STUDY BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
It is now known that lung disease begins very early in some children with CF, even before breathing problems develop. Current treatments do not prevent lung damage from occurring and as many as 70% of 3 year olds with CF have lung damage such as bronchiectasis shown on a Chest CT scan. This study will look at whether treatment with azithromycin, a drug that has been found to help people with CF, can prevent the development of bronchiectasis.
