Chronic polymicrobial lung infections in adult cystic fibrosis patients are typically dominated by high levels of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Determining the impact of P. aeruginosa growth on airway secretion composition is fundamental to understanding both the behaviour of this pathogen in vivo, and its relationship with other potential colonising species. We hypothesised that the marked differences in the phenotypes of clinical isolates would be reflected in the metabolite composition of spent… CONTINUE READING
