This is multicenter placebo-controlled study evaluating the safety and efficacy of a 14-day treatment of AI at two dosage levels as compared to placebo, given twice daily, in CF patients with P. aeruginosa lung infection, delivered by the eFlow investigational nebulizer.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Aztreonam for Inhalation (AI), Placebo

The purpose of this research study is to see if an experimental drug called Aztreonam for Inhalation Solution is safe and effective to treat Burkholderia lung infections in patients with C...
The purpose of this study is to see if aztreonam lysinate for inhalation (AI) is safe and effective for cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with lung infections due to a bacteria called Pseudomo...
The primary objective of this program is to provide expanded access to aztreonam lysine for inhalation (AZLI) 75 mg prior to its commercial availability to patients with cystic fibrosis (C...
The purpose of this study is to see if a 28-day course of AI is safe and effective for cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with lung disease due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) infection.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of a 28-day course of aztreonam lysine for inhalation (AZLI) in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), mild lung disea...
A potential positive effect of probiotics in cystic fibrosis (CF) on fecal calprotectin (FCP), pulmonary exacerbations and weight has been described in small controlled trials.
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...
In healthy lungs, epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) is regulated by short, palate, lung, and nasal clone 1 (SPLUNC1). In cystic fibrosis (CF), ENaC is hyperactivated in part due to a loss of SPLUNC1 fu...
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.

Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
