OBJECTIVES Chronic pulmonary infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cystic fibrosis patients is virtually impossible to eradicate by means of existing free antibiotics. We sought to assess the antibacterial activities of liposomal gentamicin against clinical isolates of P. aeruginosa. METHODS Gentamicin was encapsulated into liposomes with different lipid(More)
OBJECTIVES Burkholderia cenocepacia (formally a genotype of Burkholderia cepacia complex called genomovar III) has emerged as a serious opportunistic pathogen in individuals with cystic fibrosis. We developed a liposomal antibiotic formulation composed of 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine and cholesterol (molar ratio 2:1) to overcome B.(More)
Recently, efficacy studies in mice have shown that amine-terminated cationic (CNP) nanoparticulate carriers of DTX offer an improved formulation of the drug for intravesical delivery. It is hypothesized that this improved efficacy may arise from a carrier mediated bladder exfoliation process that removes the urothelial barrier allowing for increased drug(More)
