OBJECTIVES To characterize by molecular techniques Burkholderia strains responsible for respiratory tract infections in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients (children and adults), to assign the Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) isolates to a genomovar and to assess the presence of cblA and esmR genes in bacteria. Unique or sequential Burkholderia isolates (n=48) that had been collected from eight CF children and 17 adults over several (4-6) years were investigated; moreover 11 reference strains were… CONTINUE READING
