After two weeks, KOST Quartet is back with different fantasy costumes. KOST Quartet would entertain us in middle of COVID-19 outbreak. Girls who represent latest drugs for cystic fibrosis aka CF aka 65 roses are here by Hana Planckaert. We are overjoyed to see them again. We can’t wait to see them.

In recent days, admin is making short songs again. Admin made such songs with Musescore, admin’s longtime favorite music making software. The reasons are being the free software, easy to use, can save score data in different forms and available in different operating systems. Admin has been using Musescore since 2013 and still using as in July 2020.

KOST Quartet is rocking again in another fantasy costumes. They’re still proud with fantasy costumes which common on many video games. Actually, Hana Planckaert is fond of fantasy theme for undisclosed reasons. Hana Planckaert has been using fantasy themes on fashion postings since 2014 and still ongoing.

Fantasy costumes which KOST Quartet girls wearing are cleric. They’re happy and proud with their own cleric costumes. Kalydeco and Trikafta wear long dress while Orkambi and Symdeko wear short dress. The dresses are beautiful and cool for us. Many people adore them, but some people were disturbed due to flashy colors.

The dresses are made by Pilla, Borat’s cousin and Hana’s friends. They were made for almost two weeks due to moderate difficulty of designs of these dresses. The color schemes are similar with the logos of the mentioned drugs. Every girl who represents the respective drug has own styles and personalities.

Welcome KOST Quartet

Today Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog celebrates its sixth birthday. Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog established in June 30th 2014. The main aim of Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog is for promoting women empowerment through cycling teams and companies. Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog started cycling idoling contents from July 2014, then started company idoling contents from August 2019.

Hana would introduce four new female characters which aren’t related with road cycling or Borat Sagdiyev’s world. These characters are based of drugs for a rare genetic disease. Its name is cystic fibrosis aka CF aka 65 roses by children. FYI, cystic fibrosis is the genetic disease which there are defective genes cause damage of the lungs, digestive systems and other organs. Genes of cystic fibrosis sufferers cause mucus thickening on the lungs and digestive system. Sweat gland is also affected by cystic fibrosis which made sweat tasted salty and would turn into crystals.

Cystic fibrosis is the progressive and high maintenance disease. Cystic fibrosis sufferers usually able to do normal activities like attending school and work. Quality of life of cystic fibrosis sufferers nowadays is far better than in previous decades. Improvements of treatments and screening made cystic fibrosis sufferers live longer. In the past, cystic fibrosis sufferers were only lived for several months or years. In late 1930s, they only lived up to six months. Then, in mid 1950s, they only lived up to five years which made them unable to attend elementary/primary school. After that, in early 1960s, they lived up to ten years. Due to development of medical technology, they could live up to late teens in 1980s and then up to 30s in 2000s. Now, as of June 2020, they could live up to 48 years, some could reach their 50s even 60s.

Who are the new characters? They’re Kalydeco, Orkambi, Symdeko and Trikafta, four latest drugs for cystic fibrosis. These drugs are made by Vertex, an American pharmaceutical company which produces drugs for rare diseases. They’re used to target defective genes which present on cystic fibrosis sufferers. They were launched in 2010s decade and available in few countries. They have already approved by FDA in the US and few other countries. They’re available in tablets for all brands and oral granules for Kalydeco and Orkambi.
