Antibacterial defenses in the airway are dependent on multifactorial influences that determine the composition of both fluid and/or electrolytes at the surface of the airway and the secretory products that aid in bacterial killing and clearance. In cystic fibrosis (CF), these mechanisms of airway protection may be defective, leading to increased colonization with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Submucosal glands, a predominant site of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein… CONTINUE READING
