Lung infection is the main cause of disease in CF patients. New ways to identify germs that cause lunginfections based on analysis of DNA have uncovered more germs than expected. This includes germs thatcannot live in air, but can live in mucus. Therefore we want to understand how these new germs are relatedto CF disease. We are interested in tracking the amount of each germ present in the lung during periods ofstable lung function and during exacerbation. The goal of the project is to understand how each germ foundin the lungs of CF patients is involved in disease and the best way to treat lung infections in CF.
