Summary

The project is intended to be realised in two phases. In the first stage, a case control study will be performed. In the second phase, double-blind, placebo controlled cross-over study will be conducted. The first stage it to compare innate immunity activation and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) expression between Pa positive and negative patients. In the second phase the effects of inhaled lactizole- TAS3R inhibitor will be assessed.

Description

Three visits have been planned during the entire study. During the first visit, all patients included in the study will have the following procedures: questionnaire tests, lung function tests, taste perception tests (gustometry) and exfoliative cytology of the nasal mucosa.

Patients with confirmed Pseudomonas aeruginosa presence in the airways will be randomly assigned to the Lactizole-Placebo group and the Placebo-Lactizole group, with a recommendation to take laktizol (3 ml) for 3 weeks at the concentration determined during the preliminary examination, in the nebulization 2 times per day) or placebo (3ml 0.9% NaCl solution in nebulization 2 once a day). The first nebulization of the solution issued during the visit will take place during the visit; each patient will undergo a clinical and spirometric assessment after 20 minutes of observation from completed nebulization.

During the second visit (after 4 weeks from visit 1), the first visit procedures will be repeated for all patients. Patients in the Lactizole-Placebo group will be recommended to take a placebo for 4 weeks (3 ml of 0.9% NaCl solution in nebulization 2 once a day); on the other hand, patients from the Placebo-Lactizole group will be advised to take lactisol for 4 weeks (3 ml of the solution in the concentration determined during the preliminary examination, in the nebulization 2 once a day). The first nebulization of the solution issued during the visit will take place during the visit; each patient will undergo a clinical and spirometric assessment after 20 minutes of observation from completed nebulization.

During the third visit (after 4 weeks from visit 2), the first visit procedures will be repeated for all patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Intestinal obstruction caused by congealed MECONIUM in the distal ILEUM and CECUM. It presents shortly after birth as a failure to pass meconium and frequently occurs in infants with CYSTIC FIBROSIS.
