    IUPUI microbiologists uncover clues to clustering of lethal bacteria in CF patients' lungs

    IUPUI microbiologists uncover clues to clustering of lethal bacteria in CF patients' lungs

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Individuals with cystic fibrosis, or CF, have a high risk of chronic pneumonia because the thick, sticky mucus that builds up in their lungs provides an environment conducive to the growth of pneumonia-causing bacteria. Once chronic pneumonia develops, it is nearly impossible to cure and can become deadly. The most common bacterium responsible for chronic pneumonia in CF patients is Pseudomonas aeruginosa, or P. aeruginosa for short
