P. aeruginosa is the most important bacterial patho- gen in patients with cystic fibrosis. Chronic pulmonary Information and Ordering
infection with P. aeruginosa is responsible for most of the morbidity and mortality in cystic fibrosis.
Diagnostics Sales and Marketing2 Herredsvejen Chronic P. aeruginosa infection can be discriminated from intermittent colonization by measuring serum IgG antibodies against P. aeruginosa. During the chro- nic infection a pronounced and increasing antibody response develops whereas this is not the case in inter- mittently colonized patients. The level of the antibody response in chronically infected patients correlates to the severity of the infection.
