Life threatening infection with species of the Burkholderia cepacia complex frequently occurs as a result of cross infection among individuals with cystic fibrosis. Stringent infection control measures have decreased but not eliminated such infection in this vulnerable population, implying that non-patient reservoirs contribute to ongoing acquisition. However, strains common to both the natural environment and patients with cystic fibrosis have not yet been described. By use of various… Expand
