Emerging Bacteria Species Shows Antibiotic Resistance, Patient Transmission

The Achromobacter bacteria species that is an increasing source of chronic lung infections in people with cystic fibrosis (CF) shows evidence of patient-to-patient transmission and emerging antibiotic resistance, scientists in Denmark report. Their study, “Transmission and antibiotic resistance of Achromobacter in cystic fibrosis,” was published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology.  Most CF live with chronic bacterial airway infections, due to problems with mucus production and clearance. The most common pathogen in these infections is Pseudomonas…
