S04: INF/MIC: Bacterial Adaptation & Persistence in the CF Lung

Oct 9, 2014 2:00pm ‐ Oct 9, 2014 3:50pm

Standard: $49.99


The goal of this session is to define the contribution of pathogen diversity and host response to the persistence of bacterial respiratory infections in CF. How these processes impact treatment success or failure will be discussed. The topic of targeting biofilms and persisters in this environment will also be examined.

Learning Objectives:
  • Assess the role that bacterial diversity plays in the establishment of persistence in CF
  • Describe the impact of host response to bacterial phenotypes
  • Evaluate therapies targeting chronic bacterial populations
