    Background: Inflammation plays a critical role in lung disease development and progression in cystic fibrosis. Azithromycin is used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis lung disease, although its mechanisms of action are poorly understood. We tested the hypothesis that azithromycin modulates...

    Most patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) experience recurrent and chronic endobronchial Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections. It is possible to prevent or delay the onset of these chronic infections in most patients with CF by eliminating cross-infection and by early aggressive antibiotic treatment...

    Background: Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) and Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc), commonly found in the lungs of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, often produce cyanide (CN), which inhibits cellular respiration. CN in sputa is a potential biomarker for lung infection by CF pathogens. However, its...

    Non-cystic fibrosis-related bronchiectasis is a chronic inflammatory lung disease, which is regarded as an "orphan" lung disease, with little research devoted to the study of this condition. Bronchiectasis results in impaired quality of life and mortality if left untreated. The tools available...

Aminoglycosides are active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and synergizes with beta lactum antibiotics which effectively penetrate the sputum. It also discusses why there is little concern about nephrotoxicity...

    We identified double and triple antibiotic combinations effective against biofilm-grown Burkholderia cepacia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa sampled from cystic fibrosis (CF) patients undergoing acute pulmonary exacerbations. Sputum bacteria from 110 CF patients were grown as biofilms. Combination...
