Özet

The majority of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients suffer from chronic respiratory infection with the opportunistic bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The virulence of P. aeruginosa is associated with the presence of various extracellular factors, like alginate, elastase, alkaline protease which contribute tissue destruction and assist bacterial invasion.
