Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia Research
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a genetic condition in which the cilia that lines the airway, ears, and sinuses doesn’t work correctly. This can lead to a buildup of bacteria and debris in the lungs, airway, and sinuses, leading to an increased chance of developing infections or bronchiectasis.
CHOP is a PCD Center of Excellence and participates in research studies to help identify and treat PCD. To learn about PCD research study opportunities, email PulmonaryResearch@email.chop.edu.
