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.
