Number of Participants Being Recruited:
Single / Multi-Center:
STUDY BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
Inhaled tobramycin has been reported to be highly effective at clearing Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) from bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) in children with cystic fibrosis (CF) age 6 moâ??6 yr, but inflammation was unaffected by this treatment, and infection occurred again for the mucoid strains of Pseudomonas. Some bacteria in the CF airway may be both inaccessible to inhaled antibiotics, and â??hiddenâ?? from BALF, by location in thick secretions, and Pseudomonas may not be effectively cleared in paranasal sinuses. This study will look at the effects of treatment with intravenous antibiotics compared to inhaled tobramycin in clearing mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa and reducing inflammation in the airways.
6 Months - 16 Years
