fibrosis care centers across the US. In the first phase of the project, Dr. LeGrys will visit the 6 centers to ensure the reference method is being performed according to CLSI and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation standards.
