This study is looking at how two antibiotics work when combined to treat patients with cystic fibrosis who have a chronic infection called Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa).
Patients with CF commonly get chronic infections in their lungs which are often treated with the antibiotics. Some study data has suggested that combining two antibiotics causes them to not work as well when treating a Pa infection. We do not know if this is true. The purpose of this study is to see how an investigational antibiotic and an approved antibiotic work together to treat CF patients with chronic Pa infection.
What we're hoping for
We hope to learn if combining antibiotics makes them less effective or not in treating Pa infection in patients with cystic fibrosis.
