Impact of antibiotic treatment for pulmonary exacerbations on bacterial diversity in cystic fibrosis.


BACKGROUND A diverse array of bacterial species is present in the CF airways, in addition to those recognised as clinically important. Here, we investigated the relative impact of antibiotics, used predominantly to target Pseudomonas aeruginosa during acute exacerbations, on other non-pseudomonal species. METHODS The relative abundance of viable P… (More)
