  1. Group A: patients with the Y122X stop mutation. Group B: patients with another stop mutation. Group C: patients without any stop mutation. CFCS refers to the Cystic Fibrosis Clinical Score. FEV1, FVC, FEF25–75 as defined in Table 2 and are expressed as absolute values. Data are described as mean (SD). Comparison with Wilcoxon test.
