Sample text

Together with the therapeutic impact of sub-inhibitory antibiotic concentrations on bacterial virulence, this seems sufficient to improve clinical outcome, reduce inflammatory parameters, increase quality of life, and improve nutritional status of the patients. g. in sputum plugs). To obtain sufficiently high antibiotic dosages in the CF lung and improve the efficacy of antibiotic delivery, an increasing number of antibiotics (including colistimethate sodium, tobramycin, aztreonam, ciprofloxacin, and amikacin) have been or are being developed as new formulations suitable for delivery by the aerosolised route, a strategy which reduces adverse effects compared with intravenously administered antibiotics.

Aeruginosa colonization is beneficial, since early antibiotic treatment can be initiated before the infection becomes established. Therefore it is recommended that all CF patients, regardless of clinical status, should have a respiratory tract culture performed at least quarterly.  aeruginosa.  aeruginosa infection by vaccination seems a rational strategy and might in future be achieved.  aeruginosa, were stopped because of adverse immunological reactions. More recently, trials of vaccines based on exotoxin A-polysaccharide and on Pseudomonas-flagella have been disappointing.

In contrast, it is likely that BCC rely on a different adaptation resembling that of the closely related, highly virulent pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis. 2).  cenocepacia, contain a mutation inhibiting exopolysaccharide synthesis.  aeruginosa in the CF lung, the mucoid colonial phenotype of BCC is lost during chronic infection. Treatment Antibiotic treatment of BCC infections is difficult since the pathogen is generally resistant to many classes of antibiotics including aminoglycosides, quinolones, β-lactams, and antimicrobial peptides.
