BACKGROUND Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been located in the endobronchiolar spaces of patients with cystic fibrosis where nutrients may be limited. In these sites it is thought that adaptation of the pathogen might occur and growth factors, present in relative excess, may thus promote survival of the organism. Auxotrophy of pulmonary isolates of P aeruginosa has previously been shown to be a feature of cystic fibrosis and chronic lung sepsis; auxotrophic isolates have additional nutritional… CONTINUE READING
