TitleThe airway microbiota in cystic fibrosis: a complex and dynamic biological community and implications for therapeutic management
Study TypeMetagenomics
Abstract Given the polymicrobial nature of pulmonary infections in patients with cystic fibrosis, it is essential to enhance our knowledge on the composition of the microbial community to improve cystic fibrosis management. In this study, we developed a powerful pyrosequencing approach to extensively explore .. [more]
Description Polymicrobial infections are increasingly recognized as clinically important in cystic fibrosis (CF), which is a human autosomal recessive disease resulting in decreased clearance of mucus from the lungs with concomitant microbial pulmonary infections conducing to lung damage and death of patients. ..
