The purpose of the study is to learn if a urine and sputum test can be used to measure if lung damage occurs over a long period of time (two years) or when patients are sick. Another purpose is to learn if treatment in the hospital with antibiotics and airway clearance decreases the amount of damage done to lungs. We would like to develop a urine and sputum test to help us to better understand what happens in patients lungs over time and when you get sick.
