Blood glucose levels exceeding 8 mM are shown to increase glucose levels in airway surface in cystic fibrosis (CF). Moreover, high levels of endobronchial glucose are proposed to increase the growth of common CF bacteria and feed the neutrophil‐driven inflammation. In the infected airways, glucose may be metabolized by glycolysis to lactate by both bacteria and neutrophils. Therefore, we aimed to...
Inhaled antibiotics are an important part of cystic fibrosis (CF) airway disease management and should be individualized to fit the microorganism and match patient needs. To investigate the implementation of personalized treatment, this study mapped the use of different types of inhaled antibiotics and adherence patterns.
We performed individual structured interviews in a cross‐sectional...
