Infection of the respiratory tract of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa presents a major problem for the clinical management of these patients. A previous study had shown that P.aeruginosa in CF apparently altered their surface antigens during infection and this change was clinically significant. As a result I carried out a) an immunological study of the surface antigens of P.aeruginosa, b) a longitudinal bacteriological survey of infection in CF patients and, c) an investigation of the immune response of patients to the varieties of P.aeruginosa recovered from their sputum.
