Antibiotic Eradication of P. Aeruginosa Improves Long Term Lung Function in CF

Antibiotic eradication therapy (AET) against Pseudomonas aeruginosa improves lung function trajectory in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), according to retrospective analysis findings published in Journal of Cystic Fibrosis. Previous research has not assessed how CF is affected in the long-term by AET, the standard of care for early P. aeruginosa infection, a common pathogen of CF lung disease. P. aeruginosa early infection acts as a major predictor of morbidity and mortality in young children with CF. Researchers sought to evaluate …
