Impact of respiratory infection antibiotics upon the gut microbiomes of children with cystic fibrosis (ref: RDFC24/HLS/APP/VDGASTCF)

People with CF (pwCF) suffer from persistent gastrointestinal (GI) abnormalities that impact quality of life. Also present is dysbiosis of the gut microbiome that are hypothesized to exacerbate GI abnormalities in CF. Read more

Bacterial pathobiont and commensal colonisation in the human respiratory tract

Bacterial colonisation of the human upper respiratory tract (URT) is a pre-requisite for multiple diseases including pneumonia, otitis media, sinusitis, exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and, less commonly, diseases resulting from bacteraemia such as meningitis.

The Holistic Microbiome in Health and Disease: Linking the Oral, Gut and Respiratory Microbiomes

The human gut microbiome is recognised as a major determinant of health and disease. Studies to date, including those of the international Human Microbiome Project, have largely focused on individual body sites such as nose or mouth or faeces. Read more

Dysfunctional antifungal potency of the respiratory mucosa in COPD

Inhalation of Aspergillus fumigatus spores cause >3,000,000 chronic and >200,000 invasive diseases annually worldwide. Invasive aspergillosis carries a 50% mortality rate overall, but mortality rate approaches 100% if diagnosis is delayed or missed and it is >75% in certain cohorts of patients, such as COPD sufferers.

Evaluating Regional Specific Training Stimulus (RSTS) for people with COPD attending pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation has many benefits for people with COPD including reduced breathlessness and improved quality of life. However, uptake is low and drop-out is high meaning many people do not benefit. Read more
