    Great work Michael! Were you able to see if treadmill time also increased? Do you have any theories as to why 6MWD did not improve? I am more familiar with 6MWD in COPD or ILD, were there can sometimes be a ceiling effect. Yet these CF patients are quite ill so I doubt a ceiling effect would be the case here.

  • Richard Leung says:

    It seems counterintuitive that treadmill speed should improve, but not six minute walk distance. If you can walk faster, shouldn’t you be able to walk farther in a given span of time? Is there some other factor that limits six minute walk distance not related to physiology?
