Clinical Approaches to MDR Lung Infections

Volume 8, Issue 4.

Multidrug resistant lung infections present an increasingly common and increasingly dangerous threat to all individuals with cystic fibrosis.  Common CF pathogens — Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Burkholderia cepacia complex, Achromobacter xylosoxidans, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia — are all showing increasing resistance to clinicians’ usual antibiotic armamentarium.

In this issue, Dr. Claire Elson, from the University of Missouri Kansas City School of Pharmacy, and Dr. Christopher Oermann, from the UMKC School of Medicine, describe strategies for the clinical management of these resistant infections.

Lung Transplant and CRC Screening

Volume 8, Issue 2.

Screening to avoid the morbidity and mortality of colorectal cancer (CRC) in patients with CF, with the incidence of CRC rising, has become an increasingly important challenge, particularly among lung transplant patients.  But how and when should patients be screened? With colonoscopy or non-invasive FIT? Before or after transplant?  Are there patients who should not be screened, and why?

In this issue, Dr. Denis Hadjiliadis from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania discusses the clinical aspects of screening patients with CF to prevent CRC.
