Standard versus biofilm antimicrobial susceptibility testing to guide antibiotic therapy in cystic fibrosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The antibiotics used to treat pulmonary infections in people with cystic fibrosis are typically chosen based on the results of antimicrobial susceptibility testing performed on bacteria traditionally grown in a planktonic mode (grown in a liquid). However, there is considerable evidence to suggest that Pseudomonas aeruginosa actually grows in a… (More)
