Lung infections are a chronic problem for patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Some patients with CF may have a type of bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa in their lungs that can cause infections or make their symptoms worse. Tobramycin inhalation solution (TOBI) is an approved antibiotic, which is inhaled directly into the lungs, and can be used to manage these infections. Tobramycin inhalation powder (TIP) is a new, experimental powder formulation of tobramycin that is inhaled directly into the lungs using a T-326 inhaler. The purpose of this research study is to determine if TIP is safe and effective when compared to placebo (a powder with no medicine) treatment.

This study compares the safety of the tobramycin solution for inhalation with the tobramycin dry powder formulation, used with a simple inhaler
This study is designed to show how well tobramycin inhalation powder works and how safe it is when produced by a modified manufacturing process
The purpose of this study is to support the selection of a safe and tolerable tobramycin inhalation powder (TIP) dose, and regimen that exhibits effective bacterial reduction of P. aerugin...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety and efficacy of tobramycin in patients with cystic fibrosis who are chronically colonized with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. II. Determine whether this tr...
To assess whether the inhalative combination of Tobramycin/Colistin is more effective in reducing Pseudomonas colony forming units (CFUs) and improvement of lung function than Colistin in ...
CF pulmonary guidelines recommend alternate therapy (one month on, one month off) with inhaled tobramycin for chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization in cystic fibrosis (CF). Tobramycin-inhaled po...
New isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) is generally treated with inhaled antipseudomonal antibiotics such as tobramycin inhalation solution (TIS). A therapeutic approach complementing traditiona...
Cystic fibrosis is the most prevalent metabolic chronic disease in Caucasian children in the Europe. Cystic fibrosis has seen approximately 1 in 3000 births in northern European countries. Birth preva...
The risk of vitamin E deficiency is of primary concern in cystic fibrosis patients. However, early diagnosis and routine vitamin E supplementation can lead to its normal or even high levels. In the pr...
An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)
A strain of mice widely studied as a model for cystic fibrosis. These mice are generated from embryonic stem cells in which the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator) gene is inactivated by gene targeting. As a result, all mice have one copy of this altered gene in all their tissues. Mice homozygous for the disrupted gene exhibit many features common to young cystic fibrosis patients, including failure to thrive, meconium ileus, and alteration of mucous and serous glands.
A device that delivers medication to the lungs in the form of a dry powder.
A species of STENOTROPHOMONAS, formerly called Xanthomonas maltophilia, which reduces nitrate. It is a cause of hospital-acquired ocular and lung infections, especially in those patients with cystic fibrosis and those who are immunosuppressed.

Affecting over 8,500 people in the UK, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening inherited diseases. Around half of the CF population can expect to live over 38 years, although improvements in treatments mean a baby born ...
