emerging pathogens affecting cystic fibrosis patients Although P. aeruginosa has remained the predominant pulmonary pathogen in CF patients, recent years have seen the emergence of several new pathogens of clinical relevance to CF.

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Biofilms in Cystic Fibrosis

P. aeruginosa cause chronic biofilm lung infections in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. The matrix of the biofilm is the polysaccharide alginate, and is the major cause of lung tissue damage, lung

The role of bacterial biofilms in chronic infections.

 ·

Biofilm infections, such as pneumonia in cystic fibrosis patients, chronic wounds, chronic otitis media and implant- and catheter-associated infections, affect millions of people in the developed world each year and many deaths occur as a consequence.

Cystic Fibrosis Pseudomonas Aeruginosa | CF News Today

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the key bacterial agent of cystic fibrosis (CF) lung infections, and the most important pathogen in progressive and severe CF lung disease. This opportunistic pathogen can grow and proliferate in patients, and exposure can occur in hospitals and other healthcare settings.

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa in Cystic Fibrosis Patients

About 60% of people with cystic fibrosis have a chronic respiratory infection caused by a bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This bacteria settles into the thick mucus trapped in the airways. Once Pseudomonas aeruginosa invades the respiratory tract, it is hard to get rid of.
