Cystic Fibrosis
In Brief

Explore the sequelae of long COVID, the range genetic therapies designed to target certain cancers, and developments in cystic fibrosis.

You might note some changes in ReFlections’ editorial team: Dr. Daniel D. Zimmerman is now RGA’s Chief Science Advisor, and ReFlections co-editor Dr. Adela Osman has assumed Dan’s previous position as Head of Global Medical. For more information, please see page 22.

Three familiar ReFlections authors are returning to our pages. Dr. John Lefebre, FRCPC, Senior Technical Global Medical Director, RGA International, shares his substantial COVID-19 knowledge in his discussion of the sequelae of long COVID and its risk to long-term disability portfolios. As our knowledge of human genetics expands, so is the range genetic therapies designed to target certain cancers. Dr. Radhika Counsell, Consulting Medical Officer, RGA UK Services Limited, weighs in with the newest information about trends in these immunotherapies. Hilary Henly, Global Medical Researcher, Strategic Research, RGA, provides a detailed review of cystic fibrosis and encourages insurers to begin contemplating at least limited term cover.  

In 2023, the Longer Life Foundation, RGA’s research collaboration with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, will mark its 25th anniversary. To find out more about the coming year, please see page 21. We trust you will find this issue both interesting and informative. Please do not hesitate to let us know how we can continue to improve ReFlections for you.
