Staphylococcus aureus causes chronic respiratory tract infections in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Using immunofluorescence and scanning and transmission electron microscopy we located S. aureus in lung specimens of three infected CF patients, in a nasal polyp of one CF patient, and in a suspension cell culture system of primary nasal epithelial cells in vitro. Very little of S. aureus was attached to the lung epithelium, whereas abundant S. aureus was detectable in the mucus of… CONTINUE READING
