A biomarker is a biochemical or a substance in the body that can be used to measure disease activity or effects of treatment. There is a need to identify biomarkers in CF that can be used to more quickly evaluate potential new treatments. Pulmonary exacerbations provide a nice opportunity to define the effect of intravenous antibiotics on candidate biomarkers and to determine whether clinical improvements are related to changes in bloodstream biomarkers.
