    Background: Fatigue is a complex, disabling symptom in non-CF bronchiectasis (nCF-Br). Fatigue can be formally measured using the validated fatigue impact scale (FIS). The relationship between fatigue and clinically important factors such as airflow obstruction, breathlessness or Pseudomonas...

    Chronic airway infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa contribute to the progression of pulmonary disease in individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF). In the setting of CF, within-patient adaptation of a P. aeruginosa strain generates phenotypic diversity that can complicate microbiological...

    Background: Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients are vulnerable to airway colonization with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In case eradication fails after antibiotic treatment, patients become chronically colonized with P. aeruginosa, with recurrent pulmonary exacerbation, for which patients typically are...

    The present study was performed to isolate, characterize and evaluate the prevalence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) in 600 samples (environmental and clinical) at Upper Egypt. Antibiotic sensitivity, biotyping and molecular identification of P. aeruginosa isolates were determined, as...
