Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder affecting multiple organ systems. The leading cause of morbidity and mortality is a progressive decline in pulmonary function resulting from airway damage caused by thickened secretions, complicated by chronic microbial infection. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most prevalent organism colonizing the lungs of CF patients (up to 80 % of the colonizations of lungs of patients aged .18 years) (Ramsey, 1996; CFF, 2002). It is rarely eradicated… CONTINUE READING
