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 treatment produces tobramycin-resistant bacteria at a frequency different from the placebo group and whether the emergence of resistance is associated with a lack of clinical response.
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, multicenter study.
Patients receive tobramycin or placebo by inhalation twice daily for 28 days followed by 28 days of rest. This treatment is repeated twice, for a total of 3 courses of therapy.
Patients are followed every 2 weeks for the first 8 weeks, then every 4 weeks, and then at 4 weeks after the last treatment.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study assesses the aerosol delivery characteristics (measured by nebulization time, serum and sputum tobramycin pharmacokinetic parameters) and safety of tobramycin administered for i...
Inhaled tobramycin is important in the treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ( Pa ) infections in cystic fibrosis (CF). However, despite its use it fails to attenuate the clinical progression of CF lung...

Intestinal dysbiosis has been described in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and probiotics have been proposed to restore microbial composition. Aim of the study was to investigate the effects of Lactobacillus rha...
(1) Background: Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles (NPs) loaded with Tobramycin were prepared using a solvent-evaporation method. (2) Methods: The NPs were coated with low molecular we...
There are many challenges to providing end-of-life care (EOLC) to people with cystic fibrosis (CF).
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 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.
A rehabilitation therapy for removal of copious mucus secretion from the lung of patients with diseases such as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS; BRONCHIECTASIS; PULMONARY ABSCESS; or CYSTIC FIBROSIS. The patient's head is placed in a downward incline (so the TRACHEA is inferior to the affected area) for 15- to 20-minute sessions.
