First real-world multicentre study of the use of inhaled aztreonam lysine for cystic fibrosis (CF)

Patients with CF are susceptible to recurrent chronic respiratory tract infections, which can exacerbate and increase the risk of death and morbidity. In this study we look at the real world effectiveness of the inhaled antibiotics aztreonam lysine (CAYSTON®) in routine clinical practice. Data from the study was presented at the European Cystic Fibrosis Society conference in 2014, and led to a successful re-submission to the SMC
