Care and Treatment

Conditions Treated

Adult cystic fibrosis

Adult-onset of a hereditary disorder affecting the exocrine glands, causes the overproduction of thick mucus which can block pancreatic ducts, intestines and lungs, resulting in respiratory infection. 

Interstitial lung disease (ILD)

A large group of lung diseases and disorders which cause progressive scarring of lung tissue, often resulting in permanent loss of that tissue's ability to breathe and carry oxygen into the bloodstream.

Transplant diabetes

Some people who did not have diabetes before their transplant may find that they now have high blood sugars.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
